Madalina Zaharia’s work interlaces print, video, performance and sculptural installation. She is concerned with the telling and re-telling of ideas, with the continuous and unfaltering reiteration of accounts and associations. Stories and tales embedded in popular culture and how they are remembered, mis-remembered and exaggerated are often her starting point. Zaharia focuses on theatrical moments in time: memories and gestures that illuminate the effect of politics on everyday life.
