HOW IT’S FRAMED
Andra Ursuta’s work reflects both the classical arts training she received in Romania as well as her education in critical theory in the US.
Ursuta was born in Salonta, Romania in 1977 and moved to the US to study contemporary art at Columbia University in 1997.
Her darkly comic sculptures deal with subject matter like cemeteries and traumatic memories. Her work thus forms a type of critical discourse analysis through art.
Asked to comment on her work for Interview Magazine, Ursuta said, “I’m just kind of reflecting unspoken attitudes that form the undercurrent of images and news stories, and the way contemporary experience is framed.”
She lives in New York.
Ursuta’s work is on view as part of the New Skin exhibition at the Aïshti Foundation, Jal el Dib.
