Alina Buga
Visual artist
Born: 1971, Vrancea, Romania
Living and working in Bucharest

Experiments with different media: performance, video, photography, installation, drawing, sculpture and digital.

Interests. Investigation of the relationship of art with the public space, by starting a dialogue between people and unconventional artistic forms, such as gesture, attitude, contextual art, environment interventions (see "balloon people”). Artistic interventions that can reshape a public square, a street, a city wall - works made of unconventional materials, which fit into an active / inactive space, in a fluidic way, participating spontaneously to every day life. Performances like “eco killers tonight”, while active in the Rostopasca group, and videos like “toxicomania”, have made each altered feeling to present itself and degenerate from it’s nature due to re-viewing and defiantly placing in the front of the viewer. Usage of fragments of mass communication components in order to find gestures, pieces to reclaim, aiming to reshape, re-empower them, to create a world similar to reality.

Member of Urma group, Rostopasca group and co-founder of Alert Studio.
