Vlad Nancă (b. 1979, Bucharest) studied at the National University of Arts, Bucharest, Department of Photography and Moving Image. His early practice designated a visionary artistic perspective, as much as triggered the coagulation of the young artist scene in Bucharest.
The cityscape of Bucharest was the backdrop for his poetical and subtly political artistic gestures. The shift from the embodied movement of his early actions in the city to embedded movement in the objects the artist makes and interferes with is visible in his recent practice. Through constant idiosyncratic humour and playful semiotics of imagery, Nancă’s recent practice unveils a resurgence of the notion of space (from architecture and public space to outer space) thus forging constellations of subjectivities, sculptures and installations.
