Quick Facts
Profile

Ioana Georgescu is a Montreal based artist and author born in Bucharest, Romania. Her work is presented in North America, Asia, the Middle East and Europe. It incorporates performance, video, photography, painting, drawing and writing. Ioana's projects can be seen in galleries, museums, city streets, ruins, as well as on water and in books. She holds a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature (Aesthetics) with a dissertation on frames, framing and artistic space. Has taught in the past cinema and cross-disciplinary courses in the Italian and Cultural Studies departments at McGill University. Ioana has published three novels in French: Évanouissement à Shinjuku (2005), L’homme d’Asmara (2010) and La Jetée, elle s’appellera Mo (2013). http://www.marchanddefeuilles.com/m...

Often process-based and site specific, her work is influenced by a constant interest in body, site, memory, identity and displacement. Selected art venues and residencies : Townhouse Gallery - Cairo, Museum of Contemporary Art Novi Sad, Museum of Civilization in Quebec City, Agora de la Danse (Piscine-Théâtre ) and La Centrale/ Powerhouse Gallery Montreal, Tupada’05, Tama’06 and Tutok’08 festivals  Manila, Jogja National Museum and Performance Klub Jogjakarta, 798 Art Zone Open Art Beijing , Hangar Visual Arts Center Barcelona. Other venues : Generali Foundation Vienna, Kapelica Gallery Ljubljana, Music Gallery and 7 *11 Festival Toronto, RIAP Quebec City, Trasforma Torres de Vedra, Centro em Movimento Lisbon,  Biennale di Venezia in Budapest, Podwil and Tacheless Arts Centers Berlin. 

Two major projects in Cairo (Water Monument - a floating video installation on river Nile and Dust Monument - a video installation that incorporated self-shot performances with dust in the abandoned Palace of the Grand Vizier Said Halim Pasha in Cairo) have inspired the Mobile Monuments series. The works travel from city to city as  “open sequences”. They are modular, large-scale projections, immersed in various architectural and natural environments. The specificity of each installation leads to dynamic dialogues between the virtual and the physical components. A second series entitled “Performing Sites" consists of two long term projects : The Star Ferry project in Hong Kong and Del otro lado in Barcelona. In a recent return to drawing and painting, Ioana has produced a new body of works on paper, from large to small scales.
