Alexandra Pirici

Girl Folding a Handkerchief

Alexandra Pirici (*1982 in Bucharest, lives in Bucharest) works in museum contexts, theatrical frameworks, and public space. She choreographs ongoing actions, performative monuments, and environments that fuse dance, sculpture, spoken word, and music. Her works deal with monumentality and the history of specific places and institutions in order to playfully tackle and transform existing hierarchies. In these contexts, her performative artworks take up specific gestures or questions about the body, its presence, absence, or image.
