Cristina David

b. 1979, Romania
Lives and works in Bucharest

Cristina David’s artistic practice employs photography and video as main means of expression and documenting the artist’s personal and peculiar view on the world, herself and the passing of time. Her projects bring forth more than often text, performance, objects and installations with a playful and ironic, overall conceptual twist. With a MFA from the Art Academy Of Bergen, Norway, Cristina David was engaged in various artistic residencies, in Seydisfjordur, Iceland (2015), Vienna, Austria (2014), Santa Monica, California (2012), Bratislava, Slovakia (2011), etc. Her works have been shown in the “The School of Kyiv”, Kyiv Biennial 2015, in exhibitions at Kunsthalle Winterthur (2015), The National Museum of Contemporary Art (Bucharest, 2014 and 2013), The University of California Irvine University Art Gallery/Room (Los Angeles, 2013), Futura Gallery (Prague, 2013), Shedhalle (Zurich, 2011), in Manifesta8 (Murcia, Cartagena, 2010), Museum of Contemporary Art of Finland (Helsinki, 2006). In 2011 she was awarded the Henkel Art Award (Romania) and in 2006 she won the First Prize at the Alternative Film/Video (Belgrade). Ivan Gallery hosted her latest solo show between January - February 2016 and launched her ongoing performative project "Nulla dies sine linea" at Sunday Art Fair London 2018 .
