Liz Xi: a platform for art and criticism

Larisa Crunțeanu


Larisa Crunțeanu is an interdisciplinary artist working between research and speculation. She is also an independent curator living in Bucharest, where she runs the influential project space Atelier 35 together with Xandra Popescu. Crunțeanu studied Photography and Moving Image and is a current PhD candidate at the National University of Arts, Bucharest.

Her practice as performer, video artist and sound collector moves from reality to fiction in an endless conversation with the viewer. Crunțeanu’s works create contexts in which facts and memories are reactivated, encouraging a shared effort and the emergence of new practices. Many of her projects reflect on the notion of collaboration and the ideas existing behind objects and stories.

Crunțeanu has exhibited throughout Europe and has performed for institutions such as the Venice Biennale and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Her works are held by the Romanian National Museum of Contemporary Art (MNAC).
