Lectures and dialogue with the audience

Marilena Preda Sânc

Thinking with / for nature means rethinking the human-nature relationship in the contemporary society. The pollution of the environment and the deterioration of the quality of life, due to exaggerated consumerism and aggressive economic / military geopolitics, have led many artists to create Eco Art works centered on the human-nature relation – home / city, as a place of living, thus contributing to the awareness of the need for a responsible human interaction with the environment and to the modeling of a moral spiritual living space.

Marilena Preda Sanc is an interdisciplinary artist, Professor at National University of Arts in Bucharest. From 1980 her work has been presented internationally at museums, festivals, conferences, symposiums, broadcast venues and galleries.

Integrating the traditional forms of art and the new media arts, her art works visualize and investigate the body / mind / soul / behavior in relation to nature and social / political and representational space. Her art work explores the feminism problematic as gender / ageism and woman as leader in an eco-feminism key.

She exhibited her art work in many national and international exhibitions, festivals and took part in residencies (Kulturkontakt Vienna, Franklin Furnace, N.Y.). Her videos, paintings, drawings, installations, interventions on photography are in museums or private collections such as: The National Museum of Contemporary Art, Bucharest MNAC; Arhitekturni Muzej Ljubljana; Kunsthalle, Nürnberg; Albertina Art Collections, Vienna.
