LUCIA GHEGU

b. 1990,  Zimnicea, Romania

Lucia Ghegu studied engineering, fine arts and industrial design, but drawing has always been an important part of her work. She chooses drawing as a solution against the hyper-technological trend, being an immediate, spontaneous reaction, a quick note, through which she can understand the relations between her and the outside world.

In recent years, Lucia's artistic practice has developed in the area of ​​object design. She builds objects which respect the rules of aesthetics, but whose functionality is questionable. Her works are characterized by a dual nature, by the coexistence of opposite principles, of darkness and light, of functionality and uselessness.

In addition to the impossibility of fulfilling the basic function or the uselessness, concepts such as belonging, alienation, community, and migration appear recurrently in her works. Lucia Ghegu frequently builds imaginary houses, cages, portraits of family members, and self-representations. Her personal history has marked her artistic practice so that her works offer an introspective and radical vision of her relationship with family, home, human interactions, and spaces.
