Radu Cioca

Art should challenge you.
I am searching to create moments where things click.
My practice is idea based.
The main target of my work is to create a state of self-awareness in which the mystification of our reality is unveiled, thus raising questions and revealing relative ’truths’. My strategy is to interrogate the given reality through a series of connections.
For the time being, I'm interested in materializing concepts that are very difficult to put into words and in exploring significant everyday details that have the power to change the big picture. I try to work mainly with ideas that are of general concern, despite one's political or social affiliation; matters that resonate with anyone.
Each concept dictates its own way of revealing itself, so the means of expression are determined by this. So far, in my art practice I have experimented with various approaches, using sculpture, installation, drawing, photography, video, computer animation or digital generated images.
I'm preoccupied with finding relevant ideas that take form in a spectacular and aesthetic manner.
