Anca Benera reveals unseen London

30/11 - 04/12/2011 @ Camden Arts Centre, Arkwright Road, Londra NW3 6DG

Join us for the opening of Anca Benera's exhibition revealing London's lost rivers, latent social tensions and hidden codes of behaviour.  The works on display have been made during  the artist's joint residency at Camden Arts Centre and the Romanian Cultural Institute. 

Benera’s work incorporates a range of media including video, performance and sculpture; her practice focuses on story telling, re-construction, performance and in particular, how these things can occur in the public sphere. For her residency, she is developing a research project begun in 2008, re-reading sculptural occurrences and interventions in the public domain as reminiscent of key art works from art history. In London, the new body of work comprises photographs, film and narrative transcriptions.

Anca Benera (b. 1977) is the co-founder of the Centre for Visual Introspection, a unique artists’ collective in Bucharest in 2007, for the support and presentation of socially engaged visual arts. She graduated from the National University of Art Bucharest. Most of her works focus on the interaction between painting, photography, installations and the memory’s structure. Her on-going projects include Re-reading the City (2008-) and Matter & History (2010-).

When: Opening 30 November, 7 - 9pm; Exhibition continues until 4 December, 10am - 6pm

Where: Camden Arts Centre, Arkwright Road, London NW3 6DG
