Oana Stanciu

Oana Stanciu's practice involves photography and moving image in which she uses herself and different objects to create surreal and subtly distorted self-portraits. As a student, Oana began experimenting with alter-egos and this has informed much of her work since, in which she tries to embody unusual characters and creatures that question the viewer’s expectations. Her work features black-and-white photographs, sometimes accompanied by videos to help bring these characters to life. In 2019 while on a residency funded by the Royal Scottish Academy, she began experimenting with sculpture and ceramics, building specific objects and costumes to use in her work.
