Floriama Cândea (b. 1984) graduated from the National University of Arts in 2007 with a degree in painting, and got her Master’s Degree in the Theory and Practice of Image at CESI (The Centre for Excellence in Image Studies). Her artistic practice includes several methods and techniques. Generally, both her concepts and her work processes use the aesthetics of scientific imagery and other scientific research tools which can be converted into artistic practice – decellularization, the production of biocompatible materials, and chemical processes. Her works question the way in which memory, cognition, perception and taxonomy are triggered as mechanisms in the subjective relationship between mankind and the natural world, between reality and fiction.
