Born in Radauti, Romania.

Works in London, U.K.

Elena-Andreea Teleaga is a lens based media artist who uses different forms of visual art, especially analog photography, photo-montages and collages to explore the relationship between experience, space and existance. Being born in a former communist country, Romania, her background is inevitably visible in the body of work which questions the historical past and the present socio-political context. She delves into the experimental side of photography, the one that does not follow any precise rules. The unexpected outcome gives birth to new approaches of this medium.
