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 subjects such as the relationship between experience, space and existance. Being born in a former communist country, Romania, her body of work reflects on the historical past and on the present socio-political context. She is exploring the experimental side of photography, the one that does not follow any precise rules, where the results are unexpectedly beautiful and which give birth to new approaches of this medium. The main focus in the current practice is the destruction of the photographic material and the power of the controlled accident in image making.
