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 on 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. The focus in the current practice lays in the destruction of the photographic material along with the power of the controlled accident in image making.
