During her residence, Nicoleta Moise (°1989, Bucharest) continues her research into the National Women’s Union of Gorj, which in 1935 commissioned Brancusi to create a monument to commemorate the 8,500 soldiers who fell at the Targu Jiu front in 1916. The union was resurrected in 1992 according to the same founding principles: equal opportunities for work, family, community, without ethnic of religious discrimination.
Nicoleta Moise works with photography and video. Her work is interdisciplinary and often combines visual art with performance. She starts out from archive images and studies the position of the female body in diverse socio-political contexts.
