Cristiana Cott Negoescu
Born: 24.07.1991 in Bucharest, Romania
Living and working in Düsseldorf, Germany
I am a multimedia artist, or better said, a conceptographer. My main point of focus is performance art, followed by video and photography.
I concentrate my attention on social-political-spiritual matters, giving them a context in live or recorded actions. Through these artistic actions, I give examples of pondering concerns that I have experienced directly, or through other people.
