Claudiu Cobilanschi (1972) works at the blurry boundary between art and media, using, as journalist, multiple mediums for different kinds of expression and, as an artist, the benefit of these media’s mutual conflict. In his practice, he approaches issues of stereotypical thinking, forecasting and physicality through photography, performance, super8 cinema, studies of expressiveness, video-documents and interactive movies. Among others, he has been working with: ParadisGaraj & Die Kunsthalle Bucharest, Platforma & Salonul de Proiecte Anexa MNAC Bucharest, Barbara Seiler Gallery Zürich, Kunsthalle Winterthur, DEPO Instanbul, Rotwand Gallery Zürich, MuseumsQuartier Vienna, IG BILDENDE KUNST Vienna, Nida Art Colony Lithuania, HBK Saar Saarbrücken, Romanian Cultural Institute, Motorenhalle Dresden, Kunsthalle Krems.
