Diana Gheorghiu

Artist exploring the self care, new food and wellness industries.

I am a Romanian artist living in the Netherlands. My work offers a critique on the wellness industries and the pressure on the individual that these establish. I make images, videos and installations of computer generated characters, almost always females, whose bodies can contort, deform and perform. Their mirrored images reflect a form of personhood that has subsumed the body to a regime of controls in the face of an uncertain world. The self care habits implemented by my characters serve to optimise other aspects of their lives.
