My name is Elena Ioniță (born in 1997), I am a student in the 3rd (and final) year of the bachelor program from the Faculty of Visual Arts and Design of the National University of Arts "George Enescu" from Iasi, Romania, studying Photography-Video, computer image processing. I have participated in collective and personal exhibitions like "I'll be back?!" (2017), "Video.2 / At the edge of simple things" (2018) and "Other than yourself" (2018).
Healing 1 & Healing 2 are about the process of the way I am dealing with my body's pain, but are also a representation of the way I (a shy woman and an artist) am expressing my inner struggles. It's a way of coming clean with myself and acknowledge the problems I have as a woman and the struggles of being a shy artist, not at all a courageous one, in a world where fragility and femininity are anything but advantages.
