Working with film, photography and installation, Diana Vidrascu questions the narrative devices of cinema by challenging the limits of the visual discourse and codes of the film genre. The storytelling in her work is characterized by interruptions in the logic flow of events, creating parallels with the fragility of memory, the personal perception of time, and the visual paradigms through which reality is perceived, represented and altered. Her work often reveals a meditation on language, on all things that get lost in translation. Exploring the personal geographies of the characters she’s portraying, her research resembles that of a film-geologist working with mythologies of a faraway desert island.
