Cristian Anutoiu is a transdisciplinary artist from Romania/Germany. Their practice negotiates concepts, fictions and contingencies between physical and digital realities. Reflecting from a queer background, the visual language crystallizes a fragmented world injected with a gentle magical realism. In this process, cross-realities become crucible for transporting ideas into a tangible reality and for expressing themselves through installative narratives. Constant experimentation with 3D software creates virtual worlds, installations that span time and space, and implicitly post-digital paintings. The artificial is juxtaposed with the organic to express fragility and opposition of human subjectivity and normativity. Through reinterpretations, 3D scans and kitsch, Anutoiu’s practice moves between post-modern mysticism and digital magic. In addition to studying Painting & Animation Film at the University of Applied Arts Vienna under Judith Eisler, Anutoiu is a founding member of the artist collective room69, which mediates contemporary intermedia formats through progressive exhibition formats. She currently lives and works in Vienna, Austria.
Cristian Anutoiu will be part of the CIVA tour on 2 June 2022.
