CATINCA MALAIMARE (b. 1996, Bucharest, Romania)

Catinca Malaimare is a London-based Romanian artist and current postgraduate student at The Royal Academy of Arts. Performing alongside anthropomorphised technologies, Malaimare’s choreography manifests our intimate relationship with photographic tools and the screens onto which they project our visages.
