Catinca Tabacaru Gallery Collective

Ovidiu Toader

Ovidiu Toader (b. 1991, Brașov, Romania) is interested in exploring the individual and collective memory, using various forms of recollection of personal or historical experiences. In his artistic practice, he uses the assemblage as a method to juxtapose found, collected, and sometimes recycled objects collected from his travels, the space where he lives in, from his grandparents’ house or from his workshop.
