Oana Maria Pop (b. 1989) is a Romanian mixed media artist working with oil and acrylic on canvas, industrial silicone and photography. Her practice entails depictions of the neighbourhoods she grew up in and other environs that made an impression on her. The protagonist within the spaces she documents is the human form and its marks left by particular extrinsic experiences. In the past few years, Oana’s work centred around the study of the representation of women in arts and society and the criticism of upholding rape myths, domestic violence and other forms of abuse against women and young girls.
About the project
For Fresh A.I.R., Oana is analysing the written use of language when reporting on abuse against women in Berlin and how the vocabulary of those with social and institutional power becomes the language of consequence. By means of interviews, the artist researches the aspects of safety for women in the city and the effects media terminology has on them.
