Irina Gheorghe works primarily with performance, in combination with drawing, installation or video, to address the tensions which appear when art aims to speak about things which are beyond our possibilities of observation, from extraterrestrial life to hypothetical planets. Her recent work explores the notion of deviation as a technique of estranging the everyday. Irina also works with Alina Popa as part of the artist duo The Bureau of Melodramatic Research to investigate how passions shape contemporary society. Her work was presented at Changing Room Berlin, Zona Sztuki Aktualnej Szczecin, Centre Culturel Irlandais Paris, CCA Derry, Chapter Thirteen / Glasgow International, Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, HOME Manchester, Salonul de Proiecte Bucharest, CAC Vilnius, TRAFO Budapest, Savvy Contemporary Berlin, Pratt Manhattan Gallery New York, Times Museum Guangzhou, MNAC Bucharest, Skolska 28 Prague, BAK Utrecht, DEPO Istanbul, Galeria Posibila Bucharest, etc. Irina is currently a PhD in practice candidate at GradCAM, supported by the Technological University Dublin.
