Ioana Sisea (born 1988) is a Romanian artist working across varied media. Her work explores contemporary issues such a social perceptions of the body, relationships, family, love and memory, always using her personal experience and cultural background as its starting point. She often objectifies specific elements of a memory or interaction, removing them from their original context and the unchallenged prejudices that it may have permitted. Sisea is largely medium agnostic and adopts whatever mode of expression best suits the conceptual basis of each work.
Sisea received her bachelors and masters degree in Fine Arts from the National University of Art Bucharest and HS voor de Kunsten in Utrecht Holland 2008 - 2012 where she focused on drawing. Since then her work has ventured into sculpture, installation, ceramics and film although she has recently returned to drawing again with works in oil bar. She has shown work in solo and group shows in London, Amsterdam, Venice and Bucharest.
