Ana-Maria Hadji-Culea

Funen Art Academy has invited Ana-Maria Hadji-Culea to Odense to do a six weeks residency from February to end of March. We are thrilled to be welcoming Ana-Maria Hadji-Culea, who besides her work at FAA will to do a public reading at Brandts 13 on Thursday March 19 from 7-9 pm.

With a background in curating, Hadji-Culea was based in Berlin between 2006 – 2011, where she worked as a freelancer with one-on-one projects such as Facehug, annual text pieces using varying formats and distribution channels to think, test and show text, as well as interventions. Since then, her practice has taken an interest in situational aspects of writing, where performative and textual elements are combined, using a situation or a question as a starting point for a thought process that is noted and reinterpreted or staged using body, set and props. In her presentation at Brandts’ Ana-Maria Hadji-Culea will test a new reading of notations linked to recent performances in two acts and an intermission.

Her work has been exhibited at Signal, Malmö (2013), in the garden of Mr. and Mrs. Chow, Penang (2013) and Schneeeule, Berlin (2012). Her curatorial work has been shown at Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2013), Künstlerhaus Stuttgart (2010) and the New Museum, New York (2009). She received an MFA from the Critical and Pedagogical Studies at Malmö Art Academy and has worked with students at Ærø Folkehøjskole (2014) and Prosjektskolen Oslo (2012).

Ana-Maria Hadji-Culea’s presentation at Brandts 13 is part of a series of events, curated by Funen Art Academy and planned in collaboration with Brandts Museum. The events, which all take place at Jernbanegade are open to the public and free of charge.
