„Cu propriile mele cuvinte” este un workshop de artă dedicat copiilor și tinerilor cu vârsta cuprinsă între 13 și 17 ani, al cărui scop constă în descoperirea identității personale prin intermediul artei și prin folosirea limbii materne, limba română. Ca parte a acestui proiect, artista Anca Danilă își va aduce contribuția prin prezentarea modului în care anumiți artiști români consacrați au reușit să inspire lumea, precum și influențat pe care a avut-oexperiența lor în calitate de emigranți asupra actului artistic și a artei lor.
By looking at the work of famous Romanian artists, children can learn about their heritage and culture, while expressing their own ideas through art making. How did the life experiences of these Romanian artists inspire their work? Were they influenced by living in a new country, with different cultures? Anca Danila is a visual artist and art teacher with many years of experience working with culturally diverse children and adults.
Born in 1982 in Romania, Anca Danila graduated with a degree and an MFA from the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Her work has been displayed in numerous exhibitions in institutions and galleries around the world.
Through her works, the artist, who regularly travels between Bistrita, Romania and Dublin, demonstrates her interest in anthropology and contemporary sociology. The artist explores transitions between geographical zones and cultural identities. Her creations display the contemporary individual who creates different types of identities for themselves, constructed from social, cultural, or familial factors and the contrast between someone’s real and virtual identity. What they experience and live is, in fact, a continuing renegotiated relationship between the real identity and the constructed ones.
“The words are energy and create realities, it only depends on us how we use them in order to create our own reality” (Anca Danila)
