Romanian born, Berlin based artist Alex Bodea works at the crossroads of visual art, journalism and poetry. Fuelled by a desire to witness and record, she makes use of a language based on drawing and text (written or spoken), both of them stripped down to the essentials. She is mostly interested in documenting aspects of urbanity such as everyday street life, generic passers-by, and the theater and visual arts scene in Berlin and other cities.
She also performs selections from her archive. Her drawings are to be spoken out loud.
Alex Bodea has collaborated with and made visual reports about institutions such as Serralves Foundation (Porto), Institute for Cultural Inquiry, Martin-Gropius-Bau, HAU, Berliner Festspiele (Berlin), Deutsche Oper (Berlin), Deutsches Theater (Berlin) and she has documented moments in the professional life of artists/filmmakers/actors/writers/directors such as Benjamin Verdonck, Salomé Lamas, Ana Moreira, Yevgenia Belorusets, France-Elena Damian, Karl Ove Knausgård (work-in-progress) and opera director Peter Sellars.
