Dimensions: Variable

Diana Popa’s work explores the idea of ritual and beliefs. She works with video, scripted performance and photography. Diana often uses objects with strong symbolic associations, such as candles or tarot cards. She also incorporates natural elements, such as fire, water and earth, or organic materials such as apples and lemons. Her work You lit the road for me. I had to leave is an exploration of traditions surrounding death and funerals. Diana’s writing background plays an important role in her process. She writes monologues or short stories for every piece and views her titles as a material element of her work.
