Laura A Dima (1991, Romania) is a multidisciplinary artist based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. After graduating from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in 2015, Laura A Dima has been interested in how altered spaces can manipulate people in the audience.
Utilising the language of contemporary performance art, she develops virtual bodies and identities, reimagining figures from popular or artistic culture through design, clothes and surroundings. Fetishism is a binding concept through her work, as well as the desire to explore how emotions are transferred through lifeless matter.
Through her installations and performances, the artist provokes questions about belonging, archetypes and morals; and invites the audience to rethink concepts of love, identity, group behaviour and privacy.
Inspired by how context changes human behaviour, her oeuvre explores cultural norms around touch as a catalyst for introspection and questioning of our own behaviour and attitudes.
