"My practice focuses on womanhood and human relationships as experienced in private as well as in public life, touching upon topics like power, family, romantic love and history. I like to explore the meaning that we ascribe to words and objects and how it reveals our cultural values and metaphysical beliefs.
I construct new objects that imitate possessions from a personal or collective past as well as objects from certain cultural backgrounds. I do this in order to modify the meaning of the items that hold value. By recreating them from scratch, I can explore their emotional impact; I can transform abstract, often uncontrollable sensations of memory into finite objects." by Ioana Sisea
