Dani Gherca belongs to the emerging generation of Romanian visual artists who share an interest in linking documentary photography with conceptual approaches.
Starting with his early practice he developed an interest in the idea of agglomeration trying to understand how humans make sense of their surroundings. Human condition between living and being is at its core practice trying to interrogate the dialogue between human density and physical spaces.
Recently he started to be interested in mixing classic mediums like photography and sound with new visual technologies like Virtual Reality. His current research is focussed on questioning the protest theme with a specific view on the physical presence in opposition with virtual presence.
Founder of SwitchLab, contemporary art space based in Bucharest.
