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 and human overpopulation trying to understand how humans make sense of their surroundings. The human condition between living and being is at its core practice trying to interrogate the dialogue between population density and physical spaces.

Founder of SwitchLab, a contemporary art space based in Bucharest.
