Liliana Mercioiu Popa (born 1975; lives and works in Timisoara, RO) has a constant preoccupation with the use of text in the creative endeavour, in a manner of conceptual influence. This has been visible since the beginning of her career in the late 90s and over the course of time has completed the other forms of expression employed by the artist: painting, drawing, installation and photography. Liliana Mercioiu’s interests are nuanced through her personal view of the macro- and micro-historical contexts. Her own becoming in relation to the development of the world, the historical evolution of the social and cultural climate in which the artist lives her everyday life, the balance of forces and determinations that create the identity of a community, of a social group or of an individual, all these are recurrent aspects in her art.
