Oana Clitan

Oana Clitan’s multidisciplinary work investigates topics related to technology, media and communication.

Using worldbuilding and experimental narratives, she builds fantastical scenarios which explore how technology materializes as part of power structures and how it influences both public and private spaces.

She often repurposes and remixes existing content, whether it's contemporary imagery sourced from the internet or archival materials, weaving a web of pop-culture references. Her work blends and contrasts different mediums in order to highlight the stark contrasts of how we engage with the digital world. Her projects range from multi-screen installations to textiles, digital drawings and AI-generated videos.



Oana Clitan was born in Romania and since 2014 has been based in Rotterdam.
Her work has been exhibited in solo shows at White Cuib and Visual Kontakt gallery in Cluj-Napoca, Romania and group shows at Ars Electronica festival (Linz, Austria), Het Nieuwe Instituut (Rotterdam, NL), Dutch Design Week / Van Abbemuseum (Eindhoven, NL), Rijksmuseum Twenthe (Enschede, NL), V2_ Lab for Unstable Media (Rotterdam, NL), Technische Sammlungen (Dresden, DE), Gallery Ursula Walter (Dresden, DE).

Her work has been supported by CBK Rotterdam, Stimuleringsfonds, Amarte Fonds, Goethe Instituut, Stichting Droom en Daad and Romanian Cultural Institute New York. Two of her works are in the collection of the Dutch Government.
