  5. 5. I was born an artist and I will die an artist. I can never think or behave likeother humans because I am different.I search for the truth. I feel that the essence is in simplicity, in life itself. Thepresence of the inner anxiety is the proof of the life. A human body is made offlesh and blood but is fed with meat. The whole existence on Earth is apermanent contradiction betwen good and bad, right and wrong. The mortalshave a fascination for buying many little things; they just forgot to buy theirown death.Outside it´s raining. I am full of mud. I live in such an up side down ThirdWorld! Just because of one and two came to life the three! Humans eatanimal meat but also other humans. There are more ways of eating a humanthan an animal. This is the cruel truth about existence on Earth! 5
  6. 6. ESSEL AWARD 09, AustriaJury StatementConstantly confronting two options, Violeta Ionita tries to make the rightdecision as a youngster, based on personal beliefs and critical attitudes. Herworks emphasize the politics that accelerate the decline of the educationsystem in Romania.The artist is situated ‘in between’, a space of duality, of connections linkinginside and outside, the opposition of superficiality and human essence.Her works also follow this concept. Even though she uses two separatetechniques – video and video installations -- they can be seen as one, as awhole.The viewer’s perception of the artworks can differ, as between static images,moving images and film.The artist tries to define herself and to define personal identity as a social self,in a continuous comparison with someone else. The double relation(inside/outside, self/someone else) tears apart the certainty of reality.“Antinomy’s ubiquity” even becomes the antithesis. The artist is convincedthat art has the ability to bring us closer to our own human essence, to give usback our human condition. It is a salvation, a desalination process, part of amechanism in an institutionalized, dehumanized social context.The jury appreciated most of all the freshness of these concepts, which mightotherwise be considered as verging on the banal. 6

Work 1: UNTOLDYear: 2010Technique: VideoSize: 15’Apparently common daily life sequences are interrupted by life drama;The silence is broken by a sudden death, by a scream or by an existentialcrisis.

  19. 19. Work 5: TerminusYear: 2008Technique: VideoSize: 5’ 06”I am talking about alienation and individualism. During the film I present a symbolic run ofindustrialization, mechanization and superficiality to avoid a life as a print. I try to show two possibilities:accepting to be a “canned food human” or running for a better life for keeping the spirituality andessence alive. The film obtained SECOND PRIZE ESSEL AWARD ’09. 19
  20. 20. Work 6: 15 minutes of confusionYear: 2008Technique: VideoSize: 11’It’s about the deterioration of the educational system in Romania and politics thatencourages this phenomenon.

I stuck these photographs on real empty canned food boxesto show, in a metaphorical way, what people reached to be thanks to a wrongand cold system.The film emphasizes in a cynical mood the nowadays youth confusion.

I wanted to convince the people how great it feels to be you!At that time I also was seriously thinking of the power that is given by an openand free mind.

It’s also about playing and childhood.The film was displayed at “Be Abroad” exhibition, in Belgium. 33
