Irena Jurca is a visual artist who works predominantly with photography. Her work explores the relationship between an intimate experience of the world and internal social reality. She focuses on topics that consider the experience of life, as well as various existential questions about meaning and essence, transiency and understanding of social reality. She is interested in how the visual images transmit ideas, internal experience, unconsciousness, and reality, an how they influence our understanding of the word we live in.
The conceptual series of photographs ‘Sea in me’ revolves around notions of self-reflection, mortality, and migration. By using the symbolic imaginary of sea, dead sea creatures, and withered plants, the artist explores connections between life, searching for the meaning of life and death, with the intention to create the unique language of symbolism that asks for reflection; what becomes our individual and what collective memory.
