Hortensia Mi Kafchin is known for her complex, surreal figurative paintings. In 2010, she graduated from the University of Art and Design in Cluj, where she specialised in pottery, glass and metal. Working with a broad range of media from drawing and painting to sculpture and installation, Kafchin immerses her viewer into dystopian and sensual scenarios backed by mythological and historical themes that invite us to question readings of the past and of the present. The Romanian artist has had solo and group shows at major institutions such as the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Bucharest, Romania; the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna, Austria; the Espace Cultural Louis Vuitton in Paris, France; the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, France; the New Museum in New York, the United States of America; the Centre for Contemporary Art in Warsaw, Poland; the MuMoK Museum Moderner Kunst in Vienna, Austria and the Kunsthalle Budapest in Budapest, Hungary. She participated in the 2013 Prague Biennale, Czech Republic and La Triennale in Paris in 2012, France and is collected by renowned private and public collections such as the Art Collection Telekom Centre, Germany; Centre National d’Art et de Culture Georges-Pompidou in Paris, France.
