Elena-Andreea Teleaga is a lens-based media artist whose work is rooted in photography. Using found material or own imagery, her work ends up in creating uncanny spaces for reflection, introspection and self-analysis. She has recently graduated from a Masters course at Slade School of Fine Art, having received the Sarabande: the Lee Alexander McQueen full scholarship, chosen by Matthew Slotover.
