About The Event

In 2018 Bianca Mann was awarded UAP’s "Youth Award".
Don’t miss the premiere on our Facebook, IGTV and YouTube on May 21 at 2 p.m. New York & Toronto time / 11 a.m. Los Angeles & Vancouver time / 9 p.m. Bucharest time. Watch also on our website and other social media accounts anytime later.
Bianca's work is developed around the mask seen as a metaphor of identity as well as an opportunity to analyze the perception of images as a way to mold one’s personality. In fact, the first mask moldings were made of her own face and were later altered into other forms.
Recently, Bianca has moved to a new studio that opens new possibilities in terms of the scale of her future works. There she molds her own universe, almost like a ritual, creating a magical connection with the materials and impressing its multiple facets onto her sculptures.
