Pavel Brăila lives and works in Chișinău and Berlin. He is an internationally renowned figure and has contributed to Documenta (2002 and 2017) and other festivals such as Manifesta 10. Since the mid-1990s his works have been shown in numerous international group and solo exhibitions.

Braila’s practice covers a wide range of media, often drawing inspiration from his home country Moldovia. The transformation and modernization process that Moldova is still undergoing, especially in the last years which has been extremely difficult. In films, installations, photographs and performances, the artist explores the complex geopolitical situation of a country on the “periphery of the centre” in Europe.
