There is a poetic imagery, innocent and charming [...] Cinty Ionescu in a video artist that uncomfortably explores reality and metamorphoses it without aggressiveness and without cosmetics.
Oana Stoica - Dilema Veche, 2013
Interview for Radio Romania Cultural by Robert Balan (in Romanian)
Cinty Ionescu premiered an engaging environment of sound, sight, visual abstraction, that brings you into a series of moments strongly connected to her, and extended to you via the conductive superhighway that is her art.
Kewin Williamson – Studio Pheonix, New York, 2012
Throughout the show, video is used to extraordinarily good effect. The images, words (including surtitles), continual ‘news feed’ that is predicting the end of the world within days (in the first section), and the use of video ‘blood’ for the violence was very effective.
Julia Barclay, Somewhere in Transition, on Nils' Fucked Up Day at the FringeNYC'11, august 2011
Cinty Ionescu's pre-show video design is particularly successful...
Nathaniel Kressen in Nytheatre.com on Nils' Fucked Up Day at the FringeNYC'11, august 2011
An outstanding video design by Cinty Ionescu accompanies the action, presenting a succession of eye-catching images.
Dan Bacalzano in TheaterMania.com on Nils' Fucked Up Day at the FringeNYC'11, august 2011
...smart use of video (a rarer thing than it should be)... The intensity is admirable and often funny, and Cinty's clever video design features porn re-edited to put Coke bottles, uh, front and center. (Your product here! Blech.)
Helen Shaw in Time Out New York on The Concretes in the undergroundzero festival, july 2010
Cinty Ionescu is the most significant presence in the alternative area of Romanian video art. [... ]Cinty Ionescu identifies herself artistically: active and activist, present and conscious. Surprising on camera the social, present(actual), street, urban movements that she transposes later on on in the exciting and almost unconfortable 'visuals' that start serious political polemics at the Brum Conspiracy gigs in various clubs.
Sanda Watt, curator of Gender Zero video anthology (video art works from Eastern Europe) published by La Plic magazine, Chisinau, Republic of Moldavia, 2010.
Brum Conspiracy, an experimental project, is atemporal by excellency. The athmosphere is at least by half created by Cinty who's visual projects run, as well, between experimental, anti-consumerism and artistic.
Iris Opris, Time Out Bucharest, march 2009
Brum Conspiracy’s (sound combines dub, post-punk and no-wave experimentalism, while) their live shows throw carrefully synchronised visuals into the mix, creating a real audio-visual ‘happening’. They’re probably the most exciting Romanian band around at the moment.
Tom Wilson - 100 to watch - Directory of Contemporary Romanian Artists, October 2009
Cinty Ionescu is an idependent video artist active in the underground music scene of Bucharest. The visual representations she operates, sometimes as interventions in the public space or shows and installations (Brum Conspiracy, Eclectique Telescope) reflect the artist's strong social engagement. She doesn't miss any occasion of taxing the modern obsessions for brands, corporations and malls. Her activism isn't aggressive, rather constructive.
