Raluca Croitoru (b.1989) is a visual artist and performer from Constanța (RO), currently based in Rotterdam (NL). Croitoru uses a multidisciplinary approach that coalesces elements from fine art, choreography and performance. Her practice focuses on embodiment and the interplay of the ambivalent states of activity and rest in everyday work and leisure environments. Croitoru works with live performances, installations and videos.

Croitoru followed the MA program at Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam and the BA program at National University of Arts in Bucharest. Her works have been performed and exhibited at TBA Performance Festival, Portland (USA), Art in General, NYC (USA), Skånes Konstförening, Malmö (SE), Playground Performance Festival, Leuven (BE) and Art Encounters Biennial, Timișoara (RO). 

She was one of the co-founders of ONONO project space (2016 - 2019).
