About my artwork
I studied fashion design at high school and later sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, Slovakia; I spent one semester in Video Studio in Czech Republic and one in Painting Studio at school in Bratislava. I continued my studies in Brussels, at Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts. I broadened my experiences on residency stay at the Centre de la Tapisserie in Tournai, Belgium and Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris. All these influences left marks on my approach to art. I combine them to create objects and installations. I work with textile, clothes and other non traditional materials; sometimes I combine them with the very traditional ones, such as plaster, bronze to create tension and contrast.
My works speak about ones existence, problems, he meets, changes that happen everyday, mistakes and excuses, sorrows. I like to mention the problem, to bring it on, so people can see it through my art and think about it. I want people to be more aware, more receptive. I do vulnerable, obscure works, some of them last only for a short while. My pieces can be the everyday objects seen in new way. They are themselves and represent something else at the same time. It is a game, a mystery, hidden message. Not everything we see is like it looks like.
I do installations, site-specific art, objects, actions, usually presented as the photographs, combining painting, sculpture, textile and fashion design.
