Bio:

  • I closely follow the ideas of metamodernism – a term, which was introduced in 2010 by the Dutch scientists Timotheus Vermeulen and Robin van den Akker. Metamodernism represents a mediation between aspects of modernism and postmodernism. It denotes a movement between opposite poles of modern culture, e.g. hope and melancholy, sincerity and irony, affect and apathy, technology and techne.

    My current project “Ambiguity: identity in the virtual space” represents an artistic research into the phenomenon of virtual identity. The appearance of digital technologies led to the development of virtual social relationships thanks to the popularity of communication via social networking websites. In my research I investigate the influence it makes on the individual’s personality: where lies the line between real “me” and virtual “me”? And is it there at all?

    As a whole, my artistic practice is an equal combination of perceptive and conceptual. Regarding the technical part, it is a demanding and a complicated construction of figurative images using digital photography, photo manipulation and 3D graphics.

    I give photos a chance to be percepted in a totally new and unknown way. In my opinion, digital photo hides its own universe: what is seen in the photo is not something that an artist should submit to, but merely a material which can be bound to his will.
