Projectinfo

Michal Moravčík (1974) is an installation artist based in Bratislava. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava and Prague. He is the university teacher and visual art editor, too. Concerning his work, he often employs and recycles the so-called socialistic aesthetics, in search for it´s new role in a changed social context. He paraphrases or to a certain degree reconstructs the socialistic pop-culture, doing so by means of quotations or direct manipulations of ready-mades from period of real socialism. He is creating installations and environments with political and emotional - nostalgic dimensions, often researches phenomenon of nationalism, social equality and exterritoriality in a region of Central Europe, or with regard to the political hegemonies in global context. In search for diverse interpretations of Open Society, he focuses on social relations and interactions between active space vs. visitor creating new context of the work of art.
