I am Katarína Máliková a visual artist and scenographer. I am focusing on the topic of the performative qualities of silence, a silent space and the interaction of spectators in such a created silent environment. My work is characterized by strong and simple visuals what for I am using cheap or found materials. I am seeing myself as an attentive observer that is inspired by our daily life situations. My ideas are developed from examinations of the contrasts in environment we live in and from our reactions towards them.
I am starting to unfold all beneficial aspects of silence and I am intrigued if there are possibilities to heal people through designing of silent spaces. I would like to create unconditional space for healing purposes because we forgot to be silent and we even started to be afraid of it. And I would like to find the way to show that silence has a lot to offer and it will never get old as some technologies do so.
