Inhaltsangabe zu "Katja Novitskova: Ringier 2017"
Berlin-based installation artist Katja Novitskova (b. Tallinn, Estonia, 1984) is searching for areas where humans, machines, and the environment intersect. Her work focuses on issues of technology, evolutionary processes, digital imagery, and corporate aesthetics. She considers the nonhuman intelligence of animals as a model for artificial intelligence (AI). She scans our chaotic reality for meaningful patterns as if she were a biological search engine. She is not concerned with explaining the now, but with capturing the present in time capsules for the future.
In this artist’s book closely conceived with Berlin-based graphic design PWR Studio to be the 2017 Ringier annual report, and featuring a conversation between Katja Novitskova and Peter Hossli, she opens her on-going archive of digital images and thematic interests making clear the ways she is experimenting with images. “I need to manipulate images to be allowed to use them. I fictionalize everything. It’s not fake news, but an interpretation. The images I use stand for themselves—and they are a product of our time. The image itself is already an artifact that needs attention. I try to encapsulate its reality.”
Graduated in semiotics, cultural studies, science in digital media, Katja Novitskova’s work has recently been exhibited at the K11 Foundation, Shanghai (2017), the ZKM in Karlsruhe (2017), the Kunstverein Hamburg (2016), the Kunsthalle Lissabon in Lisbon (2015), and has been part of the New York City Public Art Fund program (2017). She was in residency at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Amsterdam in 2013–2014, and she represented Estonia at the 57th Venice Biennale in 2017.
