Marta Vovk

Marta Vovk, *1989 in Lviv, UA, lives and works in Berlin, DE. Her artistic practice moves between autobiographical fragments, tenors of sensitivity and a sociocultural touch. Pop-cultural elements go hand in hand with existential questions of the modern, challenged Self. This creates an associative interplay between banality and pathos, self-optimizing performance and anxiety, infantile web culture with its cute kittens and major depression. Figures, symbols, advertising items, typos and slogans – each with their distinct messages and network of meanings – emerge simultaneously. Their specific inter-relatedness, however, remains questionable.
