Past Resident2011: Foundation for a Civil Society
Petra Feriancova’s work conceptualises her own emotional reactions to the processes of perception and memory and examines the conditions of their sharing. Feriancova works mostly with found pictures, texts and archives which she interprets and methodically interchanges. Her primary aim in the manipulation of a reference, pictorial or discursive, is to provide the spectator with an original affective reaction to it.
Petra Feriancova (born 1977 in Bratislava, Slovakia) currently lives and works in Bratislava. She studied at L’Accademia delle Belle Arti, Rome, Italy and Academy of Fine Arts and Design, Bratislava, Slovakia. Her works have been exhibited extensively including at the Secession Museum, Vienna, Austria, 2010; Eastside Projects, Birmingham, UK, 2009; HIT gallery, Bratislava, Slovakia; 2009; and Musee d’Art Moderne de Saint-Etienne, France; 2008. She is the winner of the 2010 Oskár Čepan Award.
