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.
