Evelina Rajca

Disciplines: Installatiekunstenaar, Mediakunstenaar, Mixed media/interdisciplinair kunstenaar

Omschrijving werk

Evelina Rajca's practice is based in between intuitive embodied knowledge and systems that construct processes of documenting these experiences, translating them into interventions, objects, maps and scores. She uses old and new technologies as working materials in an ever-changing process. Her performative explorations in the form of collaborations, sculptures and interventions in public space stimulate the question of who inhabits that space under constant transformation. The hypothesis that the motivation to act is carried out by reward systems and that these systems rely (like almost every system of mammals) on sleep is as important for her field studies as the assumption that collective imaginations, dreams, values and fears, as more or less socially unredeemed, are enrolled as forceful imaginary reality in public and private spaces and what is left over of a reformulation of nature.
