aula č. 537
středa 18. ledna od 15 hodin
Artist, writer, performer and teacher Christina Della Giustina is renowned new media and post-conceptual author showing her work internationally. Her work is dwelling in deep personal experience conveyed in images, sound, texts and narratives by the means of sophisticated data-translations, bringing in a fascinating poetical quality.
She is currently a lecturer in Fine Art at HKU University of the Arts Utrecht and enrolled in a practice-led PhD program at Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, London. She studied Philosophy, Art History, and Linguistics at the University of Zurich; and Fine Art and Political Theory at the Jan van Eyck Academy Maastricht. Her trans-disciplinary artistic practice includes site-specific work with live and/or interactive audio-, video-, and light, performance, composition, drawing and writing. She focuses on translating the data from specific sites into artistic notations that are conceived to be interpreted and experienced in the form of a collective enactment of the site. The resulting performance re-creates the site as sensory event and calls for questions that cross disciplines about our ways of being with ourselves and the world or the perception of “the self” together with the site. Her work has been shown on an international level at venues like The Woburn Research Centre, Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin, Soledad Senlle in Amsterdam, Montreux Jazz Festival, Academy Gallery, Utrecht, Netherlands Institute for Media Art NIMK, Shanghai Contemporary Art, the International Art Triennial in Lublin, Poland, Botanical Garden Zürich and Kunsthalle Zürich.
Christina Della Giustina lives and works in Amsterdam.
