I am Katarína Máliková, a visual designer and scenographer from Slovakia, based in the Netherlands. In my artistic practise I am preocuppied by the topic of silence, silent space and interaction of spectators in such a created silent environment. My work is characterized by simple visuals what for I am using cheap or found materials. My ideas are developed from examinations of the contrasts in environment we live in and from our reactions towards them. Our behavior and feelings are influenced by space more than we are willing to admit. And therefore I am interested in finding the clue how to create such a space where people could arrive to their inner journey.
I created blondeye in need to define my own space for audio-visual-spatial experiments. This fluid platform represents playground, place for collaboration and discourse.
