Petra FeriancováImagesBio

Petra Feriancová

(b 1977, Bratislava, Slovakia) uses mediums including photography, sculpture and installation while she also creates books. Often working with archives of people closest to her and other materials, she interprets and re-organises them in a non-linear manner in the pursuit of finding alternative structures for how meaning and matter are constructed and perceived.
