Weikendorf I


(in plastic bag together with Weikendor II) 

The inhabitants of Weikendorf are the main audience, they pass by every day. At once I get an idea to work with people, almost all of whom designed, built and take care of their homes. They all chose the space they live in, they keep it up and improve it. The presence of the gallery space must have some significance for them and perhaps if their own works were on display, they would view the white cube with pride and joy. since I did not know much about Weikendorf before, I thought about asking people to help me get to know by sharing and experiences and knowledge about their town. I would ask them to choose and photograph something they created, something they are proud of, for instance they house, harvest, home-cooked meals or baked goods, even their families and let me exhibit their photographs. The photographs would be split into genres (still life, portrait, landscape, etc.) or even better into categories (the people their work, their hobby, their flowers and trees, their houses, their animals, etc.)

About author:

Petra Feriancova, born in Bratislava (former czechoslovakia in 77), works with the intention of post-production. The key moment of her work is the conceptualisation of her own emotional reactions to the processes of perception and memory, as well as an examination of the conditions under which they are shared. She works mostly with already made images, texts and archives, which she then interprets and methodically interchanges. The main aim of manipulating a reference - pictorial or discursive - is to provide the spectator with the original affective reaction to it. www.petraferiancova.com
