Slovenian Multi-media Artist
21.10.2019 - 27.10.2019
Multimedia artist Ana Brumat (SL) was a participant in SomoS’ group exhibition Un_Real Desires. Her artistic research focuses on the analysis of micro and macro dimensions and their prime universal patterns. Through incorporating sound, video and image manipulation the artist aims to discover the underlying structural tension of our reality by reproducing subtle and invisible realms. By focusing on these seemingly imperceptible dimensions, Burmat is able to represent them in a language perceivable to human senses.
Her film The Pursuit of Anomalous Mind Habitats, explores the human body and mind’s desire to transform in order to experience and sense differently. As the human body is not always able to perform the actions demanded by the intellect, the film focuses on the adaption of the mind to unexpected environments, and the attempt of our intelligence to expand, mutate and change its home. The viewer is invited to expand their own mind and contemplate their desire to cross the boundaries of the human body in order to extend the possibilities of sensing.
Ana graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia in 2017, where she explored a number of mediums including printmaking, painting and multimedia. Afterwards she moved to Berlin and formed the experimental multimedia project ‘‘mraak’’ with the AV artist and musician XMTR. She is currently studying an MA in Fine Art and Design, Lens-Based Media at Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam.
