Katja Novitskova

Eyes of the World

The Museum für Gegenwartskunst Siegen is now showing the first monographic museum exhibition by Katja Novitskova (*1984 in Tallinn, Estonia, lives and works in Amsterdam) in Germany. Eyes of the World presents a comprehensive overview of her works from the last 10 years and includes a number of new pieces.

Novitskova’s concern is with digital images of nature and their influence on the way we perceive the world. She explores imaging techniques and their use in art, science and society. Her work is based on ongoing investigation of current research in biotechnology and revolves around the question of the future continuity of the organic as a component of technological processes. In this context, Novitskova is also interested in environmental issues and the extension of human technological possibilities to the micro and macro levels of our planet. In current works, she hasextended her artistic enquiry to include the influence of digital data systems and artificial intelligence (AI) on our visual and spatial experience.
Playfully exploring different concepts of artificial intelligence, she creates works that oscillate between human and machine, physical and digital worlds and looks for areas where human-beings, machines and the environment intersect. Her exhibitions are complex environments consisting of sculptural elements, murals, material images and projections.

Katja Novitskova was born in Tallinn, Estonia in 1984. She lives and works in Amsterdam, where she has already participated in the international residency program of the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten from 2013 to 2014. Previously, she studied graphic design at the Sandberg Instituut, Amsterdam, and earned a master’s degree in natural sciences at the University of Lübeck (2007). In 2017, the artist represented her home country Estonia at the 57th Venice Biennale.
