KATARÍNA DUBOVSKÁ

 




In my work I explore the periphery of perception, visibility and media imagery.
In so doing, I intersect investigations of natural phenomena with questions regarding the nature of the
post-photographic, technical and fluid image. The inquiry about media (re-)presentation and construction
to the point of fiction is essential and consistent. Often my work is based on methods, images and
theories from the fields of natural science, which assert a reality within their own systems and models.
More and more, the question arises of what is not shown and for what reason.

I work with experimental as well as current digital imaging methods, whereby the question of the image
as both a visualizing and analytical body is fundamental. In correspondence with the matrix of the
image, I understand space as an extended field to arrange images, objects and time-based work into a
self-referential and self-reflexive netting. Acting between science and imagination, I challenge the limits
and methods of our vision and knowledge. Observation of the world becomes the subjunctive and the
image becomes a hypothesis.

In meiner Arbeit forsche ich an den Grenzen von Wahrnehmung, Sichtbarkeit und medialer Bildlichkeit.
Dabei verschränke ich Untersuchungen von Naturphänomenen mit Fragen nach der Natur des
post-fotografischen, technischen und instabilen Bildes. Wesentlich ist immer wieder die Frage nach
medialer (Re-)Präsentation und Konstruktion bis hin zur Fiktion. Meine Arbeiten enstehen häufig in
Anlehnung an Methoden, Bilder und Theorien der Naturwissenschaften, die innerhalb ihres Systems
und Modells Wirklichkeit behaupten. Immer mehr stellt sich die Frage, was nicht gezeigt wird und aus
welchen Gründen.

Ich arbeite mit experimentellen, als auch aktuellen digitalen bildgebenden Verfahren, wobei die Frage
nach dem Bild als sichtbarmachender und zugleich durchleuchteter Körper elementar ist. In Analogie
zur Bildmatrix arrangiere ich im Raum als erweitertes Möglichkeitsfeld Bilder, Objekte und zeitbasierte
Arbeiten zu einem selbstreferentiellen Geflecht. Zwischen Naturwissenschaft und Einbildungskraft
bewegend, hinterfrage ich Grenzen und Methoden unseres Sehens und Wissens. Weltbeobachtung
wird zum Konjunktiv und das Bild zur Hypothese.
