2007               Being here, there and elsewhere (LONDON) — self-published
Nataša Sienčnik, born 1984, is a media artist and designer mapping different phenomena of being here, there and elsewhere, working on the intersection of various disciplines and territories. After her studies at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna (Transmedia Art), Kingston University in London (Communication Design) and Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam (Networked Media), she is currently based in Vienna and Carinthia. Her artistic research lies in a hybrid field with ephemeral borders, which questions the foundation of any object and its inclusion within any form of artistic category. Her works are heterogeneous in terms of technique, shape and dimension, and include theoretical investigations, photography, videos, and the modification of real objects and public installation that often involve the audience in a direct way. In the face of such formal complexity, the common denominator is the artist’s attention on the present time, in order to investigate its social, political, and cultural issues.
