Liz Xi: a platform for art and criticism

Artist in Focus: Petra Feriancová

Contemporary Art London

From the Artist in Focus Series

By Edward Sheldrick

Petra Feriancová’s works are often research-based undertakings centred on objects, terrestrial images, cosmogonic content, texts and collections, such as historical and personal archives accumulated by her and her extended family members. Rather than creating original imagery, she often works with this pre-existing material: “My work involving the external world has become saturated to such an extent that I decided to focus on material already accumulated”.
