Hyperlink Athens presents GIGNESTHAI a solo exhibition by Katja Novitskova.
GIGNESTHAI is a creature that was born out of a messy dataset of all the documentation photos and research images of Katja Novitskova's work. Still raw, it emerges from the darkness of machine learning and the chaos of pixelated reflections of life.
Katja Novitskova (born 1984 in Tallinn, Estonia) is an Estonian installation artist. She lives and works in Amsterdam and Berlin. Her work focuses on issues of technology, evolutionary processes, digital imagery and corporate aesthetics. Novitskova is interested in investigating how, "media actively redefines the world and culture, and everything" related to art, nature and commerce. In 2019, Novitskova was shortlisted for the Preis der Nationalgalerie, a nomination accompanied by an exhibition at Hamburger Bahnhof - Museum für Gegenwart, Berlin. Novitskova is currently represented by Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler in Berlin and Greene Naftali in New York City.
Hyperlink Athens is an open research project, a site of interdisciplinary collaboration; this is the core that characterizes its trajectory. Hyperlink expands its practice/methodology into a symbiotic manner with off-site installations, in-situ interventions, video documentation and sound, with a view to create an autonomous fluid mode between artwork and curation. The praxis of putting works in a new light, provides a critical research process of investigation, discovery and reflection on contemporary culture.
GIGNESTHAI is the debut show of the Hyperlink Athens project space in the centre of Athens.
