MONIKA SIGETI 

 

 

My art practice includes visual arts & new media; topics like: personal dilemmas, issue of identity in a difficult contemporary age, intimate spaces versus digital environment.

 

I am playing with the limits of identity

along with the boundaries of different media especially collage!

Using an auto-reflective approach to art - I’m expressing very directly my own experiences.

 

 

My mission is to provide create art with a specific message which triggers thoughts.

Inclusion 

Bodies

 

 

Photo montages, 2017.

 

Viral inclusion bodies are photomontages in which Im working on a digital sexuality, what for us today means an online relationship and is the picture of our body flesh really just an apparent freedom. New digital living and concept of changing identity forms is represented in this small boxes. What is not viral has never existed.

Revealing

 

 

In situ instalation, 2013.

 

 

The Altar is a center of worship and ritual place. I wanted to point out the intimate, different approach to religion/spirituality – I created my own Sacred Selfie Altar. I sacrificed myself in the context of inserting woman into sacred space – atypical for women as the second sex. Churches versus flamboyant Versailles, sacred vs profane are included. 

During this process of making collages, I made a lot of photos and short video formats.

Auto

saved

drawings

 



Autosaved drawings is a series of drawings that is integrated into autobiographical narrative, experiential, body and eroticized text, displaying directed and non-directed events / moments from everyday life. Formed in the year 2000 to date, a series of drawings is a kind of speech in the first person through which express individual mentally, physically, ethically, (erotic!) and political forms of conduct: intimate moments, romantic partners, family, friends, gay, music, parties and drinks, conflicts, masturbation, sex, sensuality and seduction. Like a quick and often incomplete records, Autosaved drawings are emotional impressions (fingerprints!) on paper, talking about the performance of women (self-reflexive!) subjectivity, interpreting and questioning the related private and public, womanhood / femininity and manhood / masculinity, ethics and eroticism. In this way, a series of drawings, indicating the autobiographical diary, chronicle hand recorded situations, places and emotions, thus undermining the form of conventional (family) photographic albums. The name itself Autosaved drawings refers to a computer on the automatic and periodic recording of an open document, which sets as its goal reducing the risk of data loss. In this regard, a series of drawings becomes open document (work in progress) that there is always automatically and periodically captures, recording a backups of memories and experiences, time and space.

Hidden

Conflicts

 

 

 

Autobiographic watercolours, 56x76cm, 2012.

 

 

Although very gentle, feminine and erotic, some of these works are on the verge of aggression and hatred. Love and hate are omnipresent, but one of them always has to overpower the other and take over more space. They as a conflicting concepts can't one without the other.

A series of watercolors present woman and her gentle, sensitive nature with all scars and trauma layers - layers that are cleverly hide beneath the apparent softness. Divided role of women carries a great burden. Might need to completely overturn traditional values in order to come up with innovative solutions in the understanding of the relationship of man and woman, and thus we can introduce a new practice in female-male relation.

Double

Trouble

 

 

Watercolours, A3, 2016.

 

 

With double self-portraits I am exploring ambivalence, hypocrisy, multiple layers of one person, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Presence of two or more distinct or split identities or personality states that continually have power over the person's behavior. Sense of confusion is always present.

How to find clarity? How can I find only one person in me?

I have shown a mini self-portrait, summarized in likewise miniaturized videos that are intertwined. By merging seemingly opposition themes such as presence and absence, artist’s isolation and public life, illusions about their antagonisms have been deleted. Contrast of the static geometrical photo-background and nearly transparent video images represent a dream of untouchable intimacy. Boxes as geometric frames are trying to preserve the intimate worlds.
This video-work was created by collecting different photo and video materials. Within it are embedded videos with pages of different magazines, video installations and short video excerpts from the private video-documented performance. At these video-clips paper-cuts with self-portrait appear, objects, transparent boxes, etc. As a basis for these short video clips I have used the photos of my installation of transparent plastic boxes and labels. The sound is obtained in a similar way - the collage. Sounds that are heard in the background: buzz of people, birds, waves and sounds of machines.

Tranquility women's movement, then passionate bodily spasm. The figures are drawn on the floor, side by side. They are sticking together and randomly touching. Encountering and splitting, irreducibility, indivisibility, the need for inverting. Indoors the bodies are curled up, limited mobility, women in their search. Swimming or sinking in itself. Own body in the plural. The bodies coalesce into a common movable form. It is a movement of melancholy.

Monika Sigeti started creating artworks in form of .gif within her long practice in photography and video works, which places her among rare artists in Serbia who have a decade-long experience in artistic expression though this digital format. Her art practice includes also works in technique of collages, collages-objects, drawings, digital applications, painting, spatial installations, performances and fashion design. Regardless of the media, her visual language is very strong and recognizable. Her work is characterized by issues of intimacy, eroticism and gender, which gives to her .gif works both dimensions of artistry and critique. Shortness and ephemeral character of the format turn scenes from everyday life into works of critique that discuss on cultural politics and position of contemporary artists at the time of global migrations and travels within art projects, residencies and study trips. She approaches cities differently from tourists, but also differently from architects, urban planners or historians of architecture. In her miniature .gif studies on life, art and urban issues, Monika plays with popular city brands, approaching them as familiar, domestic sites within which each artist and citizen feels as if being at home, no matter which part of the world they are in.
