Evening Conversation with Veneta Androva
Veneta Androva works in the field of experimental documentary film. In her practice she combines various sources such as archival and documentary material with painting. She connects these with each other through animations in virtual environments. In doing so, she questions social constructions of power (such as the relationship between art and gender or capitalism and love) and explores socio-political, economic and gender issues.
In the residency of Prater Digital, Androva continues her artistic research and creates a negotiable narrative. She stages a vision of the future in which robots would restore and contextualize well-known portraits of white male art history.
Veneta Androva born in Sofia, Bulgaria, graduated in Fine Arts from Weißensee Academy of Art Berlin in 2019. She also obtained a degree in History of Art and Philosophy from Humboldt University Berlin. Androva is the recipient of several scholarships, such as Elsa-Neumann-Scholarship, Artist Scholarship from Cusanuswerk, Mart Stam Scholarship and was nominated in 2020 with her work ‘From My Desert’ for the German Short Film Award. Recently she received Prix Ars Electronica 2021 – Award of Distinction for her film ‘AIVA’ in category ‘Computer Animation’, as well as Golden Horseman for Animated Film and LUCA Gender Diversity Award at Filmfest Dresden. Androva participated in numerous exhibitions at national and international venues, including DISPLAY (Berlin), CyberArt 2021 – Prix Ars Electronica Exhibition (Linz), Goethe-Institute Sofia (BG), Galeria Espacio Minimo (Madrid), Institute of Contemporary Art (Sofia), Monitoring Exhibition (Kassel DokFest).
