MICHAELA LAKOVA (1987)
Michaela Lakova (b. Bulgaria) is a visual artist based between Rotterdam and Sofia. In her work she explores digital traces, the notion of erasure and memory, and how they impact our perception of ownership. Through her works she challenges the slippery nature of digital memory over the immateriality of human memory. Her practice includes a diverse range of media: video, prints, found objects, web/screen based works and installations. She is a member of the Union of Artists based in Rotterdam CBK. Her works have been shown in international media art festivals and exhibitions such as: From the shore to the mud pool, VERKSMIÐJAN Á HJALTEYRI, Iceland, Altered Voices at Doza gallery, Sofia; Liminal recollection...between memory and reality, Depoo gallery, Sofia; Online Cinema TENT, Rotterdam; Rosa Stern, Munich, Borgerstraat Open Studios, Rotterdam, Digital Aesthetics,+359 gallery, Sofia; Digital Art Festival, Goethe Institut Sofia; Past-Present: Utopian dream for a nu(un)clear future, Æther Sofia, Medialab, Prado, Madrid; Art Meets Radical Openness (AMRO) Linz, Austria; Radical Networks, NYU, New York City; What Remains - Strategies of Saving and Deleting, esc medien kunst labor, Graz, Austria; ZK/U, Center for Art and Urbanistics, Berlin; Piksel Festival, Lydgallerit, Bergen, Norway, Unlinked, TENT Gallery, Rotterdam.
