Katja Novitskova

Katja Novitskova is an Estonian artist based in Amsterdam and Berlin. Her practice explores the ecologies surrounding image production on a level capable of affecting the planet and humanity. Novitskova’s work features mainly images found online and interrogates the positions and locations where the technological  and the physical coincide. Blurring distinctions between media, she is interested in the interpretation and perception of visual material through digital collages, sculptures and installations. 

Her work has been exhibited internationally in solo and group exhibitions including Kunstfort bij Vijfhuizen (2021, solo); Belgrade Biennal (2021), Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zürich (2020); Sharjah Art Foundation (2020); Powerlong Museum, Shanghai (2019); Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin (2019); the 14.
