Fotograf Magazine

Patrik Kovačovský

Reinterpretation of Schőner Wohnen

Schőner Wohnen’s modern living and lifestyle magazines from the 1960s and 1970s, with their specific photographic rhetoric, provoked Patrik Kovačovský to intervene artistically in the model visual memory trace of ubiquitous consumerism. By redrawing magazine photographs, he evoked a perceptual experience of a new quality, accentuating with humour and exaggeration the strategies of visual traps attacking our senses. Patrik Kovačovský (1970, Bratislava) teaches at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava, studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava and multimedia in the USA. He is the recipient of the Oskar Čepan Artist of the Year Award (1996). He has participated in exhibitions X. Documenta Kassel (accompanying exhibition, 1997), EXPO 2000 in Hannover, Biennale in Venice or Biennale of Multimedia and Film in Paris (2000), Art Museum in Tallinn (2011), etc.
