Maria Komarova

Interdisciplinary Artist

Maria Komarova is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice is situated on the borders of performing arts, scenography, sound and installation art. She is interested in creating spatial settings that foster a sense of curiosity and attention toward everydayness. By staging and technically repurposing commonplace objects, Komarova’s works emphasize materiality and creative capacities of the non-human world. Working with sound as a performative medium, she continuously develops DIY electro-acoustic objects and lets them temporarily inhabit the sites of performances and installations. During the past years, her work has been presented internationally at such festivals and venues as Oscillation, Archipel, Rewire, Reveil, Sonic Acts, Lisboa Soa, Ear to the Ground, Barents Spektakel, STUK among others.

 

Komarova is a cofounder of a Prague-based association di.pole, z.s., theatre collective PYL and Performensk festival (formed in Minsk, currently in exile). https://mariakomarova.org/
