PRANNA

PRANNA - ARTIST AND ENGINEER OF THE ENGAGEMENT SITUATION. WORKS IN THE FIELD OF PARSITIPATORY ART, PERFORMANCE, VIDEO, INSTALLATION, SCULPTURE. IN HER PRACTICE, SHE EXPLORES THE IMPACT OF GLOBALIZATION AND MODERN SOCIOLOGICAL CONCEPTS ON HUMAN CONSCIOUSNESS AND QUALITY OF LIFE.

THE ARTIST DEVELOPS THE IDEA OF ECOLOGY AS A NECESSARY AND BASIC FORM OF THE POST-CONSUMPTION SOCIETY’S ETHICS. BUILDING HER OWN ARTISTIC LANGUAGE, PRANNA USES RECYCLED PLASTIC AND OTHER NONDEGRADABLE MATERIALS IN HER ARTWORKS, WHICH IS A METAPHOR FOR HUMAN PRESENCE (BOTH IN PHYSICAL AND DIGITAL SPACE).

what and

why?

PRANNA’S VISIONARY PRACTICE IS BASED ON THE STUDY OF HUMAN TRANSFORMATION PROCESSES IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF INFORMATION ABUNDANCE AND THE SITUATION OF OVERPRODUCTION OF MASS CULTURE PRODUCTS.

 

ANTHROPOMORPHIC CREATURES IN WHITE SUITS ARE OFTEN PRESENT IN THE WORKS OF THE ARTIST. THE CHARACTERS REPRESENT A MODEL OF A HUMAN OF THE FUTURE, WHICH AT THE SAME TIME SHOWS THE POTENTIAL TO ACCEPT ANY POSSIBLE HUMAN IDENTITY, OR TO REFUSE THE NEED TO MAKE A LIMITING CHOICE.

 

IN THE ARTIST’S WORKS, THE ROLE OF THE CHARACTERS MANIFESTS ITSELF THROUGH WITNESSING AND AN ATTEMPT TO MIMIC THE ENVIRONMENT. THEIR SILENT AND INACTIVE PRESENCE CONVEYS A FEELING OF CONFUSION OF A PERSON OF THE FUTURE IN THE FACE OF THE PRESENT.

 

MAINTAINING SILENCE AND REFRAINING FROM ACTIVE ACTION IS A RESTRAINED IMPERATIVE OF ARTISTIC EXPRESSION, WHICH EXPRESSES THE POSITION OF THE ARTIST IN RELATION TO THE SITUATION OF TOTAL CONTENT GLUT.

 

PRANNA ADDRESSES THE ISSUES OF PRODUCTION AND CONSUMPTION OF INFORMATION AND BUILDS ITS RESEARCH BASED ON THE THEORY OF ECOLOGICAL APPROACH. THE PRINCIPLE OF ECOLOGY IS MANIFESTED THROUGH THE RESPONSIBILITY OF SELF-REGULATION, WHICH SHOULD NOT BE DELEGATED TO EXTERNAL FORCES AND IS IN THE AREA OF INDIVIDUAL CONSCIOUSNESS OF EACH USER OF SPACE.

 

IN HER PRACTICE, PRANNA ALSO ACTS AS A WITNESS OR AGENT, DOCUMENTING THE PROCESS OF MINIMAL MODELING OF A SITUATION CAUSED BY AN EVENT, THE ABSENCE OF AN EVENT, SPACE ITSELF. IN THE PROCESS OF CREATING AN ARTWORK, THE PARTICIPANTS INDEPENDENTLY CHOOSE A TOLE MODEL, THE DEGREE OF INVOLVEMENT AND WAYS OF INTERACTION, THE ARTIST DETERMINES THE PLACE AND OFFERS ONE OF THE POSSIBLE SCENARIOS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF EVENTS IN IT.
