INFO : Monika Fryčová (b. 1983, Czechoslovakia) is an audiovisual artist, performer, and writer based in Seydisfjordur, Iceland and partly in southern Portugal.
She frequently deals with mixed media and untranslatable experiences, trying to perform under their own rhythms – the Here and the Now – the search for the primal source constantly found, only to be deserted again. Her work evidences the behaviour of certain nonlinear dynamic systems, the relationships between the seen and the indicated (unseen), the constantly in motion and the ephemeral, via symbols, aesthetics and the lens of history. She has been exploring freedom, intercultural issues and border culture, exotic minorities and experimental languages.
Currently works on permanent project Fantasy versus Discipline, The Artist as an Etnographer and organizes vivid dialogue between Iceland and Mauritius.
Fryčová holds a M.A. in visual arts from the Fine Arts Faculty in Czech Republic, and has studied at the Academy of Arts in Reykjavík, Iceland.
Since 2003 she has been touring and exhibiting her work around the world.
