Igor Friedrich Petković

Moderator

Conceptual artist, visual artist, author, cultural manager and researcher Igor Friedrich Petković, born in the Austrian Alps in 1976, lives and works at homes in Central and Southeast Europe. He studied slavistics, cultural science and photography in Graz, Belgrade, Novi Sad and Ljubljana. He participates in international solo and group exhibitions and carries out international interdisciplinary projects and intercultural events. He was awarded the Outstanding Artist Award 2015 from Bundeskanzleramt Austria and was included in the Environmental Photographer of the Year Selection of the Royal Geographic Society London in 2013. Petković is the founder of APORON21 – Association of arts, cultures and sciences, :[ITSCH]: productions, NEW SAD PRODUCTION and ARTEBRE, and a founding member of SCHAUMBAD – free Atelierhouse Graz. He has recently released his photobook Das Franz Ferdinand Prinzip – Warum der Erste Weltkrieg wirklich begann (The Franz Ferdinand Principle – Why World War I really started) published by Edition Lammerhuber. Petković works on a variety of socially and politically committed, intercultural art and cultural projects and in transdisciplinary research fields. In his work he explores contemporary, artistic-scientific expressive possibilities, visionary life-realities, Dionysian-Apollonian event spaces, pop-cultural phenomena of the Zeitgeist, and historical and iconographic conditions.
He tackles socially relevant topics in order to examine them in terms of their scientific-artistic and social content and to interpret them through contemporary understanding. Thus, he develops artistic (counter) strategies on topics such as life realities and migration, identities and intercultural exchange, alternative social, economic, ecological and political processes, open remembrance culture, free knowledge transfer and phenomena of pop and subculture. His stylistic means are choreographed artivism, iconography of collective memory, guerrilla art
actions, mythical hyperrealism, poet portraits and sublime cinema, the respective media and formats always being developed from the stringency of the artistic conception. In his photographic works, films, space-grabbing installations, performances, interventions, exhibition projects and overall events, he interweaves transdisciplinary and multimedia approaches to supporting knowledge levels.

Samson Ogiamien

Samson Ogiamien

Author / Participant

Samson Ogiamien was born in Nigeria and has been working as a freelance artist in Graz, Austria for several years. After his training focussing on art and design as well as welding and construction, he managed a sculptor’s workshop and came to Austria in 2004. There, the young artist attended the two-year master class in sculpture at Ortweinschule Graz – college, from which he graduated with distinction in summer 2007. In 2014 he received the award of the city of Graz promoting outstanding artists. After performing at the international festival for Street & Puppet Theatre, La Strada, the artist was invited to participate in the Colombo Art Biennale, Sri Lanka. Ogiamien’s works are based on the traditions of his home country and usually show the human form in semi-abstract style, often using “contemporary” materials such as concrete, iron, varnish, resin. It is important to him that people less familiar with art should also be able to understand his works. Samson Ogiamien likes to help people experience and express their own creativity. Thus, the artist passes on his talents in workshops. Samson Ogiamien sees his art as a bridge between cultures and as an opportunity of bringing people together.

Arif Kryeziu

Arif Kryeziu

Author / Participant

Arif Kryeziu was born in Therandë (Kosovo) in 1961 and studied painting and set design in Tirana (Albania). He currently lives as a freelance writer and painter in Graz. In his novels, Kryeziu experiments with different styles and genres. He playfully combines Balkan blues, oriental charm and occidental boldness into a literary carpet with 1001 knots. A narrator par excellence who knows how to speak in the tongues of angels. Sometimes gloomy, sometimes euphoric, sometimes frivolous, sometimes inflammatory, but always gripping. In September 2016 his novel “Fucking Karma” was published by SadWolf Verlag.

Zoë Guglielmi

Zoë Guglielmi

Author / Participant

Zoe Guglielmi is a Croatian-born representational painter who, at the age of six, emigrated to Austria and studied in Vienna at the Academy of Fine Arts with Hubert Schmalix and Amelie von Wulffen. Because travel plays an essential role in her life as well as in her artistic work, Zoe has already lived in six different countries and has selected Greece as the current domicile, since this country has always been a big source of inspiration. Its colours, shapes as well as myths and archaic symbols have always inspired her and stimulated dream-like sequences of her works. The recurring motif of her works are animals and especially birds, which are known as prophetic beings, who are considered to be the portrayed people as abstract messengers or as a tool to display one’s emotions. They act as a kind of semantic translator of the psychological nuances and intended to highlight the downsides and visualise hidden aspects of the human psyche.
