Om Bori   *born in Berlin.

  

graduated from the Hungarian University of Fine Arts (MA. Intermedia Studies) and the Berlin University of Arts (Meisterschülerin, Fine Arts).

She is represented by MyMuseum Gallery, a member of the the Studio of Young Artists’ Association in Budapest and the Saloon Network in Berlin.

 

Bori´s work combines still and moving images with different narratives genres, from memoir to documentary through to song and tale. It explores the intersection of visual and verbal exposition by means of videos, animations, drawings, objects, rhythms and algorithms. Point of departure are studies of a milieu, place or landscape and the human and nonhuman relations enfolding therein. Conceptually, it directs attention to how structural forces steer individual and collective lives, and how the individual and the collective attempt to resist such structural determination, whether through labour, hope, love, migration or madness.

 

Recent results are a two-channel video installation about the life story of a schizophrenic woman (Der Apparat, 2020); a three-channel video installation about the symbolic and geographical significance of the Danube river in the intergenerational history of a central European migrant family (Maria Josefin Margarete, 2019); and an algorithm-created graphic rendering of Hundrieser's sculpture "Berolina" as a mythical figure of female invincibility (I won ́t be this way very long, 2018).
