About

Silvia Binda Heiserova's artistic interest lies in the analysis of modern phallocentric power structures, symbols and vestiges. She explores concepts of symbolic masculine power, its historical contexts, mechanisms of its establishing, while rethinking patterns of social perception. Representations of superiority and authority encoded as a repetitive pattern, how they manifest and vary in our daily experience are foundational concepts in her practice. In her current artistic research and practice, Silvia investigates about the urban memory of western metropolises from a critical feminist perspective. Silvia’s imagery draws upon her vision of the urban space as a political arena, where the struggle for power and control is embodied in architecture, especially in the commemorative monuments representing a biased reading of history. With the aim to question the legitimacy of patriarchal power through its symbolic representations, Silvia experiments with fragmentation, hybridisation of elements, colours and forms.

Silvia Binda Heiserova lives and works between Bratislava (Slovakia) and Valencia (Spain). She earned her MFA degree from the Faculty of Fine Arts, Polytechnic University of Valencia, where she is currently enrolled in the Doctoral Programme in Artistic Practice and Research.
