Viktoria Szaboova (b.1997, Slovakia), is a Glasgow based artist and photographer. She graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 2020 with a First Class BA (Hons) in Painting & Printmaking. Her practice is autobiographical and self-motivated, orbiting around identity politics – an umbrella term for personal experiences concerning authenticity, cultural heritage, childhood and womanhood. Viktoria’s work titled “Domovina” is set to feature at the Contemporary Art Festival Tehláreň in Liptovsky Mikulas, Slovakia, and her recent work ‘ALFA&Romeo’ will be exhibited in a group exhibition “On the Other Side” at HOXTON 253, London, as a part of a series of international exhibitions curated by Aeji Seo.
Translating personal memories and feelings into atmospheres via a range of media such as painting, print, photography, and installation, Szaboova creates hyper-material combines not fixed physically nor categorically. Through her work, she oscillates between the many polarities that inhabit the self and the other – with this oscillation functioning as the main catalyst for self- understanding and healing.
