The project also included mentoring with an arts professional whom I had in-depth discussions about my practice, projects, perspective, representation and goals. We refined the language I use to express my concepts and narrative; together we worked on my artist statement and viewed my on-line presence too. Aspects I found most helpful, if one has to pick one is receiving a so-called reading list with works by philosophers and thinkers, artists and scientists focusing on related subject matters. It’s been a tremendous help for me to work with an experienced mentor giving me confidence and reassurance about aspects I had less knowledge in. This experience has already showed its further advantages when making new work in the studio, writing or talking about my work, approaching my industry or other artists (including the how and when) responding to and creating my own opportunities too.
A few works in photography from the continuation of the body of work ‘Mundane’ started in 2017. These images are the result of further investigation of the structure of single-use objects. To view videos and further work in photography please find me on Instagram @rita_parniczky
