SUPERNOVA-CONNECTION

ABOUT

SUPERNOVA-CONNECTION is a collective for visual art, working with installative, performative and video formats, originally emerging from objects and prints. a twinsister collaboration by SVOLIKOVA + SVART.

/// SVOLIKOVA is working as a Playwright and Translator, chanelling the visions of her inner eye into absurd, performative and witty stage plays; originally studied visual arts in vienna after attaining a diploma in philosophy, where she majored with a thesis on the middle works of Michel Foucault. (Academy of Fine Arts Vienna 2011 – 2017, Diploma Studies of Philosophy, University of Vienna, 2004 – 2010, Erasmusstudies at the Universite 8, Paris Saint-Denis, 2007 – 2008, playwright course at Dramaforum Graz 2015 – 2017)

/// SVART dropped out of school and has spent the last years in an asylum for anxiety based disorders, where she worked on electronic music and performative concepts. Might as well just be her twins alter ego but how would you know.

The two sisters are busy with their careers each on their own but will be meeting privately in the Schauspielhaus Wien Hotel in autumn/winter 2021, more to come.
