Katarina Poliacikova is a visual artist and writer based in Slovakia.

Since the very beginning of her practice, Katarina Poliacikova has taken the everyday experience as her material and observation as her working method. In her artwork, she employs photography, video and installation to tell stories about time, memory and relationships. She is interested in both the intensity and fragility of human connections. A contemplative reflection on reality underlies her creative process in which she often incorporates found materials such as objects, photographs or fragments of real life narratives.

Since 2010, Katarina Poliacikova took part in many artist-in-residence programs across Europe and in the U.S, including Futura Centre for Contemporary Art in Prague, Zamek Ujazdowski in Warsaw, Residency Unlimited in NYC and AiR 351 in Lisbon.

Among others, Katarina Poliacikova has shown her work in solo shows at Jiri Svestka Gallery Prague/Berlin, Open Source Gallery in New York and the Museum of Natural History and Science in Lisbon.
