Aleksandra Vajd

Aleksandra Vajd’s artistic practice explores the photographic medium while challenging its boundaries. The artist works with the image as if it was an object, makes use of space and is interested in the materiality of light. Vajd has recently focused on reductive photographic work, which explores the limits of the medium, with particular emphasis on its materiality. Minimalist groups are formed by combining two or more exposed photographs, creating an almost embossed impression on the wall and allowing us to think about the object-hood of the supposedly immaterial medium.
Slovenian artist Aleksandra Vajd studied photography at the Film and Television School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (FAMU) and at the State University of New York at New Paltz. In 2008, she was awarded the degree of associate professor at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana, Slovenia. From 2005 to 2015, she predominantly worked in collaboration with Czech photographer Hynek Alt. Since 2008, she heads the Department of Photography at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague.
