Martin Toldy

artist in residence May - June 2021, Slovak Republic // Ioana Păun, May - June 2020, Romania /

Martin Toldy graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in the VVV studio (Visual, Verbal, Public) under the guidance of Martin Piaček and Dávid Koronczi in 2019 with a diploma thesis on the topic of Fields and Roles on Our Scene.

Since 2013 he has basically been constantly working in the field of intermedia creation in academia (the longest under the leadership of Nora Ružičková), which is closest to his way of expression through the medium of art. He is primarily interested in the psychology of the relationship between the artist, the viewer, and the space in which their communications meet, as well as the possibilities of "psychologisation" of space as such (in connection with the event, time, perception), as well as aspects of the game, simulation, participatory and interaction.

He is the founder and an active member of the performative group Marína Abramovič Po Sebe Neupratuje

I am interested in the psychology of the relationship of the artists, audience and the space for their communication encounters, its “psychologization” with the plot, time and perception.

In this context I'm aware of the aspects of the play, simulation, participation and interaction. In other words we could describe my areas of interest to the relational aesthetics.{/I}
