Maria Komarova Research Artist
Maria Komarova is a Belarusian artist, currently based in Brussels. She works mainly in the field of postdramatic theatre, but also in sound and visual arts. Most of her works are characterized by using of usual things in unusual contexts with an attempt to change the view/listen-point to the daily life. Everyday aesthetics plays an important role in Maria’s artistic approach. She is getting inspiration in daily events and objects from public and private space. The perception and experience of objects from both points of view of a spectator and a consumer afterwards find a reflection in Maria’s art works.
Soon to be graduate in Scenography of Alternative and Puppet Theatre in the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, Maria is currently undertaking an internship in Overtoon. The part of her internship is an ongoing research, which is focusing on sound creation by use of simple electronic devices and collected found objects.
Maria is also a part of several collaborative projects. She is one of co-founders of an International Festival of Performative Art in Minsk (Belarus) - Performensk, DIY theatre group PYL and experimental sound duo kaine anung.
