Veronika Romhány (b.1987) is a visual artist based in Brussels, Belgium. She holds two Master's degrees (2013) in Painting, and in Visual Arts Education from the Hungarian University of Fine Arts. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate at Inter-Actions and Game Design Research Unit and works as a mentor at MA Game Design, LUCA School of Arts(BE). She is an active member of MŰTŐ since 2017, and of the Studio of Young Artists’ Association since 2011.

Romhány’s current research focus is to develop an immersive, peer-to-peer interactive tool where collaborative (artistic) practices can be monitored. By continuously appropriating the interface and features of these technological tools, she has developed a cynical, dark-toned techno-amateur style. She has been working in a collaborative form under the pseudonym Nimova Projeckt since 2015 with sound designers, or musicians from the DIY,  experimental electronic music scene from Hungary, Czech Republic, Ukraine, or from the Netherlands.

 

Yet, as understanding the term of ‘viewser’ as critics towards human agent superiority, in this long-term practice-based artistic research, she examines this reciprocal creative practice between the human and its software tools during creation. Using deconstructive analysis, followed by speculative reconstruction, her works portray mostly paradoxical situations in virtual, laboratory environments, focusing on the digitized, automated human body itself. She is using the imagery of monitoring, analysis, observation, or pseudo-experiments - while these action scenes are being digitally recorded.
