aka Nimova

Veronika Romhány (1987, Budapest) is a visual artist with multidisciplinary interest, currently living in Brussels, Belgium. As a long-term practice based artistic research she frames her collaborative works as Nimova Projeckt since 2015. Through these collaborative practices she focuses on experimental narrative forms in 3D animation - with a definite need to examine the relation between the human and its software tools as a reciprocal creative practice. In most cases, these projects portray a paradoxical situation in virtual, laboratory environments, using techniques such as monitoring, analysis, observation, or pseudo-experiments to examine human behavior - while being digitally recorded. She is a member of MŰTŐ since 2017.

//about the Projeckt//

The learned forms of behavior are closely linked to the lifestyles and situations that characterize man. The projects try to record these patterns and define them as surviving techniques. Using deconstructive analysis, followed by speculative reconstruction, each project creates manipulative, first-person narration and places it into post-real like laboratory conditions. Each narration fluctuates around picturing the self by highlighting distortions in the personality. The reason behind the narrative use is the idea that self-analysis results in the disintegration of the originally undivided unity between body and consciousness. According to a subjective conviction, self-examination splits the inherently integral 'I' into two and, at the level of the linguistic expression, the 'I' becomes the observed and the observer too at the same time. In most cases, the projects portray this paradoxical situation in a virtual, laboratory environment, using techniques such as monitoring, analysis, observation, or quasi-experiments recorded (re-creation processes).
