DAVOR SANVINCENTI

web: www.messmatik.net

Davor Sanvincenti / b.1979 / is a multimedia artist from Croatia. He is specifically interested in a field of audiovisual phenomenology and anthropology of visual culture, particularly focused on the conditions and forms of human senses and perceptions. His artistic practice takes shape in the variety of media – film and video, photography, physical light and sound installations and live media performances. His work plays with the concept of illusion, exploring the possible boundaries of perception and the construction of experience. In 2010, he was recipient of the Radoslav Putar Award for the best Croatian artist under 35.

His work has been exhibited and presented internationally, including festivals Rencontres Internationales, Paris/Berlin/Madrid; 28th Music Bienale, Zagreb; LOOP, Barcelona; 25FPS, Zagreb; World Film Festival, Bangkok; VideoEX, Zurich; CineMed, Montpellier and venues including Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; ZKM, Karlsruhe; Lincoln Center, New York; UniversalMuseum Joanneum, Graz; FRAC Pays de la Loire, Nates; Museo de Arte Contemporanea, Oaxaca; Camera Austria, Graz; MoCA, Zagreb; NIU, Barcelona; La Triennale, Milano; Filmoteca Española, Madrid; Art Pavilion, Zagreb; Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin.
