Bio

Petra Hermanová is a visual artist and musician working with moving image through narrative experiments, and works with drawing and text. Apart from a strong interest in the past, emotions, tension, alienation and paradox, she explores processes of memory and memories: some of her previous works dealt with their elusiveness, power to change the surroundings, concept of fake memories and idea that one could transport memories between human minds. She has worked and exhibited in Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Germany, Hungary, Iceland and Norway. As Hermanova, she creates live visuals and music videos for the Norwegian-born, Berlin-based producer Boska, Tromsø-based artists Frost and Mental Overdrive, and jazz musicians like Live Foyn Friis and Nils Petter Molvær. After receiving her master's degree she relocated to Berlin with the rest of her band Fiordmoss. She is a founding member of the Fathermother Collective.
