Niki Passath (*1977) Graz, Österreich
Niki Passath searches in his artistic creations answers to the mystery of life, the people, their emotions, social behavior, their behavior compared to machines and to the surrounding nature.
On this adventurous journey in search for know- ledge he touches different disciplines. From robotics to artificial intelligence, from quantum physics to the life sciences. On different research travels through Europe to the Americas, Africa and Australia he is finding answers, which he assembles in kinetic objects, photographs and artistic-scientific configurations.
He expresses himself using different materials, technologies and media and is always looking for new challenges in form and content.
He works in different artistic media and cooperates in scientific research projects.
In 1988, he began with Violoncello studies, in 1995 with Architecture and graduated in 2004 in Digital Art (Peter Weibel, Karel Dudesek, Tom Fürstner) at the University of Applied Arts. He lives and works in Vienna and Graz.
Niki Passath is represented by the Gallery Peithner-Lichtenfels in Vienna, is member of the Künstlerhaus, Vienna and member of the Artist Collective Schaumbad in Graz, Austria.
