about

Maria Komarova is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice is situated on the borders of performing arts, scenography, sound and installation art. She is interested in creating spatial settings that foster a sense of curiosity and attention toward everydayness. By staging and technically repurposing commonplace objects, Komarova’s works emphasize sonic and visual potential of the non-human world. Working with sound as a performative medium, she continuously develops DIY electro-acoustic objects and lets them temporarily inhabit the sites of performances and installations.

Komarova is a cofounder of Prague-based theatre collective PYL, International Festival of Performative Arts — Performensk (formerly based in Minsk, since 2022 — in exile).

Currently, Komarova is working on a research project Nowhereland in Sonoscopia (Porto) in collaboration with found artifacts modified by the sea and by mankind.
