Nik Timková (1986, Slovakia) ’s artistic process is a magic ritual, for it involves the enchantment of visual signs. Her multimedia work is characterised mainly by spatial installations using ready-made or graphic design and textile elements. Nik often uses digital collages in which she rearranges signs, mixes their meanings, and brings together unrelated essences using the magic wand that is Photoshop. She combines the traditional iconography of witchcraft with the mythology of contemporary popular culture. The digital and the mythical come together on the surface of objects of a ritual nature.
Nik Timková studied at Central Saint Martins in London and graduated from the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm. In 2017 she was one of the winners of the Oskar Čepan Award. She is a member of the A.M. 180 team and co-organiser of Creepy Teepee. At present, she also works as an assistant in the Studio of Painting III. at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague.
