Erik Sikora (born 1986) is a Slovak artist living in Košice. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and now came back to his hometown Kosice, Slovakia, pursuing his PhD studies about the authenticity in post-internet society.
Erik Sikora uses in his work uncomplicated, non-prefabricated, but also suspiciously marketed or widely adopted DIY methods. In the spirit of the contemporary music video culture he prefers, above anything else, working with video, often composed with epic sound poetry. His videos are records of live performances on the threshold of nonsense and poetic symbolism. He is interested in banality and its imaginative potential; shortly, an unbridled concept of life. His tool of research is creativity as a spontaneous situational activity that frees imagination of its inveterate habits and rules, allows an authentic being, and, potentially, can fire off the famous social bomb.
