Things created by Nik Timková lie on a common basis. Levitating photoshop clusters usually performed through the grid, which also anchors the final meeting. It's interface and that hackneyed "operating table", rendered from emotianl scrolling Sabbath. Synthetic hair strands coalesce as a membership card of Cut Club all-inclusive tickets to Gothic Disneyland. Gestures of touchscreens are smeared with make-up, where the importance of their shows just repeats a ritual towards housekeeping. Chrome-plated foil protects positive daily routine meeting with those images of imaginary visions, which were seen and clicked . House-keeping it real, day after day copy and paste, is engaged in the pictures of someone else.
The continuing stockholm series Existential Housekeeping in Hit Gallery is run through coconut kinhin to retail gallery living rooms, dressed in seasonal shutterstock monochrome. There are paintings stretched no over the frame but on the bight of rope. Flabby hand from white fabric in the space, is precisely hanging existential necessity. Honest handiwork by Nik does not born on the canvas, but on the sewing machine. Petrified caps ensure due protection factor, reflect the light from the monitor and color quality of jesmonit. Hypertext message can be read from the small reliefs, where neotribal motive passes into the author's initials NT or the NY Yankees.
Nik Timková graduated MA Fine Arts at Central Saint Martin's School of Art and Design and completed postgraduate project studies at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm. She is active member of the collective AM180 in which she is the curator of Cut Club, which connects young fashion design with the visual arts. In her works she use a variety of materials and media, from plaster casts to mouse clicks, transposes seen and reconfigures disturbing in the web interface of mind.
