A young artist from Slovakia who has already taken part in several international projects, including the parallel program of the 2016 Moscow Biennale for Young Art.
The artist does not stop at the study of the visual memory of a simple person: he studies the visual perception of a modern person who half lives in a virtual environment. Can a familiar natural landscape be seen by a person who spends 8 hours of his life in front of a computer screen or in front of a TV screen and whose consciousness is immersed in the net of the Internet, just like 100 years ago? Is there a grid in front of our eyes? In his latest works, Peter Zwick experiments with materials in painting: he uses plastic and mesh that cover the canvas, with half-blurred images on it. The grid is both a symbol of the Internet and a symbol of protection, a kind of comfortable veil that hides reality from us. Such a question about the interaction of virtual and natural reality seems all the more relevant today because the development of augmented reality technologies is becoming more and more active, and how our perception will change and our "reality" is important for understanding today. The artist's works are the forgetting of natural reality by the human consciousness that lives in the world of the Internet and images of mass culture.
