Croatia, Poreč
Davor Sanvincenti / b.1979 / is a multimedia artist from Croatia, also known by monikers such as Messmatik and Gurtjo Ningmor. He is specifically interested in a field of audiovisual research and anthropology of visual culture, particularly focused on the conditions and forms of human senses and perceptions. Notices, observations and research that pervade scientific and artistic spheres constitute the structure for his work. His artistic practice takes shape in the variety of media - film and video, photography, physical light and sound installations and live media performances.
His work plays with the concept of illusion, exploring the possible boundaries of perception and the construction of experience. Sanvincenti explores aesthetical and qualitative capabilities of different media as direct communication with the spectator which becomes an inevitable part of the work, the reflecting contemplative-physical structure.
His work has been exhibited and presented internationally, at venues including Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; HfG/ZKM, Karlsruhe; Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid; MoCA, Zagreb; Lincoln Center, New York; HB Galerie, Rotterdam; Joanneum Museum, Graz; NIU, Barcelona; La Triennale, Milano; Haus der Kulturenwelt, Berlin. He is the 2010 recipient of the Radoslav Putar Award for the best Croatian artist under 35. His physical video installation 1001 takes part of the AV collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb.
