About the Work
About #6 2010 Transform 74
In this photograph, Aleksander Bohnak photographs one of his signature photo-ready installations deploying vibrant color, ritual, and DIY aesthetic. The searing primary colors of this seemingly religious display are activated by the camera, all revolving around a seated naked figure who remains anonymous.
About the Artist
About Aleksander Bohnak
Aleksander's artwork takes many forms such as interactive installation, photographic prints, and videos made from sequencing photographs together. His process begins with a camera in a fixed position, creating a fixed perspective from which to build an installation. Engaging and playing with visual perspective and one's perception is integral to his practice. This comes about through playing with lighting, tape, objects, his body or the viewer's and their shadows. When he finds an interesting mixture of materials, shadow, and lighting, he sets the camera in place and begins to build a scene from it. The scenes become dense and multi-layered, transforming the space in which they were created.
After graduating, he had a featured installation in Cream from the top, a survey of compelling work from graduates of Bay Area MFA programs at the Performance Art Institute in San Francisco, CA. In addition, he was selected to create an installation at Verge's SUCCESS Party 2011. He was interviewed by Becky Grunewald about his work in Sacramento News and Review entitled "The transcendental artist."
