VJ EMIKO / Emilia Gumańska - visual artist: vj, video designer and producer, camera operator, photographer.
Projects by VJ Emiko, connecting body motives and its movement with graphical analog elements in a rank of symbols, belong to the category of experimental video art. By expressing the emotional states of a human – the vessel, they create audiovisual show, which in connection with music enhances the inner feelings of the spectator.
VJ EMIKO's visuals, created from a photo-movie like scenes, are filled with energy, movement, shape and dynamics of the actors. With a help of interesting and very characteristic for her means of expression, she creates pure and minimalist form, where the emotionally charged human body presented in a sensual, almost dreamlike manner across multiple spatial configurations, becomes the crucial element of the act.
During the process of creation she uses video, photos and animations based on her own video scenarios, styling, and hand-made elements of stage decoration. Paying great attention to the shape and form of visualized form, she uses characteristic spatial structures, solids and installations of her own design. The proposed visual message is not literal and unambiguous, it leaves the spectator with multi-level space for interpretation. Minimalist images of a powerful emotional saturation effectively control the feelings of the viewer.
VJ EMIKO presents an individual approach to Vj movement, and innovative projects corresponding to the global trends of video art. Extremely hypnotic and minimalist productions by VJ Emiko can be seen in the form of video projections, installations and mikroklips, at the club and festival spaces, art galleries or at the crucial, musical and audiovisual cultural events in Poland and abroad.
