Dinka Pignon
Dinka Pignon works with spatial video installation and ‘video sculpture’. Her practice is experimental, situated in the field of ‘mixed reality’. In her installations, large-scale video projections reshape the architecture of the space and create illusionary effects over objects. Operating on the borderline between the real and the virtual, the work is characterized by my strong affinity for the phenomenal, liminal, conceptual and minimal.

Artist Profile

Dinka Pignon

DINKA PIGNON is an interdisciplinary media artist working with spatial video installation, ‘video sculpture’ and performance. Her experimental practice is characterized by a strong affinity for the phenomenal, liminal, conceptual and minimal.

The work is situated in the field of ‘mixed reality’, operating on the borderline between the real and the virtual. In her installations, large-scale video projections reshape the architecture of the space and create illusionary effects over objects. Built in this manner, some of her installations are made to serve as virtual environments for performance to take place, often inviting audience participation.
Over the last 30 years, Dinka has produced a large body of work that has been shown world wide. Parallel to her own practice, she has coordinated and curated interdisciplinary art events, festivals, experimental workshops and international art exchange programs. Devoted to artist-run culture, she has spent most of her working life in artist-run centers: 15 years at the Fylkingen for New Music & Intermedia Art in Stockholm and 10 years at VIVO Media Arts Center in Vancouver.
