Roman Ondak Biography

Roman Ondak's work evolves from a performative conception and consists of sculpture, installation, photography, drawing and performance. The artist often uses found objects. His medium is the everyday and society's sets of expectations, assumptions, automatisms and projections that shape our perception of reality. Although the collaborative approach is not always immediately visible, Ondak has also foregrounded the production of object-based elements by others: For his series of drawings and objects entitled Common Trip, for example, the artist asked others, among them family and friends, to make a drawing or object based on his description. Often, Roman Ondak transforms everyday rituals into poignant performative situations, obliquely addressing social and political ideas and images.
