MICHAELA KNIZOVA
My art is intuitive with inner stories and with my inner myth. I started as a painter and, besides videos and performances, devote myself mainly to photography under the name of Nynewe.

I work mostly with myself, with my personality and with my body, using self-portraits to express my artistic intentions. My topics are often related to forgotten stories or dark paranormal feminity, filled with symbolism of the classic fairy tale and traditional native folk myths.

I re-interprete archetypes, transpose them to modern times and give them a female view. I let my body become part of the places I use and melt them together with classic themes like saints but also elements of pop culture like horror movies. I want to create, with my body at the centre, a vision of unsettling shadows that still haunt the man in the civilized world.
