Andrea Kalinová (1980) is a graduate of Milota Havránková’s Art Photography Studio at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, where she has also completed a doctoral study at the Department of Intermedia with dissertation work: „Artistic strategies as methods used to support and preserve endangered architectural heritage“. In her work, she is concerned with local memory and the revitalization of forgotten spaces. In 2011 she initiated the Abandoned (re)creation project, which engages in the popularisation of the threatened 20th-century architecture, especially in the spa town of Trenčianske Teplice.
In October Andrea is going for a 2-month residency stay to Novi Sad. The residency is organized in cooperation with Plants AIR, the program of Novi Sad 2021. The residency program is supported using public funding by Slovak Arts Council. The stay is also supported by Košice city and Creative Industry Košice.
