Pavel Sterec was born in 1985 in Prague, where he still lives and works. He studied in Brno, Prague, and Vienna, and graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts (AVU) in Prague, where he studied under Vladimír Skrepl, Jiří Kovanda, Zbigniew Libera and Pawel Althamer. Currently he teaches at the Intermedia Departement of the Faculty of Fine Arts at the Technical University Brno.
Pavel Sterec mulls over his work for a long time. He combines performance, object, installation, photography and other media in a variety of ways. His interest circles around the issues of research, science, museums and archives, social structures and our dependency on tangible or symbolic capital. These days he is one of a wave of artists who express themselves through the social environment and its semantic and metaphorical potential. As he himself writes: “I experiment on a small scale with social engineering as an artistic procedure”.
