Judit Navratil

Judit Navratil’s practice is multivalent, engaging performance, social practices, drawing, as well as video and extended realities. Her projects are as much affective mappings of what it means to continuously oscillate between analog and digital, past and present; an immigrant’s attempt to construct “home.” Navratil uses her body-device to keep balance through her compass-meditation: the Long Distance Somersault career. Rolling as far as she can helps her seeking higher alternatives and to gaze in the Eye of the Hurricane. Navratil earned an MFA in Painting at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in 2008 and an MFA at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco in 2019. She has been exhibiting in Hungary, Canada, France, Korea and the Bay Area. Her work has been recognized through awards including the Cadogan Art Award, a residency at Cité Internationale des Arts (Paris) and the Parent Award of Kala Art Institute. She is currently a Phd Candidate at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna, an affiliate artist at the Headlands Center for the Arts and an Alternative Exposure grantee as the founder-mother of VR Art Camp. Art Camp is a social VR art residency program that is part of Judit’s ongoing project, a VR plattenbau called the Szívküldi Lakótelep, that is the base of her research, growing since 2018.
