Central in Maika Garnica┬┤s practice is the relationship between the environment, the spectator and the artist. She often applies prototypes to comprehend the complex relation between form and matter while instigating the position of the body as a vehicle for social connections. Through various contextual variations the nature of the work shifts spontaneously from sculptures, utilitarian objects to sound installations. In 2015 Garnica received the Academia Belgica Price in Rome, she exhibited at the Jan Colle Gallery in Ghent and Komplot in Brussels among others.
