Slovakian artist Natalia Evelyn Bencicova (b. 1992) works mostly in digital photography and is currently studying at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. Having an interest in both individual and wider collective feelings, she conveys undercurrents of socialism in the featured series Asymptote. Within these ctional scenarios, anonymous figures create patterns of uniformity which allude to their own integration with architecture. Through stirring symmetry and cold, faded palettes, indistinguishable characters become part of the construction. Leaning across bannisters and draping themselves against walls, they create an emotional architecture in which arms and legs are at once mechanistic and melancholy. This unsettling world depicts jarring relationships between organic and concrete forms, and personal autonomy versus a community mentality; there is no conclusion in the hauntingly nostalgic imagery. www.evelynbencicova.com.
