Aleks Slota is a conceptual artist working primarily in the mediums of performance and sound art. Slota creates improvised and dynamic works that challenge audience engagement and the perceived safe space of the performance venue. He is often seeking an intimate connection with the public while at the same time playing with an uncomfortable and awkward atmosphere. To facilitate openness and immediacy, his performances follow three rules: no rehearsing, no acting, and no entertainment.
Slota’s projects address the themes of the public persona, systemic and interpersonal violence, and power structures both internalized and external. The work has been described as having a postmodern gothic sensibility, emerging from the influence of the metal, punk, and noise music scenes.
