Hungarian born Anna Piroska lives and works between Amsterdam and Paris.
After studying communication and aesthetics at the Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest, she moved to Paris where she earned a master degree at the Institut des sciences politiques (Sciences Po) and worked as a creative in the fashion and luxury segment.
Her need for questioning, thirst for the poetic and growing involvement in various art projects strengthened her aspiration to choose the path of artistic research and practice. Currently she is finishing her studies at the Dutch Art Institute (Master Art Praxis).
In her practice Anna Piroska uses multiple ways of listening and attuning to human and non-human bodies, spirits, spaces and turns to various forms of expression (poetry, photography, voice and sound, gestures or rituals) to create an atmosphere where something or someone from elsewhere can be present.
She sings in Sonic Witch Choir, an experimental female ensemble born from a collective research into sound waves and the voice as a guide for composing with the human and non-human, the foreign and familiar and creating a common landscape.
Anna Piroska is a member of Meduse MagiQ, a sound collective and space for female musicians and sound artists with a studio and record label in Amsterdam and MORE Projects, an artist collective based in France, a nomadic platform for creating, producing and diffusing contemporary art.
