The key moment of Petra Feriancova`s work is the conceptualization of own emotional reactions to the processes of perception and memory as well as examination of the conditions of their sharing. As the starting point the artist usually uses the already created pictures and texts which are methodically re-composed and interpreted. The main aim of the manipulation with a reference, pictorial or discursive, is to provide a spectator with the original affective reaction to it.
