Sincerely, Victor Pike, 2023

Sincerely, Victor Pike delves into the concept of community—a distinct, diverse, geographically and chronologically varied community. It extends beyond a community of queer individuals, embodying the original sense of the word as these people never met in time or space but only exist in my memory. The work explores what constitutes a community, how it is framed and shaped, and, most importantly, how it is maintained and cared for.

Utilizing machine learning and AI generative algorithms to transform personal memories, Gregor Petrikovič presents a multitude of voices, inviting various personas into a dialogue that intertwines with physical forms, movements, and gestures.
