In 2010 she completed a Master degree in photography and new media at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava. In 2010 Juneková won 1st prize in national competition for contemporary photographers held by VUB fundation. She exhibited her artworks in many group and several solo exhibitions in Slovakia and abroad. In her artist´s practice of recent years Andrea Juneková also reaches out beyond medium of photography into other media: objects, video, installation. Junekova´s work is dominated by multi-layered content. Uncovering a layers of un/consciouss and psychological narratives, maintaining emphasis on a role of women in society. „My recent artworks reflecs the state of our society – instability and temporality, I am
exploring a space where deconstruction of old mechanisms and paradigmas can take part."
I reflects temporality a lot. An attempt to (not) finding fixpoints after times called “late, radicalized modernity”/Giddens/, “risk society” /Beck/, “liquid modernity” /Bauman/”.In times of losing external stability one can turn inwards to redefine the internal integrity, to search for a stillness within a fluid. The relationship between micro and macro cosmos and its effect on the Universe. Redefining boundaries and the question of individual power that can affect the course of things through the “butterfly effect” - Theory of Chaos applied in everyday life. “Sensitivity to initial conditions means that two trajectories in phasic space will diverge exponentially with time”.
The artist-in-residence program takes place in the framework of the European Art Fellowship of the District Council of Upper Bavaria.
During the stay of the guest artists in Freising presentations and open studio days provide the possibility to meet with and know more about the artists. There is always the option to arrange individual visits and meetings as well.
