Peter Sit born in 1991 @ Trnava, Czechoslovakia

Peter Sit (1991) studies in the Studio of photography led by Aleksandra Vajd and Hynek Alt at the Academy of Arts, Architecture & Design in Prague. In 2012 he became the co-founder of the civil association called Apart (apart.sk), which aims to support connection of people with the interest of activating cultural life and to create the optimal terms for mediation of visual art and photography to the public, especially by project-based and publication activities (the core of the association are currently beside Sit also Denis Kozerawski, Andrej Žabkay and graphic designer Magda Scheryová). In his artworks he went through wholly mrguedium of photography to more widely media based and situationally concieved acts. The creating itself is for the author a tool for discovering, examining and at the same time living the life and everyday reality that he naturally captures with art. He is active in various spheres of culture. Until now his bigger group project has been the participation at the discourse platform 'Revolution without Movement' , iniciated by Gallery HIT and association tranzit.sk in November 2014, in which together with Erik Janeček and Matej Myslovič a social club was re-iniciated in the space of the gallery, referring to the former same usage of this place a long time ago. He had a solo exhibition in December 2014 in Bratislava and at the end of January 2015 in Ústí nad Labem.
