Peter Sit is among the youngest authors of the photography generation and cannot be overlooked, not only for his approach to photography but also his active work in disseminating the medium to the broad public through the APART association and its activities, including the "50 Words" project promoting convemporary photography in Bratislava´s public spaces and association´s publication work.
Curator Lucia Gavulová apty writes the following of Peter Sit in an exhibition text with the literary title The Weight of Consciousness of the World, the Inability to Breathe with One´s Soul (2013): "...Peter Sit is a self-made author. Singular and determinative are his energy, curiosity and will to embrace everything as himself - his own consciousness, being, thought, language essence - as well as the external enviroment and various influences defining being as such. The need to say and express as much as possible renders him open to various influences, but fatal engulfment by the ubiquitos inspirational hum is forestalled by his natural sensitivity and ability not only to capture various sources, signals and ideas, but also to decode and select them. The intensity of his thoughts can sometimes be faster and more urgent than his momentaly ability to capture them artistically, as if form were in places a limiting factor..."
It is probably for this reason that, in addition to photographym other media have gradually become part of his expressive apparatus, shifting the limiting scope of a single medium to playful, appropriated enviroments. Peter Sit´s latest work, Prekrývajúce sa reality spojené s uvedomovaním si vlastnej prítomnosti na viacerých miestach súčasne (Covering up realities connected with becoming aware of one´s own presence in various places at the same time), is already an absolute installation that acts outwadly while at the same time engulfing itself in the infinte depth of a mirror.
