ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jovi Starc was born in Hungary and later immigrated with her family to the United States. Her academic and professional backgrounds reflect her diverse and intense interests in humanity.
She received her degree title, Theoretical Approach to Human Behaviour, accredited through Columbia University (N.Y.), The New School, and Hunter College where she majored in philosophy and minored in screen writing. She is also an alumnus of the one and only graduating class from the experimental General Arts programme of the University of the New World in Haute-Nendaz, Switzerland, with professors the likes of William Burroughs.
Her fascination for world creation myths blossomed when she participated in a gap year programme with a group of anthropologists studying the lives and customs of the Toholabal Mayan Indian tribe in the Yucatan jungle. She also travelled extensively through Central America photographing volcanic eruptions as the assistant to renowned vulcanologist and award-winning documentary filmmaker Alain Creusot-Eon.
She later created her own company in the field of industrial design and specialised in the development of infection control products and intravenous device systems, Unihold Medical. Her business activities led her to live alternately in London, Paris, Amsterdam, Bern, and New York. Finally however her exploratory and creative impulses drew her back to her original calling, the study of humanity.
She travelled overland photographing the landscape and people of Iran and Afghanistan. Then spent seven years sailing aboard her boat in Greek territorial waters investigating the origins of Hellenic myths and legends: her writings and extensive collection of photographs to be presented now are the fruit of that odyssey.
She speaks English, Hungarian, Greek, Spanish. She is currently in Greece to continue the three year project in creating the multi-media work titled Oresteia-X".
