American sculptress Katarína Uhlířová | new face | 01.02.2009
AMERICAN SCULPTRESS
I’m hesitating how best to introduce Jana Kochánková (born 1979). I want to touch on, but not slavishly recite, everything surprising and fun about her work. So, by way of a very short, cursory introduction: Jana Kochánková, AKA Koko, American sculptress, graduated in 2006 from Vladimír Skrepl and Jiří Kovanda’s studio at the Academy of Creative Arts (AVU) in Prague. This article is supposed to…

Engraved Snapshot: Jitka Mikulicova William Hollister | new face | 01.02.2008
ENGRAVED SNAPSHOT: JITKA MIKULICOVA
It’s a deceptively simple game; it’s child’s play. Rip a piece of paper into shreds of various shapes and sizes, let them fall, scattering like snowflakes upon a table, and then push them around, arranging them variously until images emerge. That which comes together this way—order from chaos—says different things about one’s inner landscape than an image deliberately drawn. Figuratively…

ZUZANA VANSOVÁ
Zuzana Vansová * 7. 10 1982, Klatovy I didn’t study at an art-oriented school. I never participated in any art competition or show. I do not aspire to revolt and I detest any efforts to arouse profound feelings in contemporary art. Despite missing out on all that, I seek out experiences of geometry and introspection. Each geometric element has its aesthetic approach that is dependent on…
PAVEL STEREC PROFIL OR NEW FACE Palo Fabuš | new face | 01.04.2007
PAVEL STEREC PROFIL OR NEW FACE
Language, conditions for communication, and even the inexplicability of supra-individual phenomena at the personal level are topics that Pavel Sterec addresses in his work. A student of the Prague School of Arts (AVU), working in Miloš Sejn’s studio for conceptual design, his works define motivation and position as well as the general conditions for artistic production and…
Darina Alster Madla Bažantová | new face | 01.03.2007
DARINA ALSTER
You can say that I’m bisexual, perverse, that like to get high, and that I’m a bitch…yeah, write that down too! During her performances, Darina Alster switches her sex, gives herself out and seeks her double. With her natural-born exhibitionism as well as her physical beauty as loyal allies, she beckons her audience into her privacy and further into her archetypal world where androgyny and…
No More Graffiti Lenka Vítková | new face | 01.03.2007
NO MORE GRAFFITI
Does it make any sense to write poetry after the enlightenment, or to paint in the age of digital technology? Along with his daughter, Pavel Štýbr, who was born in 1957 and resides in Pilsen, began to paint after 911 and from that time has created volumes of photographs, collages, assemblages and paintings. His roots lie in Czech landscape painting such as the work of Vaclav Rabas, but…
I love 69 popgejú Jiří Ptáček | new face | 01.02.2006
I LOVE 69 POPGEJÚ
If the Red Hot Chilli Peppers shocked their fans, at the time, by wearing socks on their private parts, then i love 69 popgejů hypnotizes them with leopard print hand-made underwear (with a large stuffed phallus hanging out) while writhing their bodies and wearing tennis shoes on their head. Three of the four members of this performance group met in Valašské Meziříčí, Moravia. Currently they live…
Vendula Chalánková Jiří Ptáček | new face | 01.04.2004
VENDULA CHALÁNKOVÁ
Vendula Chalánková is an unexpected surprise of the Brno stage. It is possible that if she didn’t bring a comics diary about her trip to India, she wouldn’t be noticed by Eskort gallery’s Jana Kalinová or Pavel Pražák, the “virtual soul” of the Magda web gallery. It would be difficult to look for speculation in Chalánková. She is natural and warm. Her Indian diary documents no consistent story,…
Matìj Smetana Jiří Ptáček | new face | 01.03.2004
MATÌJ SMETANA
Matìj Smetana was born in Prague in 1980, spent his fourth year in the painting studio of Petr Kvíèala at the Faculty of visual arts in Brno. Each of his realizations are based on one peculiar, cunning conception. He sets himself free topics but only when they have clear limitations. He’s already wittily expressed himself with Occam’s razor project. He drew pictures of knives on small cuttings of…
