Mira Keratová | new faces | en cs

born in 1977, she studied in Prof. Daniel Fischer’s
studio of intermedia at VŠVU in Bratislava.



During her studies Šramatoyová made — among others things — a project together with Aneta Mona Chisa called ARTODAY (2001) in which they used colorful sequins to manipulate well-known works of contemporary art. In her project White Paper (2000, Bratislava) she stuck up, dropped into mailboxes, or handed out to surprised passers-by in the city clean white “flyers.” As part of the project Gallery By Day (2001 Bratislava) she organized a one-day event in a grocery store to sell products that she had stripped of packaging and advertising. The rock-bottom price was what it cost to actually make the raw product. Similarly, the sugary surface of the object Sweet Bed — a bed presented at the exhibition NYBÜVITT (GJK Trnava, 2002) — gave viewers the opportunity to interact live with the object by touching it, licking it or whatever. After each interaction a fresh coat of sugar was spread over the surface, offering a new challenge and open space for interaction with the virginal white powdery surface. A project reminiscent of ad rhetoric, Come and Win (Gallery Medium, Bratislava, 2003), was made as a contest and propagated through the media. It drew a massive number of people to the opening of the exhibition Dream Holiday. After the opening speeches there was a drawing in which one lucky winner won a five-day sightseeing tour of Paris with the artist. The story of the drawing and the whole tour was documented in detail and then presented. The catalogue for the exhibition was made as a folding picture-book that referred to the well-known Parisian souvenirs. Besides these neo-conceptual tendencies, the artist shows a constant interest in the medium of painting, using its hyper-realistic language, through which she articulates other meanings and layers, as can be seen in her latest Project 19. At the exhibition This is my place (Banská Bystrica, 2003), she presented 19 hyper-realistic paintings of the entries or gates to all the houses she has ever lived in. Their small scale, framing and technical presentation create a series of impersonal documentary, non-nostalgic photographs.

Magda Tóthová Magda Tóthová
Borrowing heavily from fairy tales, fables and science fiction, the art of Magda Tóthová revolves around modern utopias and social models and their failures. Her works address personal and social issues, both the private and the political. The stylistic device of personification is central to the social criticism emblematic of her work and to the negotiation of concepts used to construct norms.…

The Top 10 Czech Artists from the 1990s The Top 10 Czech Artists from the 1990s
The editors of Umělec have decided to come up with a list of ten artists who, in our opinion, were of crucial importance for the Czech art scene in the 1990s. After long debate and the setting of criteria, we arrived at a list of names we consider significant for the local context, for the presentation of Czech art outside the country and especially for the future of art. Our criteria did not…
My Career in Poetry or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Institution My Career in Poetry or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Institution
An American poet was invited to the White House in order to read his controversial plagiarized poetry. All tricked out and ready to do it his way, he comes to the “scandalous” realization that nothing bothers anyone anymore, and instead of banging your head against the wall it is better to build you own walls or at least little fences.

Who is S.d.Ch? A person of many interests, active in various fields—literature, theater—known for his comics and collages in the art field. A poet and playwright foremost. A loner by nature and determination, his work doesn’t meet the current trends. He always puts forth personal enunciation, although its inner structure can get very complicated. It’s pleasant that he is a normal person and a…

We are the fifth global party! Pítr Dragota and Viki Shock, Fragmenty geniality / Fragments of Charisma, May and June 1997. When Viki came to visit, it was only to show me some drawings and collages. It was only as an afterthought that he showed me the Czech samizdat publication from the late 1990s, THC Review. When he saw how it fascinated me, he panicked and insisted that THAT creation is…

Who’s Afraid of Motherhood?

Expanding the definition of “mother” is also a space for reducing pressure and for potential liberation.1 Carol Stabile The year was 2003, and in the deep forests of Lapák in the Kladno area, a woman in the later phase of pregnancy stopped along the path. As part of the “Artists in the Woods” exhibit, passers-by could catch a glimpse of her round belly, which she exposed especially for them in…
