Eva Kotatkova: A Storyteller's Inadequacy
Modern Art Oxford and the Czech Centre London present the first UK solo exhibition of Eva Kotatkova’s varied conceptual work featuring the most prolific performance based works to date. Kotatkova creates works that are proposals for living in an awkward age, blueprints for difficulties that must be overcome in order to explore the limits of human relationships and behaviour. The exhibition is curated by David Thorp.
More about the event at the Modern Art Oxford website
Eva Kotatkova (born
1982 in Prague) studied at the Prague Academy of Fine Arts, Prague Academy of
Applied Arts, San Francisco Art Institute and Akademie Bildende Kunst Wien from
2002-2007. In 2007 - at the age of 25 - she became the youngest artist ever to
be awarded the Jindrich Chalupecky Award for young artists in the Czech
Republic. The basic techniques that Kotátková uses in her work are drawing -
her many drawings are initially created without a set intention, which only
later is revealed in the final form and content - and video or photographed
performances, which could be characterised by their playful exploration of the
artists immediate environment and society.
Eva Kotatkova exhibits extensively internationally and in the Czech Republic and her work is included in numerous private and public collections.
