The first UK solo exhibition of Czech photographer Markéta Othová in the Photographers’ Gallery.
During the past 10 years Othová has made exciting and controversial in-roads in to the re-evaluation of the possibilities of black and white photography. Othová’s installations of photographs destabilise and question the traditional attributes of black and white photography. Her juxtapositions of interiors, landscapes, and still life’s create intriguing visual and temporal rhythms, adjusting the perspective onto her perceived subjects to the point that the nature and the possibility of knowing a subject through its representation becomes uncertain.
Othová now lives and works in Prague, Czech Republic. She has been exhibiting her photographs since 1990 and has been included in numerous group exhibitions such as Borders of Photography (1995), Prague House Photography and Kleine Kleinigkeit, Kunstahalle Basel (2002). She has also been included in exhibitions in Paris, Berlin, Leipzich, and Trieste. Solo exhibitions include Her Life (1998), The National Gallery in Prague, and A Perfect World, Institute of Contemporary Art, Dunaujvaros, Hungary.
8 June 2006 - Talk by the curator of the exhibition Clair Graffik and Karel Cisar about the context of Marketa Othová's work.
