Marie Štindlová was born in 1990 in Prague, where she now lives and works. She graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts, Brno University of Technology. In her work she considers the possibilities of text in visual art, often applying it in combination with architecture. She is a member of the group TMA, and together with Dana Balážová and Markéta Filipová they are involved in painting frescoes. Since 2014 she has been assistant curator at Fotograf Gallery.
Starting September 2017 on a residency at the Brno House of Arts. The output of her residency will be an exhibition at G99, held in January and February 2018.
Marie Štindlová was selected in cooperation with the Faculty of Fine Arts, Brno University of Technology for the so-called “Successful Graduate Studio”. She has been in residency at the House of Arts since the beginning of September 2017.
The purpose of the Successful Graduate Studio is to support artists at the very beginning of their careers. After their graduation at the Faculty of Fine Arts, Brno University of Technology they obtain a studio, a residential apartment and a scholarship – all this for a period of six months. In the second half of their residency, an exhibition of the artists’ work is organised, aimed at facilitating their entry to the art scene.
The exhibition of Marie Štindlová is based on her long-standing interest in creating texts and the possibilities of their use in combination with artistic installations. This time, the artist has chosen to place the text in the exhibition format by means of drawings on large-scale canvases that she uses to section the space. Repeating objects in the drawings – spheres, cones, tubes – take us from the real world to a dreamlike, mysterious atmosphere of calmness and immobility. Unreal and oneiric objects floating above e.g. a frozen ocean invite the visitor to enter the “scene” of the exhibition, to get lost and wander through three-dimensional metaphysical space.
