Anna Hulačová: Eating Planet (teaser)
From 4 August 2021 House of Arts Brno will open three new exhibitions - Other Things Held Constant by Jaromír Novotný, Eating Planet by Anna Hulačová and A Thirst for the Infinite by Bohuslava Olešová. We present three short teasers about the upcoming exhibitions before the visitors will get to visit them personally. All exhibitions will be opened with vernissage on the same day - 3rd August 2021 at 6 pm.
Anna Hulačová has achieved a unique position on the Czech and international contemporary art scene with her original approach to the medium of figurative sculpture. In her work she uses traditional materials - wood, wax or ceramics - but also concrete, which for her represents a symbol of civilisation or urban folklore. Her use of traditional, artisan techniques, along with references to folk art, spirituality or interwar modernist artistic styles, are translated into a distinctive artistic statement that appeals for its comprehensibility and accessibility.
The exhibition in the Procházka Hall will present the latest set of sculptures and sculptural groups reflecting the current condition of agriculture, the deepening ecological and environmental crisis and the state of alienation between man and the land. Stylised human figures, devoid of their individual features, merge with the machines they operate, coalescing into a new hybrid entity. The exhibition will run following a shortened schedule from August 4 to September 19, 2021 as the sculptures will travel to the Art Encounters biennial in Romania after the exhibition ends.
