Anna Hulačová: Eating Planet

We cordially invite you to the opening of the exhibition Anna Hulačová: Eating Planet. The exhibition will be opened by Terezie Petišková, director of the House of Arts and curator Marika Svobodová.

The exhibition will showcase the latest works by the sculptor Anna Hulačová, who traditionally approaches her projects as complex installations for the specific exhibition space. For the Procházka Room of the Brno House of Arts she created a group of loosely composed concrete figurative sculptures thematising the motif of collaboration between man and technology, in particular agricultural and various other machines. Compared to her previous work where she was mainly concerned with the subject of collectivisation in relatively recent Czech history, in this case she examines the relationship at a more general level, balancing the utopian vision of a harmonious co-existence of nature and industry with the current situation of a world on the brink of dystopia. References to cultural history, be it ancient tradition, folklore motifs, art brut or inter-war modernism, particularly works by Otto Gutfreund and Ladislav Zívr, constitute the artist’s favourite repertory and form the reference points which enable us to reflect upon our present time. Hulačová's figurative sculptural work, emphasising the properties of the material employed, whether it is concrete, wood or wax, is an example that a traditional sculptural format can speak the language of contemporary art and express through it topical social issues.
