Veronika Vlková (CZ)
4. 8. 2020 – 10. 9. 2020
The work of Veronika Vlková (*1985) involves the communicating of fantastic stories and dream visions. The artist has long shuttled between the media of static and moving images, objects, installations and music performances. Her distinctive visual language presents an absorbing and associative play for the viewer, in the centre of which the decline or even the disintegration of structures always contains potential for rebirth into something new and fulfilling. Through her spiritually-informed approach to both art and life she enhances post-apocalyptic debates with a dose of trust in the autonomous power of the individual and society and in the power environment that surrounds us. These open arms of communicated stimuli have inspired the artist’s long-term collaboration with the musician Kateřina Koutná, the illustrator Jan Šrámek and the filmmaker Magdaléna Bažantová.
