Anna K.E.’s background as a ballerina informs her artistic practice, which concerns the relationship between objects and their environment, and how the latter can often define or limit the former.
Jiří Kovanda (1953) is one of the most prominent figures in contemporary Czech art. He achieved international acclaim particularly with his events and interventions dating from the 1970s and ´80s. J. Kovanda´s works are represented at prestigious art exhibitions internationally recently, for example, gb agency Paris, Progetti per l’Arte, Firenze, Narodni Gallery Prague, National Museum of Contemporary Art in Bucharest, Daadgalerie in Berlin, Museo Reina Sofia – Palacio de Cristal in Madrid, Tate Modern in London. In addition to maintaining an active, international career as an artist, he is also a respected educator as he continues to influence and encourage generations of emerging artists.
