Romana Drdová (1987) graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague in 2017 (Studio of New Media I / Tomas Svoboda School). Her work, often in the media of object, photography and installation, is characterized by its pure aesthetic, often even transparency, and use of light, matter and emptiness combined with specific materials and techniques inspired by the context of visual arts as well as the world of fashion, technology and design. In a sensitive and metaphorical way, she deals with the theme of perception and human interaction at the time of “data smog.” She has introduced her work on solo exhibitions at National Gallery in Prague (2015), Karlin Studios (2015) and Meet Factory (2017) among others. She is a finalist of Jindřich Chalupecký Award 2017.
