  • Czech Republic (b. 1986 in Frýdek-místek)
  • Currently in Ostrava, Czech Republic.
  • My work deals with a truth. A truth as an absolute value, truth as being everyday part of one´s life, a truth as an visionary system declared by modernistic -isms. I create my own language from geometric shapes.

    Complexes | 2012 - 2014

Complexes are monoscopes in space. They also arise from sentences which determine their final form. However, in this case, the sentences describe the complexes I had as an adolescent, such as “I am ugly” or “I can´t play football”. A complex is a certain structure in the human mind, and if we want to break it, we must destroy it. That´s why the objects resemble architectural designs – complexes of buildings. Sometimes, a complex is like a fungus that grows through our minds. To create this analogy, I used foam, which has fungus-like texture.
