Exhibition Glass Rituals will showcase four distinctive Czech glass artists. The selection aims to show the diversity with which glassmakers approach their creation. The curatorial selection provides a comprehensive picture of contemporary Czech studio-glass created by what is often labelled as the “fairer sex” through intergenerational dialogue of the artists.
Klára Horáčková experiments with glass and transforms it into delicate forms. She uses her art to put forward a vision of evolution – biomorphic and almost other worldly objects from fused glass, resembling rock formations. Eva Eisler work is a manifestation of an intersection of the past and future with glass silhouettes referring to archetypal image of goddesses. The imagery stems from ancient rituals and fertility symbols. Lada Semecká tells a story through unique properties and origin of given material. Her glass paintings evoke fluidity and imagination while basalt stone objects emphasise its unique surface, resilience and resonance. Vladimíra Klumpar focuses on cast glass sculptures that are either inspired by geometric or biomorphic shapes. In her work light and the depth of space play crucial role.
