Eva Koťátková: My Body Is Not an Island @ National Gallery Prague
07. 12 2022 - 04. 06 2023
In her work, Eva Koťátková combines objects, collages, costumes, and texts into vast, playful, poetic, and often performative installations, to suggest how deeply our personal lives are swayed by our social environment with its codes and norms. This sway is materialized by complex machineries that constrain the body, but also hold possibilities for its transformation. Taking its cue from theatrical devices, a critique of psychiatric ethos, and certain forms of experimental education, Koťátková’s work develops in tight connection with narratives – a narration in fragments, scattered across the exhibition, that make up the image of the world.
