Dorota Sadovská /SK/, Allanah Robins /IRL/ Spirituality14. 5. – 5. 9. 2021 Místo konání -1 Gallery Curator Lenka Sýkorová
Dorota Sadovská has created artwork for the Regional Gallery Spa Liberec -1, which focuses on canvas installations and a dialogue with the Irish-Swedish artist Alannh Robins, all this in the form of cut canvas, using the cut paper technique and searching for a transcendental perception of the world.
Dorota Sadovská is an established Slovak artist who entered the world of art as a solitaire in the 1990s. Since then, she has been happy to break down the typical scheme of hanging canvases and to use them instead in a space to create canvas installations. He also works with photography, video and drawing. Her artwork can be characterized by two thematic areas: the thematization of corporeality and the interest in Christian iconography. Dorota Sadovská graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava. Alannah Robins is an Irish intermedia artist who graduated from the National College of Art and Design in Dublin. She works in Ireland and Sweden. She believes that myth is truer than history. Her artwork is mostly based on the intuition and observation of her immediate surroundings.The curatorial concept is focused on drawing with overlaps to the intermedia artworks of the middle generation of artists. The exhibition presents two artists in a dialogue through artworks created specifically for the given space. Again, there is an emphasis on the complicated space and the use of its specifics for the benefit of the exhibition.
