Dana Zámečníková – 4x Storm

Starting September, 19 do pay us visit at Galerie Kuzebauch and explore the exhibition of the one and only Dana Zámečníková. The exhibition ends November, 19 2018.

It is Claude Vernet’s famous painting „Storm on the Mediterranean sea“ that forms the basis of her site-specific installation. The reason? For years, print of this painting hung above her bed in the home of her parents, thus becoming an indelible part of her world.

Zámečníková studied during the 1960s and the 1970s at Czech Technical University and the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. Her background in architecture is visible in her utilisation of the exhibition space as a kind of notional frame, into which one is invited to step in. The entire exhibition is also influenced by time of day and weather conditions.

The works of Dana Zámečníková form a part of over thirty prestigious public collections across Europe, Asia, America and Australia. These include The Corning Museum of Glass, The Metropolitan Museum in New York, The Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Museè des Arts Dècoratifs in Paris. Very few Czech glass artist have managed to attain such recognition and prestige abroad.

But Zámečníková is far from resting on her laurels, constantly honing the potential of her artistic output, including the incorporation of modern technologies.
