«Book, Architecture, Fantasy»

Using a book of photography as a source of visualization material
to set the effecting of objects into space. The artist depicted
the possible objects or spatial interventions in a photo book.
She tries to imagine which objects or situations could occur
there, with respect to their possible effectuation. It is therefore
a kind of utopic imagination or recreation of reality. The book
serves as a tool to visualize a given situation – an object in
space, replacing Photoshop graphic software.

In one of the books of “History and Present of Prague”, the
drawings were attacking old disused edifices in the center of
Prague that became victims of corruption after the fall of communism
in Czechia, becoming dilapidated in the city center with
no owner. The artist drew attention to them by painting
a supporting construction to the front facade of the building or setting
hefty tunnels in the center of the square. Each intervention was
flirting slightly with topical political and social issues.

Another book “Fest-Und Wohnraume, Barok bis Klassizismus“
dedicated to baroque and classicist interiors depicted spaces
that have vanished in photography. In those drawings, the
artist focused on the contrast between the richly decorative
elements of stuccos and the simple minimalist shape of the
objects, often levitating, or placed in a composition amidst
the space being photographed. The book is the only piece of
evidence of the interior existence, with the objects being effected
through visualization drawing only.

On the contrary, in some other books including “Sculpturschweiz”,
she distorted the reality and denied their existence by repainting
the sculptures with white. This is how she erased their
appearance and their existence. It is a personal stance of an
artist responding to the objects in the books and a certain display
of vandalism – transforming things to one’s own image. The
books on their own received a value not only of a sketchbook,
but they became an independent artwork in the first place.
