Klára Hosnedlová’s work explores historical sentiments as they crystallize in modern and contemporary architecture. Her sculptures and environments are indebted to Eastern Europe-an histories and the past collective mythologies.
The artist depicts half naked bodies draped with fragmentary moulds, or pseudoscientific rituals using smartphones, magnifying glasses and knives, or people holding perturbed cats. These embroideries are based on photographs of her friends perform-ing gnomic rites within architectural settings, as if probing the place, trying to make sense of it and connect with it from a position of alienated distance; and in the process setting up a distorted, dragging model of time.
