until 27.05. | #3464ARTatBerlin | Peres Projects shows from 29. April 2022 the exhibition am I dead yet by the artist Stanislava Kovalcikova.
Stanislava Kovalcikova’s (b. 1988 in Czechoslovakia) elegiac canvases which depict human figures, are studies of painting itself. Drawing on contemporary and historical perspectives of the human figure, her work directly references art historical styles.
“If you compare it to organic processes like mushrooms under the earth, that all of a sudden pop out, but which is way smaller than the entire system. And sometimes I really have to wait for years, I know if I do it too early then I ruin the painting”
Equally, Kovalcikova’s work operates through a tradition of Eastern orthodox mysticism. An exploration of the figure as an icon, the individual psychic experience portrayed in her work is always referential to something larger – an archetype from a collective narrative.
