Anna Hulačová

"Anna Hulačová has obviously found a way to employ classic sculpture in current contexts – even with respect to its iconographic and symbolical meaning – without suppressing its quality of a three-dimensional artefact by the conceptual framework." (jury statement)

Anna Hulačová (*1984) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague at the Studio of Intermedia Work II / Jiří Příhoda School. In 2010, she has been to a study stay at the Korea National University of Arts in Seoul, South Korea. She is an extraordinary sculptor whose work revives traditional crafts, translating the inspiration found in ancient mythologies, eastern cultures as well as in Czech folk traditions and original Christian symbolism into the language of contemporary art. Her primarily figurative works embody an idiosyncratic aesthetics merging ancient idols, Gothic woodcarving and surface minimalism of graphic design and photography. Hulačová has introduced her work at many renowned Czech exhibition institutions such as the National Gallery in Prague, MeetFactory and Hunt Kastner Artworks. In 2014, the artist has been to a CEAAC residency in Strasbourg where she opens an exhibition of her works in January 2016.
