"In her work, Lenka Glisníková presents an independent approach to photography and intermedia. The material and visual qualities of her work take the conceptual relationship to photography to a new level. Her projects easily keep up with the speed of social media and often explore technological developments on the borders of photography. Photography is deconstructed and reassembled into new forms; gradually taking on sculptural and corporeal qualities.” (jury statement)
Lenka Glisníková (1990) studied at Michal Kalhouse's studio of photography at the Faculty of Arts in Ostrava and completed her master's studies at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, at the studio of Alexandra Vajd and Martin Kohout. Glisníková actively draws on her experience with the medium of photography. She builds on her experience through the creation of installations and objects that highlight the consequences of changes in our contemporary lifestyle, resulting from unregulated technological progress. In her research, she revisits the impact of these new technologies on our society, the human body, our minds and emotions. Her interpretations present her view on technology as determining our way of working, resting, thinking and organising time.
She has exhibited in galleries such as Lítost, Fotograf Gallery and City Surfer Office in Prague. She was nominated for the 2019 STARTPOINT PRIZE for graduates of European art schools, where she received an honourable mention from the jury. Together with her colleague Karolina Matušková, with whom she works under the label shotby.us, she was nominated for the Czech Grand Design Award in the Photographer of the Year category in 2019. They won in this category in 2020.
