"Pavel Sterec has orchestrated rich research involved in social conditions, politicized nature and natural sciences. His work represents new forms of communication and activism." (jury statement)

Pavel Sterec (*1985) has studied at several studios at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and also a doctoral program at the Studio of Photography at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. His work is based on personal and social encounters and situations transformed into conceptual installations. These combine an interest in the reinterpretation of mythical and ritual objects and natural phenomena in the context of contemporary thought and an engaged criticism of the social and political status quo. Sterec has introduced his work at a number of exhibitions primarily in Central and Eastern Europe and participated in a number of prestigious residencies.
