Tomáš Džadoň (*1981) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava and the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. He spent a year at the Art Institute in Kankaanpää, Finland and went on residencies in Neue Galerie Graz and Center for Central European Architecture in Prague among others. In his work, he primarily addresses architecture using neoconceptual approaches. He explores past architectural forms and our relations to them while relativizing their usual perception. He deals with our concept of space in general, its transformations over the course of time and our existence in it – all that while mostly exploring Slovak national identity. Džadoň is a holder of the Cyprian Award from Young Art Biennial in Trnava and Essl Award 2007. In 2009, he was nominated for Slovakia’s Oskár Čepan Award besides Czech Republic’s Jindřich Chalupecký Award.
