Installation and video by Johana Střížková.

Johana Střížková (1984) studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and at the Cooper Union School of Art in New York. In 2016 she was a finalist of the Jindřich Chalupecký Award. The work of Střížková, which is centred around performance and videoperformance, as well as objects and photography, is a delicate appropriation of the physicality of man, his everyday tasks and the objects he manipulates and which surround him. The artist calls her own pure, minimal aesthetic, which portrays the (un)usual reality as a tender symbiosis of living and inanimate beings. Střížková has exhibited her work mainly in Czech independent galleries and institutions. She lives and works in Prague.
