We are delighted to present our third solo exhibition of works by Jitka Hanzlová at Mai 36 Galerie. The artist’s wide-ranging photographic oeuvre, which evolved between the two cultural systems of East and West, reflects personal and overarching historical processes of transformation.
The exhibition at Mai 36 Galerie focuses on works from the new series WATER and conceptualizes these as an integral part of the artist’s earlier and current serial work. In her latest series, Hanzlová expands on her themes by complementing them with aspects of the contemporary debate about resources, and by exploring the various ways in which the material, seemingly open to interpretation, manifests itself in seemingly self-evident ways, in the form of air, water, and ice. In addition, individual works from the series Brixton, Cotton Rose, Flowers, Hier, Horse, Tonga and the earlier series Rokytník, Bewohner and Forest are also being shown for the first time as freely juxtaposed pieces within an exhibition context, rather than as a series.
