About

Anetta Mona Chişa & Lucia Tkáčova's sculptures are geometric projections of extra-dimensional structures that are not normally experienced by human brains. The artists assemble this stuff of dreams (and geometry) from bones, a material that displaces it in time and thought: dystopian societies, circles of life, eternal salvations. The arrangements suggest that - just as two-dimensional ocular vision turns into three-dimensional perception with the aid of of a human brain - there isn't all that much missing between our experience of the explorable world and the next imaginable dimension.

At the heart of the collaboration between Chişa and Tkáčova is the quest to find a means of reconciling the political with the aesthetic validity of artistic expression. How does art articulate resistance and stimulate social change without diminishing its aesthetic power or facilitating its own instrumentalisation? The duo have pursued this question across a range of media, including film, installation, text, drawing, performance and sculpture.
