Sabina Knetlová

Sabina Knetlová (* 1996) born in Jaroměř, lives and works in Ostrava. Her sculptural work is formally defined by working with concrete and supplied material. In this approach, she creates a consistent body of work, within which the themes relate to personal views of her surroundings and her grasp of them.

Even ordinary things take on a different complexion, logic, sensitivity and meaning. Sabina Knetlová can perceive such shifts in everyday life, but she can also capture, tie together, and interpret them almost figuratively. It is not by chance that she is perhaps the most outstanding Czech sculptor of the youngest generation at the moment. Her work references different directions, often situated in a strange visual intersection of archetypal idols, Moorean tradition and Japanese anime. In a sense, they also bear the hallmarks of indigenous brutalism that "corresponds to the society of mass production and draws on the intricate and powerful forces of gritty poetry." Likewise, it fulfills the requirement of a memorable image or a clear expression of the material.
