Ivana Králíková

  ABOUT

 

Born in Moravia (former Czechoslovakia) and based in Hässelby, Stockholm, Sweden,

cultural worker and artist Ivana Králíková was educated at the Royal Institute of Art,

Konstfack – University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, and

EMS – the Swedish National Centre for Electronic Music and Sound Art,

all in Stockholm, Sweden.

 

Králíková’s artistic practice is based in ceramics and includes sculpture, video,

performance, music, transgressive installations and hand-built environments.

The core question in her practice is how to relate to others in the modes of solitude

or at gatherings. She also draws on her personal experience of being an immigrant in

Sweden as a perspective to explore how cultures and identities are constructed.

Clay, a geological material bound to a geographical landscape, is used in her work as

language, a tool for responding to the unfamiliar surroundings and the unknown.

 

 

Králíková’s work has been exhibited in Sweden and abroad,

at institutions such as CCS Bard (solo exhibition, 2011) and Hessel Museum of Art (2013), USA;

VBKÖ – The Austrian Association of Women Artists (two-person exhibition, 2012),

Austria; Kunstindustrimuseet – The Norwegian Museum of Decorative Arts and Design (2012) and

UKS – the Young Artists’ Society (solo exhibition, 2016), Norway;

ArkDes – The Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design (2012), Iaspis (2012, 2013),

Blås och Knåda (solo exhibition, 2010), Tegen 2 (2011 initiated-social sculpture), Sweden;

and FUTURA (two-person exhibition, 2017), Czech Republic.

 

“Ceramics allow me to express with my hands various layers of my subconscious.

Explorations of and with clay also deal with receiving or understanding through the senses.

I have developed my own intuitive methods in many self-initiated and collaborative works,

through transgressive interventions constructed under high tempo from raw wet clay.

Thus, clay objects can be modified during the work process until they are completed,

and subsequently dried or re-used or partly fired. The results are often in-situ works,

constructing a shared space. My practice has continuously evolved from traditional

porcelain object-oriented production into larger projects and installations

seeking a social context to further investigate the relationship

between humans and materials, ceremonial objects and spaces.”
