Eva Koťátková / What Does a Turtle Feel Through the Carapace?
Empathy and the ability to understand the situation of others is the theme of Eva Koťátková’s exhibition. Her dramatic stagings are reminiscent of dreamy states and curio cabinets with references to both historical images and contemporary culture. With sculpture, collages, drawings, text, sound and suggestive scenography, she examines what evokes emotions and how they help us connect with each other beyond categorical subdivisions and hierarchies.
Eva Koťátková (b. 1982, Prague) is based in Prague, Czechia. She has exhibited in leading museums, art institutions and biennials worldwide. This exhibition at Bildmuseet will present the artist in Sweden for the first time.
