2020: Barbora Zentková, Julia Gryboś: PORTFOLIO

Julia Gryboš (PL) and Barbora Zentková (SK) are an artistic duo, based in Berlin, working together since 2010. They made themselves known to wider audiences mainly in Slovakia, where they were awarded the Oskár Čepan Award for young artists in 2016. Besides solo shows in independent galleries and artist-run spaces, within the last couple of years they are showing work in more thematic group shows too. Their shared interest gradually evolved from the medium of painting to concentrated work with a specific space. Since the beginning of their collaboration the guiding principle was the interest in the limits of images, in the possibilities of depiction and extension of visual codes beyond the scope of the image itself: in the area of context. Today their interest is going towards creating site-specific complex environments, with a strong focus on the viewer's position in them, all this with an emphasis on the character of the given space. The unifying element of their commissions is a certain moment of collapse, decay, destruction that affects the various socio-economic aspects of our society.
