Opening- 13. 12. 2019

Karlin Studios, Prvního pluku 2, Praha 8

Marble works. In the shape of the objects, Sári Ember reduces the shapes of the face to its limits of recognition, led by her interest in the classical genre of portraiture. Working with materials with a strong symbolic value, and quoting forms from a big variety of references, she uses the narrative capacity of constellations of objects. The installation offers interpretations of parallel stories of memories, traditions, and rituals. Starting from personal and collective stories, the works aim to raise questions on our dependence on roles, idols and objects of the past.

The exhibition is supported by Leopold Bloom Award and Maurice Ward Art Handling.
