Eva Kot’átková in conversation with Kari Conte
Artist Eva Kot’átková will discuss her ISCP solo exhibition ERROR with curator Kari Conte. Kot’átková will also speak about her recently published monograph Pictorial Atlas of a Girl Who Cut a Library into Pieces, which reflects her obsession with reshaping and hijacking pre-existing photographic images.
ERROR, on view at ISCP through April 19th, focuses on relationships between human bodies and the oppressive institutional structures that sometimes surround them, in a new video and series of collages and sculptures. Kot’átková is interested in the stories or cases of individuals who–for various reasons−are unable to integrate themselves into social structures. They become secluded, isolated, and handicapped by their circumstances, or develop alternative means to communicate, often through objects, props and devices. Others build parallel identities to escape from reality into a constructed world. In such a world, people become subordinate to their own invented rules, and apply different communication patterns and new hierarchies to their everyday life.
