Miriama Kardosova will present a series of small-format paintings in the Sopa Gallery. These paintings represent a post-process output of semi-improvised private events. Painting as a medium remains the basic means of expression. Performance is the equivalent of expression, gesture, and musical expression which Kardošová applies also to the painting medium. By combining the performance sketch, the movable (digital) image with the commodity of the hanging image as the final and material artefact, the author achieves a synergetic effect. Kardošová primarily focuses on the topics that touch still unexplored aspects of body and flesh, own ontology and Alter Ego, which she explores through visual culture, different social stereotypes or gender positions.

Miriama Kardošová (1988) is a representative of the young generation of Slovak painting. She graduated from Art studio (contemporary art) program at the Faculty of Arts in Košice and from the Studio of intermedia art program under the guidance of doc. ak. mal. Jiří David at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague.

The exhibition was supported from public sources by the Arts Support Fund. The Arts Support Fund is the main partner of the project.
