2020, cooperation with Nela Britanakova at Šachta Gallery curated by Ján Gajdušek, Prague, CZ / ceramics, photography, fabric
Veronika Čechmánková and Nela Britaňáková transfer the topic of genetic engineering, genetic mutations and man-made living organisms to a joint installation consisting of works in which they connect their closest media – ceramics and photography. Just as scientists work with mutations and artificial modifications of nature, the authors use as part of their objects and paintings floral motifs inspired by the genetically modified calla plant in the color of royal blue, which they decompose, connect, bend or otherwise change. These principles appear in various forms by which the authors transform the original motif into a number of new variants and modifications. The surface enters the space here and is absorbed back by it, as well as the mutual relations between the used media - natural transitions of color shades and surface structures, as well as mutual contact between individual objects.
