JT Bank collection’s group exhibition
Sep 7-10, 2023
Group exhibition organized by major Czech bank, who has extensive art collection, featuring artworks of 50 prominent Czech artists, widely recognized in the contemporary art scene. The venue, a baroque palace originally erected as a hospital for soldiers, served as the backdrop for the artistic showcase. My works are sculptures crafted from plants—specifically, from so-called "weed" or other flora dismissed by society as undesirable or inconsequential. Among these botanical specimens were the Giant Hogweed and ivy. Wooden objects underwent a transformative process involving copper, resulting in a chemical finish. This copper treatment bestowed upon the plants an unexpected value in the eyes of the beholder.
