Barbora Zentková & Julia Gryboś
Barbora Zentková & Julia Gryboś received the 2016 Oskar Cepan award at the SNP for their inter media and collaborative approach. Since the start of their collaboration (the artists met as students at the University of Ostrava where they studied painting), their guiding principle is “their interest in the limits of an image, in the possibilities of depiction and extension of visual codes beyond the scope of the image itself: in the area of context”.
“We shared from the start a deep interest in the medium of painting which led us to develop intense forms of cooperation. Today our work focuses on complex units, sound being primary. We examine notions of time, surface, repetition, deepness of image. We work with questions of reduction of components in relation to given space and its character.
