Text über den Künstler - English
Anetta Mona Chişa & Lucia Tkáčová have been working together since 2000. They explore gender relations as well as their role of Eastern European artists in a Western-dominated art world.
Their projects are often based on contextual interpretation of art from Eastern Europe and its stereotypical mode of representation, derived from a grid of geopolitical relations. Playing with the concept of access to different forms of power, the artists refer to the typical situation in post-communist New Europe, while, on the other hand, they are deconstructing society’s icons and habits, revealing their basic economic fundaments and functioning.
Latterly they focus on formulating methods that can be applied to forgotten segments of historical facts and events. The social, personal, historical and political get ultimately unified while memory and oblivion are paired, forgotten moments of life awarded and the sense of the whole lot discredited.
With videos, installations, textual works, and performances they refract consumer expectations and trigger processes of reflection about gender questions, the art market, and making art.
