We’re loving the work of New York City-based artist Radka Salcmannova, who recently collaborated with fashion designer Carolina Sarria during New York Fashion Week for an installation showcase Sarria’s S/S16 collection: Deep Is Never Enough. The installation was based on the collection of images below.
Salcmannova is a triple threat creative artist, designer, and film maker who has worked with Matthew Barney, Marian Sell and Leo Kuelbs. Born in 1986 in Prague, where she studied at the Institutes of Art and Design, and Architecture, respectively, before moving to New York City for a stint at the School of Visual Arts.
“Mixing different media allows me to transgress categories that traditionally defines a work of art,” she said. “The viewer is never quite certain of what she is seeing. There is always doubt. Photography looks like paint, the photograph’s object is sculptural. Paint resembles photography, and photography is a static-filled moment of video or motion. Every piece is a performance, a record of a moment as well.” The video above is entitled “Decomposition and Transcendence” and will appear as part of an installation with Leo Kuelbs LIGHT YEAR 11 – March 3rd and 4th. MINY Media Center by IFP (30 John St, DUMBO).
