Jana Želibská is the artist selected to represent Czech and Slovak Pavilion at the upcoming Venice Biennale 2017 that will run from the 13th of May to November 26th.
The project is entitled “Swan Song: Now” a multimedia installation based on a continous series of contrasts, the monumental versus particular notions, the poetic versus banal ideas, the sublime versus vernacular impressions. The artist, worldwide renowned for her middle 60s environment installations, uses her mindful approach to investigate this post- truth era, in which we are immersed.
The Swang Song: Now offers an intriguing experience of blurred physical and mental space while involving the contemplation on human time as the meta-subject of the work.
The show is curated by Lucia Gregorová Stach.
