*1989 in works and lives in Ústí nad Labem and České Budějovice, Czech republic
Student of FAD UJEP – Department of Photography, prof. Pavel Baňka, Ústí nad Labem
Alžběta’s unconventional eye uncovers what was meant to stay hidden. No matter if she takes pictures in studio or in plain air, it is not uncommon in her work, that it is darkness and void, which speaks loudest. She has mastered visual language that is not only innovative, but also timeless. In search of comfort in solitude, she bravely comments on contemporary unease of personal relationships and attitudes. She preferably works with large format camera, putting all the advantages of analogue process in good use.

The title of this exhibition project – “Medium Loci” is a combination of words medium and genius loci. We use it this way to point out the fact that place or region itself, through it’s genuine qualities can represent visual medium.
We have decided to deny the general concept of transporting the same artworks around several art venues and showing them over and over. Instead, we prepare the entire show specifically for the selected location. We visit it in advance so we can react in our personal way. Exhibition usually consists of photographs, video installations and figurative reactions to the gallery space.
In each city, artists dig in local history,current political and cultural situation. This way, they often provide local people with new point of view, both socially and aesthetically.
