I am an artist and scenic designer located in Prague, Czech Republic.

 
What was the genesis of my knitted sculptures? I made the very first knitted work, „A Tree in Cardigan“ for the Finále Plzeň Film Festival (2016). To create a cardigan for a tree, I recycled second-hand jumpers and cardigans and changed them into the entirely new shape. Consequently, the street happenings have become a passion for me! „A Tree in Cardigan“ was followed by the first knitted sculpture. The staff from the National Theatre in Prague had an idea to transform the old bronze statue Znovuzrození (Rebirt, 1983) by Josef Malejovský, standing at Václav Havel Square (known also as piazetta) into something more appealing. From the beginning, I was thinking about an interesting female figure connected somehow with the world of art. When I was looking for the yarns that would match all those wonderful shades of gold and blue that we can see on the painting, I randomly found the antique crocheted blankets that my grandmother created for herself that wonderfully fit into my design.

Apparently, in our family coming from the South Moravian region, there is a long tradition of knitting and crocheting, that I revive for the
purposes of my knitted sculptures. Thank you, granny, for your inspiration! I should emphasize, though, that none of my sculptures would exist without the help of Lenka, Marta, Jiřina, and Jarmila. Thank you so much for everything you did to make my knitted sculptures alive!
