Sights #2 Fall of the Meteorites
Klára Hosnedlová’s realistic embroideries explore societal pathologies as they crystalize in modern and contemporary design and architecture. Hosnedlová recuperates embroidery as a contemporary, technologically mediated image-making process. Archetypical depictions of femme figures captured in digital photography are transformed through a manual reduction of pixels. Rendered in silky threads on canvas, their hands and faces become a landscape of lighter and darker tones, dissolving into the sculptural frames made from materials found on-site of the photo-shoot.
