ELIŠKA ČABALOVÁ / Places & Books

26. 10. 2021

Guided tour with curator or author (only in Czech).

Places. For Eliška Čabalová, places are important for many reasons. The place of her childhood is the town of Valašské Meziříčí, and today she lives on Ostrava’s unique “Jubilee” housing estate. The atmosphere of these places, and the changes they have experienced, are captured in the graphic pieces exhibited here. This is not a sentimental or nostalgic view, but rather a sensitive evaluation. Čabalová’s sensitivity, her ability to see below the surface, her rejection of simple and obvious interpretations, and the acuteness of her sensory perception make her work one big palindrome.
Books. Eliška Čabalová has an iconic status within this demanding craft. The exhibition presents a collection of original and unique books handmade by her. Her bravura technique enables her to transcend the boundaries of decorative arts, reaching into the territory of free sculpture – as can be seen in the pieces from the cycle “Golden Books”. The exhibition also includes models capturing the historical development of bookbinding, aptly titled “Extinct Forms”.
