Karíma Al-Mukhtarová, Martin Pondělíček – Extraordinary Ordinariness
Karíma Al-Mukhtarová and Martin Pondělíček get to their identities through meditative to ritual ways of their work. They find cracks in a multi-layered space and seep through them deeper and deeper. Both work tirelessly in techniques that require time, precision and patience. They push the boundaries of proven techniques. Both authors are united by the multi-layered nature of their artworks. There is irony behind the beauty, chaos behind the order, humor behind the seriousness. Due to overlapping forms, their works communicate, complement or even merge to such an extent that authorship cannot be determined.
