Eva Kotátková

Eva Kotátková (born 1982 in Prague) studied at the Prague Academy of Fine Arts, Prague Academy of Applied Arts, San Francisco Art Institute and Akademie Bildende Kunst Wien from 2002-2007. In 2007 - at the age of 25 - she became the youngest artist ever to be awarded the Jindrich Chalupecky Award for young artists in the Czech Republic. The basic techniques that Kotátková uses in her work are drawing - her many drawings are initially created without a set intention, which only later is revealed in the final form and content - and video or photographed performances, which could be characterised by their playful exploration of the artists immediate environment and society.
