Lucie Mičíková

Lucie Mičíková was born in 1986 in Tábor. The artistic practice of Lucie Mičíková is rooted in memory and association. Interested in architecture, and inspired by Gaston Bachelard's La Poétique de l'Espace, Mičíková's personal installations create a dream-like, utopian, memory-space. She draws on her own experience and writing to investigate the process of looking; her ephemeral works are often subtle interventions into the nature of things. In collage, her use of found objects create a surreal, pictorial landscape. Paper nests are photographed and photocopied, rendering an object into a flat plane. Distorting paper with paper through layers of action.
