About exhibition

Klára Štefanovičová discovers the world of grids and grid structures of the visible world. The grid as a structure is an artistic tool that imbues the subject with a meaningful message. The grid functions as a general sensitive perception. The grid … that is, the structure, as a transcribed image of what is seen, is actually an area that determines our view of the subject. This art process has a long history. It is the history of the use of grids, systems, structures, assemblies and logical compositions. Consistently composed grids prove authenticity and personal conviction when Grid-manuscript is the structure through which we see what is represented.

The grid is used in the creative work as an element of constructive vibration and “sensitiveness”; as an artistic activity in which the subject becomes a universal representation. It is graphic design as a subject, with which we strengthen the supporting points of artistic interpretation. By sensitively perceiving the grid, we reach a space in which the viewer listens to his inner voice, his inner “position”. The subject encrypted by the grid is like a level of the subconscious, beneath which unsuspected associations emerge. Artistic “Grid” is a screen through which we see more. It is a screen through which we see inside.

Štefanovičová’s work develops the artistic principles of a creative use of the grid in diverse forms. She applies the grid in connection with the content and message of her artistic messages –concepts.
