Subheadlinenew works by Czech sculptor Ivana Pavlickova aka @ivy_grams
GOLD+BETON presents: DRIP by Ivana Pavlickova Ceramic Sculptures, Sugarcollage, Wallpainting On view 24/7 through the window In her first solo exhibition in Cologne, Ivana Pavlickova presents a complex, site- and time-specific installation on power structures, the feminine, and constructed virtual identities. On view are glazed, detailed ceramic sculptures as a bittersweet floor collage with references to racism, abuse of power and resources / human exploitation in current and historical contexts. Simultaneously a surge of empowerment runs through the exposure of hyperfeminine female figures and feminized Pokemons. Avatars that fit perfectly into the artist's virtual fantasy world. Ivana Pavlickova (*1990 Hranice na Moravě, CZ) studied sculpture with Michal Gabriel and Martin Honert, among others. After some years in Dresden, she lives in Cologne since 2020 where her work focuses increasingly in the disciplines of research and new media. ++ Alongside the exhibition, a limited postcard edition will be released. ++ Drip is the first part of the exhibition series WELL* am Ebertplatz, which is realized in cooperation with Gemeinde Köln and Mouches Volantes and with the support of Neustart Kultur of the Stiftung Kunstfonds. More information about WELL* am Ebertplatz will follow soon.
