Lenka Záhorková

Lenka often balances between design, applied art forms and fine arts. Her works tend to be based on quest for parallels between the constructional/technological and the ideological perspective. Her works' topics include the cycle of life and the eternal cycle - the creation, extinction and renewal of objects. In addition, she also pursues her artistic and social project TAK TO BYLO.

She graduated from the Ceramics studio of Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design & Art, University of West Bohemia, studied product design and completed an internship at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk's in the sculpture studio. She has won several awards for her products, including two awards of the National Student Design Award, was selected for the Talents section at the Tendence fair in Frankfurt am Main and nominated for the Designblok'19 award for her TAK TO BYLO project. The same project won her the Empathy Award of Komerční banka and the National Gallery, in whose premises the exhibition of the same name took place in 2021-2022, right after the exhibition in the Slovak National Gallery. The pieces from the project can be found in the permanent collection of contemporary art of the Museum of Applied Arts of the Moravian Gallery in Brno.
