MARKÉTA OTHOVÁ The comprehensive retrospective of this middle-generation artist (1968) will evaluate her approach to her medium. Although in terms of form, Othová’s work belongs to the tradition of Czech conceptual, archival, black-and-white photography (Michal Kalhous, Jasanský / Polák), it always maintains its intimate, diary-like character. Her concentration on the most mundane moments, neither staged, nor manipulated, shot in intervals and assembled into lyrical, melancholy series emphasizing the photographer’s voyeurist perspective gives Othová a specific and autonomous place within contemporary Czech art. She is one of the few Czech photographers who established themselves internationally and one of the few Czech artists to have been represented in large international exhibitions in the 1990s. Her oeuvre has yet to be thoroughly evaluated in the Czech Republic.
