 IDA KVETNY

Kvetny is, among others, inspired by the computer games she played as a child. By watching her sculptures, drawings and paintings long enough, it virtually feels like being led to the “next level”. It works as a limbo with no start or ending, but which involves the viewer in a lavish visual landscape that leads into new areas and opens for new understandings. Perhaps this is how visual arts respond to literature’s stream of consciousness? It is the journey of the subject and not the details of the motif that is in focus. It is as if the artist places the viewer in a riddle with clues in all directions, revealing no apparent meaning and leading everywhere. But what might seem chaotic at first glance is composed by figurative and narrative elements that are slowly deciphered when looking at the motif.
