Sabina Knetlová

Sabina Knetlová's concrete sculptures are created using traditional sculptural techniques, but they go from descriptive to stylistic principles, which should primarily affect the situation of the figure. It is essential to link it with the space, to which it usually actively responds, and thus it becomes a part of it precisely as a mover of a specifically played narrative. The author experiments with contrasts of plastic forms. The basic material is concrete pressed into plaster molds, the surface of which it leaves raw open after removing the hull. The flexibility of rubber hoses or the austerity of prefabricated buildings oppose it. The combination of these forms creates an internal compositional tension of the work. At the same time, there is a "thematized" civilizational contrast between sculptural modeling of shape and industrially produced elements, ie the moment that is the interface of human presence as a gesture and human presence as an act of serial industrial production.
