Karolína Juříková

My wide range of works oscillates on the edge of art and fashion as intentionally accentuates a dialogue between these two worlds. In works I deal with themes of the context of the relationship between humans and dress in contemporary society; whereby perceives fashion as a social narrative or a virus. Clothes are a medium of choice, which I use for questioning and subtle critique. My natural way of expression is to work with textiles and the typology of garments. Another important part of my work is implementing ethical and sustainable principles as the first rule of responsible artist.

Wars in your wardrobe

Study of archetypal meanings of clothes, hidden stories back in time about certain types of clothes. To use these narratives into creating artworks with deeper conceptual research in the meaning of items of clothing in contemporary society and their futuru. Perceived clothes as sociological narration more than a piece of fabric. Some types of clothes are more archetypal than the others and the work will focus on inner meanings and context of clothes which are nowadays eaten and forgotten by contemporary fast fashion monster. For example, the history of a parka jacket saying a lot about a culture, colonization, gender and political contexts of different decades.. And what about the future of these items of clothes?
