I was dreaming about you being a melon and I ate you
Recreation garden, Humpolec, 2020
Daniela Baráčková is an artist of many forms and topics – events, installations and paintings give stories shapes and symbolic gestures, and their surprisingly material metaphor usage is open to many different interpretations. The artist grasps social issues with her distinctive and slightly ironic psychomotor agitation, sometimes even with theatrical physical employment. It creates deliberate tension between the way of narration, well worked-out form and multivocal contents and contracts between the familiar and unexpected point of view.
