Curated by Lenka Klodová

Zigová’s significant minimalist video work CHe(a)r deals with the meaning of a chair as a symbol of social and power status. In her video-performance the author conquers the physical limitations of her own body and the balance of the chair itself – a chair that in various spaces takes on (or supports) various functions and positions. Reaching the highest position (of the chair and/or the hierarchical structure) is sometimes impossible, staying at the peak is unsustainable.
