Ten works by Anna Zemánková on loan from the gallery will be shown alongside those of Marinette Cueco and Pistil Paeonia at the Lacoux Contemporary Art Center (France).

Curator Julie Crenn has conceived become native again as a conversation between three artists who share an intimate relationship with the plant world, with the knowledge and power of plants. Three artists who carry an acute awareness of their belonging to the living. Their works are extensions of powerful links with the paths, the physical and mental paths. They act in their places by collaborating with the living, its forces, its visible and invisible part.

Anna Zemankova

It was in the early 60s that this humble Moravian began to produce work for which her condition had not prepared her, responding strikingly to injunctions from the depths. Thus, at a time when the demons of the night were still vying for the seminal iridescence of dawn, she would pick strange flowers in her mind, to make them protrude from the paper. “I grow flowers that don’t grow anywhere else”, she used to say. Anna Zemánková is already an established figure in the art brut, having been honored in 2013 at the 55th Venice Biennale, before a significant body of her work joined the collections of the Centre Pompidou, and the collections of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts in 2020. In 2024, his works will be presented for the second time at the Venice Biennale, curated by Adriano Pedrosa.
