The gallery has loaned to Lafayette Anticipations artworks by Czech artist Anna Zemánková for the exhibition Beyond. Rituals for a New World, which will be held there from February 15 to May 14, 2023.

The group show brings together some twenty artists of all generations, transforming the space into an initiatory journey marked by works evoking archaic and contemporary rituals, both individual and collective. It is ceremonies, gestures, objects, sounds and crafts related to the energy of the Earth and the living that are then presented.

Curated by Agnes Gryczkowska.

Anna Zemánková

It was in the early 1960s that this Moravian woman began producing a body of work for which her humble background had not prepared her and which responded strikingly to injunctions from the innermost depths. Thus, at a time when the demons of the night were still competing with the seminal iridescence of dawn, she would gather strange flowers in her mind before drawing them forth on 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, so much so that in 2013 she was honored at the 55th Venice Biennale before an important group of her works joined the collections of the Centre Pompidou and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts in 2020.
