On the occasion of Paris+ by Art Basel, the gallery is presenting, for the first time, a museal selection consisting of artworks from the most significant period of Anna Zemánková - the iconic large pastels from the 1960s and 1970s - and more sophisticated drawings which include textile collage, embossing, or paper cutouts.

The Venice Biennale (curated by Massimiliano Gioni) in 2013 transformed Anna Zemánková from an iconic figure of art brut to an artist adored by the contemporary art world. Her works have joined countless collections, including those of the Centre Pompidou and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and in recent years have been shown in major exhibitions including those at the New Museum (NYC), the Hyogo Museum (Kobe), Lafayette Anticipations (Paris) and the Rudolfinum (Prague).

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.
