Denisa Lehocká

Denisa Lehocká developed a "poetics of conciseness" in her work, which seems as light as it is ephemeral and deals with the manifold and opaque relationships between objects and subjects, between the real and the imaginary. Despite the haptic appearance and playfulness of her objects, drawings, pictures, and sculptures, her works are bound to an analytical principle and hold a balance between abstraction and narrative.
Lehocká's object constellations are the sediment of a tedious artistic production process, which begins initially with a concrete method of relating to the object and then proceeds to work away from it by exploring the infinite combinability of graphic elements. With these anthropomorphic bodies she develops spatial sculptural installations (“spatial collages,” as she calls them), with special attention to the way they inhabit the given space. Her works are levitating materializations of the so-called immaterial and representations of deep subjectivity and the ephemeral.
