Mluv s ni
Marketa Othova

Marketa Othovas photographs are captured moments of transit: The surface of reality, detected and frozen in the photographic image, gives Othova a rich base upon which to create seemingly subconscious but highly evocative snapshot reminders of a past which seems only just beyond the reach of personal memory. The leaflet Mluv si ni was published in 2005 by Jiri Svestka Gallery and affiliates black-and-white photographs from the series of thirty-one photographs of Björk entitled Talk to Her (Mluv si ni).

Marketa Othovas installations of large black-and-white photographs, often using grids and linear sequences, combined with the occasional stand-alone photograph, destabilise and question traditional photography. Her juxtapositions of interiors, landscapes, and still lifes – edited from past and present photographs – create intriguing visual and temporal rhythms.
This catalogue is the first encompassing publication on her oeuvre. It was published 2010 in cooperation with Jiri Svestka Gallery in Prague and the Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König in Cologne.

With essays by Karel Cisar and Christina Vegh.
