About the artist:
Monika Horčicová (1988) was born in Prague and currently resides in Brno. She creates complex sculptures using 3D printing technology and polyester resin. The themes approached by the artist are a metaphor for death and life, a reflection on mortality and perhaps immortality, resulting from an unceasing interest in the human body and its multiple possibilities of representation. Horčicová graduated at the Faculty of Fine Arts at Brno University of Technology , Department of Figurative Sculpture. She has held several solo exhibitions throughout the Czech Republic and has been part of many group exhibitions throughout the world, including New York, Paris, Switzerland and London.

"Since my son was born, the topics of pregnancy, breastfeeding and motherhood have been reflected in my artwork. I always thought in front of my child that I would definitely not do this. But becoming a mother changed me and it was suddenly the most important role and so it had to be reflected in my artwork.I also fully realized that doing any form of art is very important to me, I prefer to sacrifice sleep so that I can work on my own for at least a while. Of course, I'm chasing less than I would like, I've started a lot of things and I can't go back to them in my mother's dismay and even catch up with them."
