Art Brut . Anatomia Metamorphosis . Japan




Art Brut. Anatomia Metamorphosis. Lubos Plny, Anna Zemankova, exh. cat. [Kobe, Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art, 4th February – 25thMarch, 2012; Hiroshima, Museum of Contemporary Art, 26th May – 6th July 2012], Kobe, Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art, 2012.

At first glance, two very different works, yet two artistic projects linked by a shared preoccupation as both creators explore anatomical metamorphosis. Zemankova and Plny, each in their own way, reorganize, explore and play with the transformation of the form and structure of the human body, which becomes, during this  process of transfiguration, a chimera of heterogeneous qualities, bright and glorious  in the work of Anna, dissected and recomposed in the case of Lubos.

The exhibition and the book also present several artists of art brut featured in the film Rouge Ciel. An Essay on Art Brut directed by Bruno Decharme.
