Work from her oeuvre.
“Marketa Othova’s large-scale black-and-white photographs are exhibited as suites of images that create a lyrical narrative of nomadism, charting her travels between her native Prague and cities beyond. They are captured moments of transit: a glance from the window of a car or a train or a moment caught while quickly moving through the open landscape or absentmindedly walking a city street. The surface of reality, captured 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.” – Jiri Svestka Gallery
