Iveta Schovancová

Iveta Schovancová (*1992) is a graduate of the Photography Studio at the Academy of Arts and Crafts in Prague and the New Media Studio II at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. She works with technical images, objects, embroidery and installation. The basic themes of her work are proximity, distance and obstacles in communication between people and the transmission of information in non-verbal (visual and other) ways. She treats specific themes, often based on her own experience, with an emphasis on consistency of method, focus of process, and openness to a variety of outcomes. Iveta transfers her experience of creating a photographic image into thinking about the object and translates the conflict in space into the surface. Attention to craftsmanship and generosity of presentation allows for layering, which itself often becomes a theme.
