Klára Hosnedová (born 1990, Uherské Hradiště) graduated with an MgA from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. Her work encompasses a variety of media including photography, sculpture, furniture, embroidery, and site-specific installation. She is interested in the relationship between the human body and architecture. Her process starts with an in-depth study of a specific site and time – the history, the architecture and materials, and the people who inhabited the space.  From this starting point, she develops a new narrative that is manifested in staged photo shoots with models, selected images of which are then embedded into materially rich installations made up of hand-worked embroidery, stone, metal, glass, concrete and epoxy. All the hand embroidery is executed by the artist herself, who designs and oversees the production of the other parts of the installation – most recently working closely with glass masters from the world-renowned glass workshops in Nový Bor, Czech Republic.
