Anna Hulačová’s expressive style combines the imaginative power of science fiction with ancient mythology, oriental thought, and traditional Czech culture and art. Her sculptures resemble extraterrestrial creations, in which organic and inorganic forms are mixed together, from living creatures to household electrical appliances. While referring to the art of the socialist era, in which healthy and beautiful bodies symbolized an ideal society, this seems to predict a future in which technological progress brings about radical social and ecological changes. Hulačová’s sculptures, combining artificial materials such as cement and aluminum with natural materials such as honeycombs and fresh flowers—occupying a space between organic and inorganic, historical and futuristic, cruel and caring—depict a world that could be understood as both utopian and dystopian.
