Slovak artist opens show in Vienna

YOUNG Slovak artist Oľga Paštéková, 28, currently has an exhibition called Phantoms and Other Friends showing in Vienna. In her works, shadows have become more interesting and attractive than the objects they belong to. Paštéková seeks to catch them, hold them and fix them – which is about as easy as stopping life, or time.

YOUNG Slovak artist Oľga Paštéková, 28, currently has an exhibition called Phantoms and Other Friends showing in Vienna. In her works, shadows have become more interesting and attractive than the objects they belong to. Paštéková seeks to catch them, hold them and fix them – which is about as easy as stopping life, or time.

The ‘shadow’ exhibition, curated by Adina Eckert, runs until June 29 in the Kunstforum (Art Forum) Ebendorf Raumacht on Ebensdorfer Street, Vienna, between 9:00 and 20:00 on weekdays.
