Splendid Land, 2023

"Splendid Land evokes an amazing, magical, beautiful land. It is different from Promised Land, the Promised Land whose existence in most great stories places the old world religions (and not only them) in the faith of migrants. We don't have a promised land, we don't need to wait for it. It will not be given to us. We need to create it." Martina Vitkova (text for the exhibition Splendid Land, Art Patro Gallery, Hradec Králové /with Ondrej Bousek/ 2024)

In case of serious interest, it is possible to see "Splendid Land" in the studio:
