Exhibition curator: PhDr. Sylva Petrová
Zdenek Lhotsky is an extraordinary artist who seeks challenges others regard as dangerous in order to astonish everyone by mastering them. He is not interested in mainstream artistic movements and fashions, but prefers to go his own way. His interest in ornamentation and pattern or even both together are provocative.
At the moment Lhotsky’s company is ensuring the execution of a glass sarcophagus weighing several tons for the Danish Royal family. It is not just for this reason that the April 2016 edition of the prestigious Wallpaper magazine listed him among the 12 most significant Czechs influencing the design world.
