In his artistic practice, Chochola combines contemporary influences of the Internet culture and computer animation with contrasting imagery of shamanistic and spiritual experiences. Chochola's sculptures and installations are characterized by antagonistic forms that exploit a range of materials - wood, glass, rubber, ceramics, tin, feathers and stone. They connect abstract forms and everyday objects, creating as a whole a harmonious chaos.
Represented by the Grimmuseun gallery in Berlin, Matyáš Chochola is the winner of the 2016 Jindřich Chalupecký Award.
Support: Matyáš Chochola's residency is made possible with support from The Trust for Mutual Understanding.
