Intro
By laminating cutouts of the magazines in epoxy resin and decorating them with precious metals and stones Jana Machatova created timeless brooches. In these, she skillfully contrasts symbolic moments of hope and female creativity with the starkness of circumstances and external realities imposed upon us during our lives.
 

Artist list

Jana Machatova
As a gallery and a platform for womxn showcases, Ony Dve Gallery showcases and promotes the work of exceptional artists who explore the concept of womanhood and femininity, regardless of the artist’s gender identity. From 11 November 2022 till 22 December 2022 Jana Machatovas collection will be featured for the first time as a solo exhibition Frauenfleiss, in Germany in the North German town of Braunschweig.
 
Frauenfleiss was inspired by a collection of snippets from an old German women’s magazine for handcrafts by the same title, which Jana Machatova found in the attic of her house. She recognized them as timestamps in the life of an unknown woman whose dreams of a better life at the beginning of the 20th century were snuffed out prematurely by tragic historical events: two world wars and an ensuing abusive political system. In the timeless brooches she creates, she skillfully contrasts symbolic moments of hope and female creativity with the starkness of circumstances and external realities imposed upon us during our lives.


Opening Reception: 11 November 2022 18 h.
Open Monday to Friday : 12 h - 18 h
