Intro
In 2013, Jana and Peter Machata presented their designer jewelry at the Orava Gallery. Eight years later, they return with their latest works and have invited Kristýna Španihelová, exhibiting for the first time in Dolný Kubín, to join them. All three artists share the same starting point, as they studied together at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava.

Artist list

Jana Machatova, Peter Machata, Kristyna Spanihelova
Through the creation of jewelry, they established themselves on the domestic art scene before building their name internationally by participating in symposiums and exhibitions, including the prestigious Schmuck exhibition in Munich, and through their representation in foreign collections and publications. 

The exhibition will take place in the space of the permanent expositions of 15th – 19th Century Art and 20th Century Slovak Art, where the artists intend to provide a contemporary artistic perspective in a different art form. Their design jewelry will be displayed among the paintings and sculptures from the Orava Gallery collections which document the development of fine art in Slovakia from the Middle Ages up to the early 21st century. Their intent is not to comment on the artwork, but to establish a dialogue and search for parallels on the thematic, content and material levels. Approximately 120 pieces of jewelry, in particular brooches and pendants, are presented in symbiosis with the exposition premises. Through their jewelry, the artists thematize their personal and historical memory, ecology, identity, sensuousness and materiality.
