Magdalena Jetelová's installations involving highly sensitive technology, seem to stand in contradiction to her earlier wood sculptures. Her best known work is a roughly four-meter high throne which she installed opposite the Hradchin in Prague as an ironic metaphor of power at the end of the seventies. By enlarging objects to gigantic proportions, diminishing or burning them to cinders, she changes our perception of the architetural environment. In the last few years, Magdalena Jetelová has turned to light and laser projections. She juxtaposes buildings and landscapes highlighting the contradictions between nature and artifice. This book features her temporary installations created between 1990-1996. It is the only documentation of these temporal limited projects to date. The artist: Magdalena Jetelová, born 1946 in the Czech town of Semily. Studied art history in Prague and Milan. Emigrated to Germany in 1985. She has held a professorship at the Staatliche Kunstakademie Düsseldorf since 1990. She received the Art Award of the City of Darmstadt in 1995. Together with Rebecca Horn and Marina Abramovic, she is regarded as one of the most important women artists working in Germany.
