Aleksandra Vajd (*1971) focuses on photography, pushing the limits of the medium, she treats pictures as objects, utilises spaces, and is interested in the materiality of light.
Recently, she has been dealing with reduction photography, exploring the limits of the medium, and stressing the aspect of materiality. The Slovenian artist living in Prague graduated from Photography at the Film and TV School of Academy of Performing Arts (FAMU) in Prague. She was also on scholarship at the State University of New York at New Paltz. In 2008, she became an Associate Professor at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana.
Since 2008, she has been the head of the Studio of Fine Arts IV of the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague.
Would You Still Love Me If I Were a Worm?
Exhibition Would You Still Love Me If I Were a Worm? presents the works of four artists, Aleksandra Vajd, Anna Ruth, Tereza Štětinová and Anna-Marie Berdychová.
Each of the artists works in different mediums, such as photography, sculpture, object or painting. However, they share an interest in similar themes inspired by female mythological creatures or the contemporary position of women in art. We deliberately focused the opening on International Women’s Day as a celebration of female gentleness and strength. Exhibition Would You Still Love Me If I Were a Worm? is an effort to bring the unique and inspiring perspectives of each artist into a common thematic space.
