Anna Zemánková at the Collection de l´Art Brut, Lausanne

pozvánkaThe Collection de l’Art Brut in cooperation with ABCD/Prague proudly presents a major retrospective of works by the Czech creator Anna Zemánková (1908 – 1986). The event has been set up in close conjunction with this creator's family who, for many years now, has sought to promote Zemánková's oeuvre. To that end, the Collection de l'Art Brut has assembled a large selection of nearly 180 drawings from both its own holdings and the family's private collection: many of these are being shown for the first time. Works from a private Czech collection will also go on display, together with archival documents, a to-date-unreleased film on Anna Zemánková and a major monograph.

The documentary film Le jardin botanique d'Anna Zemánková (A.Z.'s botanical garden) by Philippe Lespinasse and Andress Alvarez (30 min, 2017), produced by Lokomotiv Film and the Collection de l’Art Brut, is screened as a loop during the exhibition.

The exhibition runs until 26 November 2017.

Curators: Pascale Jeanneret (Collection de l´Art Brut) a Terezie Zemánková (ABCD Praha).
Exhibition scenography: Ivana Brádková (ABCD Praha)




Director Philippe Lespinasse has made the film The Botanical Garden of Anna Zemánková (25 min).
