“For me, nature and gardens are therapy and inspiration. You can travel and explore the whole world, but you can just as well discover it within one square meter of grass or an ordinary forest. Everything reappears there again and again. Structure, form, function, relative scale…”
Vladimíra Klumpar

The exhibition features new work by Vladimíra Klumpar. Inspired by her beloved flowers the streamlined, color saturated objects are a rumination on her idea of garden as a counterbalance to displacement and emigration and a portable expression and signifier of home. The work in this exhibition was made in her studio located in the north Bohemian hamlet of Loučky, (Meadows in English). Klumpar built the studio when she returned back to the Czech Republic after more than twenty years in emigration.

For much of her adult life this Czech-born sculptor has been a citizen of the world, living between homes in the United States, Mexico, Portugal and the Czech Republic. Klumpar’s work is represented in more than a dozen museums and institutions around the world including the Museum of Decorative Arts, Prague; Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, NY; Racine Art Museum, Racine WI; Museum of Arts and Design, New York, and the Cafesjian Museum Foundation, Yerevan, Armenia.
