Frame was introduced 2 years ago as a part of Frieze artfair and presents solo shows of artists from galleries no older than 6 years.
This year’s Frame galleries selection was particularly strong, with many great projects to see. We made a selection of 6, from the 25, which we particularly loved.
Starting with Czech artist Eva Kotatkova, presented by Hunt Kastner gallery from Prague.
Eva Kotatkova’s work explores the phenomenon of social structures and the individual’s often unsuccessful attempt to fit within these structures. In her installation shown at the fair and titled Parallel Biography (2011) she focused on a condition known as identity disorder. With collages from retro photographs, schoolbooks, drawings and old school furniture, she presents a fictive story of an individual who creates parallel identities as a way of coping with society.
