First Czech solo exhibition of Wendelien van Oldenborgh, artist based in Rotterdam.

Horizontal is Wendelien van Oldenborgh’s first exhibition in Prague. As one of the former colonial powers, the Netherlands is subjected here to an artistic analysis. The artist describes in specific instances the unexpected connections of colonial hegemony’s historical relations that appear in misconceptions and contradictions. Against a backdrop of technical innovation and idealistic modernism, she depicts human lives imprisoned in the ideas and convictions that were formed over the past century. The installation itself refers to the inventive methods of Lina Bo Bardi, a leading architect of Brazilian modernism of the 1960s, whose innovative approaches were ahead of the times in which they were created.
