Renata Kudlacek




Renata Kudlacek is a mixed media artist, specializing in fine art photography and print media. Her work has been exhibited widely across Europe whilst actively working for various art and education initiatives including project management and curation. She is currently part of the Art and Ethics research group at the University of Edinburgh.

Renata critically uses re-enactment, the aftermath of historic scenes in order to look back and make the construction of memory and storytelling visible. Much of her recent work relates to the centuries old discussion, which raises the question of life and its origin- the constant challenge between old standards and the new science that requires constant revision. Aesthetic experience is closely related to ethical experience. The use of symbolic motives of flowers, butterflies, snakes etc. within traditional interpretation and mythologies is integral to her work.
