“My Praguers understand me.”
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
This is a quote that has survived about the feelings of Mozart for Prague. And it has been the theme of the contest of III Doll Prague Exhibition. Now I can say that I am agree with him, I make his words mine…
AMADEA GOT THE THIRD PLACE!!!
I am super happy! We are super happy!
It has been a splash of hope, I was really needing it…
Lots of diferent lights appeared in the horizon of Praha.
At Doll Prague I found many diferent ways of understanding the art-doll concept. Very interesting points of view, lots of techniques and materials, sizes… I have the feeling that it is an “open minded” world, more than I thought. And I believe that there can be a place for The Ladies. And for me. Next year we will go as exhibitors, no doubt about it ;)
I saw many beautiful pieces there… all of them with loads of hours behind, loads of care, full of comitment and love. Here is a small sample of the exquisite creatures I met at the exhibition:
A sister of this violin player won the first place of the contest. Inga Ivashchenko mixes porcelain and fabric, very finely, I love her folds and the volume she gives to the fabric.
Olga Sukach was the guest artist and there was an exhibition of her work; art dolls & photography. I find the lady above with a very strong and defined character, I love her face, the more you stare at her, the more you get into her soul. It`s like she`s got a lot to say, silent keeping all the thoughts for her.
I have to apologise the following artists because I can`t credit them properly, I`m so sorry. I started the tour taking pictures of the names to remember, but it happens that I didn`t make it.
This said, let`s go to see the fair…
(I encourage you to see them large, in this case “the bigger the better”)
There were, of course, many many many more.
Two more to finish…
What a movement… what a wind…
I love Anna Zueva`s misse en scene, just a few materials in their right place to recreate an evocative atmosphere… love it. And as you can see, it was also very photogenic!
If I could bring one home, this would be “her”. She fascinated me. It was quite big, 1 metre maybe? Gorgeous… If I can not have her, at least that sofa. Pleaseeeeeeee….
I`m so ashamed but I don`t have the name of the author. I don`t know why, but I didn`t get it. I`ll make a reseach, can`t tell you right now. Sorry!
I was more focused, or “obsessed” if you like, with the art dolls, but the creatures at the exhibition were many more… there`s a whole world around teddy bears and rabbits to name some.
Ha ha ha, I love her, and her wig!
And what abot this?
I could be showing you more and more, but this has to end. One way or another…
When the doors of Doll Prague exhibition where closed I picked up Amadea from her place. She said goodbye to the mates, I said goodbye to the wonderful ladies that made all this happen, and we went to the hotel.
The day after we went for a walk in our last day in Praha.
But that will be another chapter of Amadea The Third…
Děkuji Doll Prague! Děkuji Praha!
