Klára Hosnedlová works with needles and fine yarns. The dense linear structures of her small images, which are made by such classical crafts, look like coloured copper etchings. Digital and worked over photographs are the starting point of such delicate works, which become part of larger wall pieces, reliefs, objects, and whole spatial installations. Her theatrical settings include furniture, lamps, and architectonical elements, which are all handmade, and mediate a reality of a not so familiar world. Like stage-design, they create new spaces, which are also the backdrop for performative actions and gestures. All are taking place directed by the artist in a choreography. Also, the costumes for such performances are designed by the artist.
Most of the groups of works are related to historical buildings, like the apartments by Adolf Loos in Pilsen or the Jêstêd Tower in Liberec, which was built between 1963 and 1973 by architect Karl Hubácek. The tower with its hotel, panorama restaurant, and bar are part of the Unesco World Heritage.
For the National Theater in Prague she integrated in 2018 the installation 'Ponytail Parlour' with numerous dresses, arranged by their colour, in the wardrobe of the theatre. In the exhibition 'Metamorphosis. Art in Europe Now',
2019 at Fondation Cartier in Paris, she presented works from the series 'Lady's Tears' in some kind of boudoir. Here she refers to the for man and woman separated dressing rooms at Villa Müller in Prague, which was built in 1930 after the plans by Adolf Loos.
Klára Hosnedlová studied from 2009 to 2015 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and lives since 2017 in Berlin.
