SADO ART MAGAZINE

SADO Art Magazine is specifically public art, issued by the artist Dorota Sadovská as her personal project. The publication has the form of a woman's lifestyle magazine and presents an attractive overview of the the last years of the artist's professional life, thematically bound to the human body, the fashion industry and the overlap of photography into three-dimensional space. The magazine features texts and interviews with prominent domestic and international art theoreticians, reflecting on the artist's creations, plus work by poets and photographers.

SADO Art Magazine je špecifický public art, ktorý vydáva výtvarníčka Dorota Sadovská ako svoj autorský projekt. Má formu ženského lifestylového časopisu a prezentuje pútavou formou autorkinu tvorbu tematicky naviazanú na telesnosť, módny priemysel, presahy maľby a fotografie do trojrozmerného priestoru. Nachádzajú sa tu reflexie na autorkinu tvorbu v podobe textov, rozhovorov popredných domácich aj medzinárodných teoretikov umenia, literátov a fotografov.

BIOGRAPHY

Dorota Sadovská looks for a centre of gravity in well-known themes, techniques and relationships. She wants to feel her way to the unique point upon which she can balance opposites: spirituality with unconcealed physicality, symmetry with ugliness, a minimalist view with baroque astonishment. Taking recurrent themes from the history of art and thinking, she gives them a new, fresh, innovative treatment. She installs realistic paintings in three-dimensional objects and lets cut-out photographs wander about the wall. So as to create a separate presentation for potential viewers who do not feel like visiting a gallery, she uses the format of a woman's magazine. We have seen her in a performance with real grass, or with interactive robots made of plastic waste. She surprises with her humour and sense of play. In a time of doubt she raises questions about the nature of art, the way it is presented, the relevance of themes, and the forms of being.

Dorota Sadovská vo svojej tvorbe hľadá ťažisko známych tém, techník aj vzťahov. Ide jej o vyhmatávanie jediného bodu, na ktorom dokáže vybalansovať protiklady: spiritualitu s nezastretou telesnosťou, symetriu s ošklivosťou, minimalistický pohľad s barokovým úžasom. Vyberá si z dejín umenia či myslenia známe témy a inovuje ich novým a sviežim spôsobom. Inštaluje realistické maľby do trojdimenzionálnych objektov alebo vystrihnuté fotografie nechá putovať po stene. Používa formu ženského časopisu, aby vytvorila samostatnú prezentáciu pre potenciálnych divákov, ktorým sa nechce prísť do galérie. Poznáme ju v performance so živou trávou či s interaktívnymi robotmi z plastového odpadu. Prekvapuje humorom a zmyslom pre hru. V dobe spochybňovania kladie otázky o podstate umenia, spôsobe jeho prezentácie, relevantnosti tém a formách bytia.
