Markéta Magidová is a film director and a visual artist working mainly with objects, digital paintings and photography. Her interest lies in connection of the rigid, coded patterns of human behavior with the possibility of creating new social and visual imagery. She analyses sedimentation of stereotypes in cultural, fictive and historical representations, that are seen on the axis of gender or oppression. Celebrations and group performances appear as a symbol of strong group emotions as well as a threat to individual free will, of a possibility to be different from the collective code.
