Tomáš Džadoň

Born 1981 in Poprad (SK). Works and lives in Prague (CZ). Visual artist, graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague.

„A Slovakian artist living in Prague and influenced greatly by graphic arts, Džadoň articulates his ideas most eloquently in sculptural space, through installation. In that form, he has worked with objects such as bacon, a church censer, traditional-style wooden houses known in Slovak as drevenice, and panelák—the concrete, prefab apartment buildings of the Socialist era. These visual devices have constituted his artistic vocabulary for some time now. His easily discernible local-folkloric aesthetics can be interpreted in two ways: as cheap kitsch, or, on the other hand, as a bold confrontation with nostalgia – which Christopher Lasch poignantly described as an abdication of memory”
