Magdalena Jetelova

Magdalena Jetelova was born in 1946 in Semily, the Czech Republic. Is an internationally-renowned multi-media artist who lives and works in Munich, Düsseldorf, and Prague.
Jetelova’s artistic philosophy is in the constructivist mold and is combined with elements of Arte Povera and Land Art.These qualities are fully embodied in the work Domestication of a Pyramid (1992-1994), where a 15-meter tall pyramid of red-quartz sand invaded the rectangular vestibule of the Vienna Museum of Applied Arts. The work Basel, De Wette Park (2000), however, looked at the subject of reading from the points of view of the reader and the narrator using letters constructed in brickwork. Through this interaction with the surrounding environment, the observers’ perception of space and time thus is changed. In addition, Jetelova is known worldwide for her monumental wooden sculptures. Her chairs and tables have been exhibited at New York’s MoMA, Vienna’s Museum of the 20th Century, and London’s Tate Gallery.  Her works are found in the Hirschhorn Museum in Washington, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and the Ludwig Collection in Basel.
