Dagmar Šubrtová (b. 1973) lives and works in Kladno. She graduated from Kurt Gebauer’s studio of sculpture at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. She later worked in the studio as assistant until 2013. Apart from her artistic practice, she also works on thematic curatorial projects, such as the long-term dramaturgy of the exhibition program at the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences. She has worked for a long time as a curator of the mining museum in former Mayrau mine in Vinařice. She has been mapping the landscape’s long-term transformation as caused by continuing industrialization. Her central theme are peripheral spaces devastated by industry and the dumps and tailings of open-pit mines. She does not limit her work to reflection, but also tends towards sculptural interpretation of the new-formed spaces of the so-called ‘new wilderness,’ which provide physical proof of nature’s capacity to regenerate. Since 2015, she has been involved in the project Na pomezí samoty / Frontiers of Solitude which analyzes the contemporary questions pertaining to landscape transformation and the connection of post-industrial society and nature. Since 1992, she has taken part in a number of solo exhibitions, her work was represented in many group exhibitions, and she has created more exhibitions as curator. She is co-author of the publication Průvodce: Současná umělecká díla v krajině (with R. Schmelzová and R. Mikuláš, Academia, 2014).
