Foundation in Art & Design 2017 exhibition

Every year our foundation students in Art and Design present their work so far, in what is always a fascinating display of their artistic directions and future intentions.

This year, we asked three students to explain their work and what it means to them.

'I've always been enthusiastic about music and sounds, and used that interest as a part of my final project,' says Anastasiya Kozyarchuk. 'For my foundation show, I took the English alphabet and replaced the phonological value of each letter with a sound. The final piece is an interactive sound installation - a silicon brain mould with multiple sound triggers on the surface: 26 active that represent each letter and some inactive that require effort in order to get some learning experience from it. I hope to develop my sound editing/production skills next year when I begin my Bachelor's programme in Fine Art'
Take me to the School of Art & Design
Isabela Juchniewicz's work is a sculpture and video installation. 'It touches upon topics of destruction through repetition and generation loss. I chose Prague College and their Foundation Programme to explore different fields of art and broaden my horizons. Eventually, it has helped me to define what I'm interested in the most, which is sculpture.'
 
Anna Maslenko's artwork comprises four skulls. 'They represent four characters. At first they are shown in normal daylight, and the viewer sees the skulls without any differences. But under UV light, wires display different colours, reflecting the various stories of different characters. Through this technique, the viewer explores personalities on their own. 
 
I chose this course because I always felt that I wanted to study something related to art. But I didn't have a chance to go to art school in my country. And Prague College seemed (and still seems) for me a great chance to develop myself as an artist. Needless to say, I have tried so many different things here, it's difficult to imagine them all!'
