Anna Matola is interested in people, their diversity, their faces and their characters that are found in different places in everyday life: in the subway, at the movies, on a park bench, in the queue in front of a museum, at the weekly market.
To illustrate the human characters and behavior, which she observed in these situations, she mainly uses elements from the animal world. The animal, as a impressive visual transformer. Immediately it brings the expression of the hidden human aspects, of its character in a simple and understandable way. Especially in the presentation of her hybrid figures, half human, half animal, we impressively experience the associated identities.
MARS TARA – Photographies
The twisted enviroments that MARS TARA creates, are populated by Anna Matola's sculptures. Insecure and confusing they seem to explore TARAS disconcerting worlds.
