Artist talk: Anetta Mona Chisa
Anetta Mona Chisa was born in Romania. She studied sculpture and conceptual art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava, Slovakia (1994-2000) and since 2002 she is teaching at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, New Media department.
In 2006 she won the Slovak young visual artists award Oskar Cepan and was a resident artist at ISCP New York City. Her works have been showed recently at Milano Flash Art Show, Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary Vienna, Futura gallery Prague, f.a.i.t. gallery Cracow, Prague Biennial, Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien Berlin, Space gallery Bratislava, Turner Contemporary Margate, Museums Quartier Vienna and Billboart Gallery Europe.
Most of her works are contextual, based on personal stories and very often she plays with the concept of access to different forms of power: professional, political, ideological, and geographical. Her artistic practices vary from stealing in private art galleries, going to fortuneteller to talking about sexy men and doing porn movies and photographs with her often collaborator Lucia Tkacova.
