Šárka Koudelová was born in České Budějovice and currently she lives and works in Prague. She attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and, for a year, the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna finishing her studies in 2016. Her current practice involves curatorial works which is typical of the Czech contemporary art scene. The current work, "Our Bodies So Soft, Our Lives So Epic" has the same title as her solo exhibition in Fait Gallery in Brno. The artist’s fascination for jewellery is the centre theme, especially her particular fondness for antique pieces. These objects decorate women’s bodies so we can forget about their vulnerability and mortality. They also mark important moments in our lives: they communicate social status, commemorate ancestors who passed away or recall feelings and past loves. Šárka Koudelová sees them as micro-sculptures. Whoever wears them should be mindful of the fact that the jewellery will outlive them for thousands of years, while “Our Bodies” are easily bruised, scarred and, eventually, die.
