About

Tadeas Podracky model "Fading reflections 1" Wall Mirror From the series "The Metamorphosis" Manufactured by Tadeas Podracky Prague, 2021 Mixed media, plastic, wood, glass, textile, foam Measurements: 160 cm x 130 x 28 cm 63 in x 51.18 in x 11 in Concept “Fading reflection”, the result of Tadead Podracky’s Venetian experience in contact with the local artisan tradition of Berta Battiloro and Ongaro and Fuga Specchi Veneziani. These latest works manifested through an exploration of Venetian mirror-making tradition with the aim of disrupting our perception of what tradition represents. Podracky’s mirrors invites the viewer to envision a scenario where tradition is a never-ending constant evolution. Through exploring materials that are traditionally obscured, such as the wooden frames, Podracky brings these to the surface and gives them their maximal scope. This is represented by transition, the further from the centre of the mirror the more the traditional constant dissolves and other materials emerge. By reevaluating these principles of tradition and crafts Podracky develops works that maintain historic relevance but also achieves a multi-layered identity by combining unconventional elements. Tadeas Podracky (b. 1989, Czech Republic) is an experimental designer who is seeking authenticity in our immediate surroundings. Through material research, questioning craft heritage, and strong hands-on making, Podracky proposes a new methodology, a reformulated approach to design, based on exploring expression, destruction, and accenting individuality. Whether it is an object or space, he is always looking for a way to break down the established principles of "good" design; in order to bring new possibilities and emphasize the multi-layered identities of the contemporary individual. Tadeas Podracky went through the design and fine art academic training. He received a MA at the Academy of Art Architecture and Design in Prague; completed study internships in the Fine Art studio at the School of Visual Arts (New York) and in the Monumental Sculpture studio at the Academy of Fine Arts (Prague). After a period of independent practice, he obtained MA in Contextual Design from the Design Academy Eindhoven. His work won the AD design award and CGD award and has been internationally exhibited, notably Design Miami Basel, FOG San Francisco, Maison et Objet Paris, Mudac museum Lausanne, Designblok Prague, Salone del Mobile Milano, London design festival, Dutch Design Week. Podracky was invited as a guest designer to several design residencies, Design Biennial (Venice), Fellowship in Creative Glass Center of America at WheatonArts (USA), and FROM YUHANG RONG DESIGN LIBRARY (China).
