Exposition à la Galerie Perla, Prague

Rencontre entre Zdena Strobachová
et Armelle Benoit


I’m delighted to show my work in Prague, a city I have known through family and friends for many years.

This exhibition is for me also a late dialogue with Zdena whom I met here in Prague a long time ago and very much appreciated her work, and respected her as a person.
Some of the pieces shown here were also exhibited in the Musée des Arts décoratifs in Paris for 6 months in 2010 and 2011.

The small pieces are the most recent work, created during the last two months. The work is linked by a common thread; it’s all about a line in all its forms. There is a line cut, a line that turns in a spiral or almost disappears, maybe covered by colours. A line inside a piece or outside. Sometimes stronger, sometimes weaker. There are a hundred bowls here and a line follows each of them.
