Helena Lukasova

Lukasova, Helena

Hosted by Savanna Jackson, this programs introduces viewers to Helena Lukasova, an emerging artist from the Czech Republic, and a graduate from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, Slovakia, who also has specialized training in fresco painting, mosaic, woodworking, graphic design and clay modeling. Here Helena discusses her interest in warped and androgynous figures as well as how she began her artistry. At the Grounds for Sculpture she sculpted the larger than life-size, nude female figure she calls Inua, a term from Greenland that means "personification." Her sculpture stands silently and humbly with hands open, palms forward - ageless, with no garment or hairstyle tying her to any identifiable period of time. Employing symbolism in her sculpture, Helena explains how she sculpted the abstract form of a human to demonstrate the internal strength of a person by having a weak outside made of cement and mostly hollow on the inside, but filled with gold in its inner organs; then through openings in its face and hands the gold is revealed, which represents the interior human spirit. 2009 JSCA 25 min.
