Veronika Pausova’s recent work focuses on disconnected parts of the human body to provoke a feeling of unease: fingers clutching vases, a hand reaching into a hot tub, and ears floating in the water like oysters. Pausova was born in Prague, Czech Republic and lives and works in Toronto. She received her BFA from Glasgow School of Art (2009) and her MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University (2013). She shows internationally and has had recent solo and two-person exhibitions at Franz Kaka; Simone Subal (New York); Tatjana Pieters (Ghent); Motel Gallery (Brooklyn); and SARDINE Gallery (Brooklyn).
