Tereza Buskova (b.1978, Prague) is a Czech artist who lives in London, having completed her Fine Art Printmaking MA at the Royal College of Art in 2007.
Her intuitive practices capture and renew folk traditions through the combination of film making, screen printing and performance. Within one year of graduation from the RCA Buskova exhibited internationally. This included her first solo show ‘Rituals’, curated by Vincent Honore at the David Roberts Art Foundation.
She has been selected for competitive showcase exhibitions of fast rising emerging artists. Axis selected her works for Future50 in 2008 and Anita Zabludowicz championed her for the first time in MurmurArt at Selfridges in 2009.
The Arts Council UK, Czech Centre, 176 / Zabludowicz Collection & others supported her ‘Spring Equinox’ project exhibited in the group show “A Tradition I do Not Mean To Break” in 2009.
2010 was marked by her timely production of the project called ‘Masopust’ which re-explores traditional Bohemian carnival fuelled survival of winter and its associated austerity. Yinka Shonibare’s Guest Projects were the first to exhibit this work.
In 2011 the Lincoln Art Programme commissioned Buskova to create her first public installation for an innovative pop up exhibition amongst the ancient flora of Chambers Farm Wood. Drawing on the exhibition’s exploration of England’s radical Charter of the Common Man which made woodland accessible to all men and not just the aristocracy.
