House full of exhibitions 2020 – Exhibition Our Kingdom by drotárka Lucie Maňková and artist and filmmaker Viktori Rampal Dzurenko
Lucia Maňková, Viktori Rampal Dzurenko
Both authors were born in 1982 in Zvolen in two neighboring houses and so they were somehow destined to become close souls. They started creating as a child, when as little girls they made various wooden toys or figures from clay in a grandfather’s workshop. After graduating from high school, however, their paths parted and each of them embarked on their own lives.
She is a civil engineer in Bratislava and discovered wire work about 10 years ago. It literally enchanted her how an ordinary, basically 1-dimensional wire bought in a hardware store, which no one even notices, can be transformed into a 3D object, which, with a little luck, someone will notice. One works manually with one’s hands and the mind is still breathing – it flies. The author, as a lecturer at ÚĽUV in Bratislava, teaches all levels of wire techniques for adults and also teaches children. In his work, she mostly dedicates herself to the creation of three-dimensional objects from the animal and plant kingdoms made by classical wire techniques from galvanized and black annealed wire.
