Josefína Jonášová’s Surreal Sculptures Challenge Social Conventions

by Andy SmithPosted on

Prague artist Josefína Jonášová crafts surreal sculptures that toy with perspective and explore social issues. She uses fiberglass, concrete, epoxy, iron, and other materials to create her dynamic figures. Her public sculptures have appeared across the Czech Republic.

On the top sculpture, titled “Anticoncept,” the artist offered this: “The sculpture is based on post-traumatic condition induced by thrombosis, which is dangerous disease of circulation. My disease was caused by using hormonal contraception. Recently the frequency of young women (with) thrombosis disease is increasing. The fish at the sculpture notes threat of hormonal contraception to the environment. It has been proved that presence of estrogen in rivers make the fish change sex.”
