Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Eliska Dordova – The art is my life, since I was little I was creating around myself the world, I have been drawing and painting all my childhood, teens and it continues till nowadays. The art for me is something I need for my life, it is a medium I use for fulfilling my life, it is required to show my inner world, objects, ideas and it is the way of living. I am here to help and show other people especially other women their value. The art is a path for me.

LC – Which subject are you working on?
ED – In the moment I am working on in my Kalism art direction. I am working on my style. The idea is very important for me, I believe the idea is the strenth in the art, the idea and the good artists heart is needed to produce valuable cotemporary art which will last on, that can help others and can even heal recipients. That is my goal, my goal is my path. Kalism heals me.

LC – Which is the role the artist plays in the society? And the contemporary art?
ED – I believe it is very important for the society and for the artists to be in a perfect balance. I mean the mental inner strenth and the ideas are here to be spread amound. The artist has its way of show the world the ideas the matters that can be acure if the society can read it and react on it properly.
The contemporary art reacts on the contemporary situation even social, environmental…

LC – Where do you find your inspiration?
ED – My inspiration comes, mostly I can not predict when, where, why it comes to me. Mostly it is the places I visit, I love nature, the mountines, beautiful sceneries that inspire me strongly. Sometimes my dreams inspire me too. Lately it has been my life, my personal experience that happend. It can be specific event, people I have met, something that happend to me or to my closest loved ones. All my art is inspired with something from the life. I say that my art is true art. It is as true as I want to share.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
ED – As I get older I find the importance of sharing with the society. Earlier I was too shy to show my inner the most secret secrets. I tryied to show it more wrapped, not easily clear to read for people. Now, I am showing my inner trues more roughly. I am still shy showing my inner weaknesses in my art but feel as more as I am opening to the world the more I feel independed and more self confident, I love this feeling and I want the other people and women will find in my art inspiration and the power to get independed too.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or as a part of preexisting works?
ED – My art work exhibited at the Contemporary Art Venice 2018 has been created in advance, it is my latest art vision presented on public, it was first showen on Grid Art Festival London spring 2018. It is unique new art technique and totally new art direction I call Kalism which I personaly invented, it is my copyright.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the festival?
ED – I like the way the contemporary art is showing in Venice.
