Iveta Tomanová graduated at the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava (Slovakia). Afterwards she focused on figurative sculpture as a freelancer artist. She is interested in sociological relations, current affairs and fascinated by the behaviour of people in their everyday life. Moreover, she occupies herself with everything that unites us and characterizes the era in the current globalized world. Her art was already exhibited in several countries like Germany, France, Poland, Czech Republic, Greece and Slovakia.

Luca Curci – Can You talk about your personal experience in Venice?

Iveta Tomanová – Venice is a wonderful city with a unique atmosphere and omnipresent history. To be a part of the truly international exhibition in Venice, in its palaces, is a dream for any artist.

L. C. – What did you think about the whole organization of the event. The artists’ selection, the communication management and opening nights?

I. T. – Since the very beginning the communication and organization was very professional and friendly. I have to point out the excellent choice of the artists, where the emphasis was put on the quality of work and a professional selection of art. My impressions of the whole exhibition were very positive.

L. C. – What do you think about the collaboration between It’s LIQUID and Ca ‘Zanardi / Venice Art House?

I. T. – This cooperation provides great opportunities for artists presenting their work at beautiful places and during the period of the 56th Biennale. It’s something special.

L. C. – Can you talk about the artwork you presented in Venice?

I. T. – For some time already I occupy myself with the topic of SELF. The SELF phenomenon is very current and affects us all. Through SELF every one of us builds his or her personal fictional assets. I try to capture people, when they are occupied with SELF. I was thrilled by the opportunity to exhibit at the Venice festival of SELF.

L. C. – How is it linked with the festival’s theme?

I. T. – In my opinion it’s very close to the topic and that is why I am glad to present my art work at Palazzo Zanardi C’a / Venice Art House and Palazzo Dolfin Bolani.

L. C.- What are you currently working on?

I. T. – I have elaborated a number of topics. I want to continue with SELF and deal with the impact of globalization on the human behaviour, what unites us and what we all have in common. These themes I want to implement in figural compositions.

L. C. – What is art for you?

I. T. – Art is my everyday life. My husband is an artist as well, therefore, for us everything is linked to art.

L. C. – What do you think about International Art Expo and it’s LIQUID organizations? Do you think they can represent an opportunity for artists?

I. T. – Cooperating with the International Art Expo and it’s LIQUID organizations is a huge opportunity. They offer a professional support, which is crucial for presentation and the visibility of artists. I am very glad that I got to know them and was able to cooperate with them, for which I am grateful.
