In September 2014 Kamila Ženatá formed at her studio a group of eight women. These women decided to undergo a self-discovery process during which they described their childhood,mapped and re-lived the system they were brought up in, told their stories, imaginated, shared their dreams and painted. They made use of the incentive to engage in a process which uncovers the intimate, hidden, unconscious and hence significant areas of the human psyche. The result of this cooperation is the record of change, an authentic testimony which came out of the enclosed “protected” environment into the public space. The first part of the project takes place in the Karlin Studios basement. The Event Horizon will then continue with its second part at Dům umění gallery in Brno in 2016.
