Vaclav Pozarek

Born in 1940 in Budweis, Czech Republic.

Vaclac Pozarek has lived and worked in Bern in Switzerland since the end of the 60s. His extremely varied work is portrayed through the choice of media that he employs: mainly drawing and sculpture, but also collage, photography, exhibition scenography, and book design. He continuously questions the art presentation forms. Although it appears that he subscribes to a tradition of minimalist sculpture, particularly through his disregard for plinths and refusal of simple imitation of reality, Vaclav Pozarek in fact distinguishes himself from this through his preference for artisan techniques and vernacular references.
