Anna Zemánková (1908 - 1986) 

A compendium of imagined flora and fauna, The Secret Lives of Plants features the otherworldly botany of Anna Zemánková (1908 - 1986).

Over 30 years, the self-taught Czech artist evolved her voluminous abstracted pastels into a delicate threaded vegetation drawn from the regional histories of folkloric making.

The museum-calibre works featured in The Secret Lives of Plants reflect the multiple stages of Zemánková’s artistic output. These include a number of highly reproduced images, alongside pieces formerly selected by curator Massimiliano Gioni.
