Lenka Glisníková is the winner of the 2023 Jindřich Chalupecký Award.

Lenka Glisníková is Czech artist based in Prague. In her work, Glisníková presents an independent approach to photography and intermedia. The material and visual qualities of her work take the conceptual relationship to photography to a new level. Her projects easily keep up with the speed of social media and often explore technological developments on the borders of photography. Photography is deconstructed and reassembled into new forms; gradually taking on sculptural and corporeal qualities.

She builds on her experience through the creation of installations and objects that highlight the consequences of changes in our contemporary lifestyle, resulting from unregulated technological progress. In her research, she revisits the impact of these new technologies on our society, the human body, our minds and emotions. Her interpretations present her view on technology as determining our way of working, resting, thinking and organizing time.

Lenka Glisníková was nominated for the 2019 STARTPOINT PRIZE for graduates of European art schools, where she received an honorable mention from the jury. She was selected to present her work at Plat(t)form 2022 Fotomuseum Winterthur in Switzerland.

Glisníková’s recent solo exhibitions include Moment of Seclusion Over the Horizon at Meetfactory, Prague, Czech Republic (2023); And No One Walked Away Empty Handed at City Surfer Office, Prague, Czech Republic (2022). Her work was presented at the exhibition of the Jindřich Chalupecký Award 2023 in Plato Ostrava, Czech Republic (2023).

Other venues where she has presented her work in diverse international group and solo shows include Floréal Belleville in Paris, Fotograf Gallery in Prague, Biennale Matter of Art in Prague.
She is co-founder of SHOTBY.US studio, which has been appearing annually since 2019 in nominations for the Czech Grand Design awards, and in 2020 won in the Photography category. In 2023, SHOTBY.US received the Red Dot Design Award for the campaign for the Dance festival Prague in the Brands & Communication Design category.
