* 1985, Czech Republik
Jakub Vrba was born in Karlovy Vary and lives in Vienna. His work consists mainly of drawing, sculpture, video and film. But not only. Jakub Vrba contributes with comics and drawings for different magazines and collective projects and he also builds pyrotechnical sculptures and costumes in the tradition of baroque theatre. He addresses notions of spectacle, pathos, unpaid labour and the dictatorship of everyday life contingencies. He does so by exploring enactment, reenactment, rehearsal, the study of space through formal and metaphorical exercises and sometimes humor.
