Tereza Cervenova, Bagno Vignoni, Italy; July, 2017, 2017


Tereza Cervenová (b. 1991, Bratislava, Slovakia) received her BA in Photography from Middlesex University in 2014 and her MA in Photography from the Royal College of Art, London in 2018.

Cervenová’s work is characterized by juxtaposing delicate imagery and soft light with political and personal references. The artist often photographs people who play an important role in her life as she is drawn to the connections that exist between herself and the sitter(s). Her portraits and landscapes have a painterly, other-worldly dimension which is often juxtaposed with the symbolism of her chosen subjects. Cervenová’s project June, conceived after the Brexit referendum in 2016, is a poignant commentary on the displacement of young people in Europe. The work and subsequent Artist Book were included in an exhibition at the Brighton Photo Biennial of 2018.

Selected group exhibitions include ALMA ZEVI, Venice (2021 & 2020); Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool (2019); UK Parliament, London (2019); Royal College of Art Summer Show, London (2018); Museum of London, London (2018). In 2019, Cervenová was a finalist for the MACK First Book Award, Nominee for Foam Paul Huf Award. She was awarded the Bloomberg New Contemporaries prize in 2017 and was a finalist for the European Photography prize in the same year. Her work is included in the collections of The National Portrait Gallery, London (UK); John Kobal Foundation, London (UK); TATE Artist’s Book Collection, London (UK); Fine & Decorative Art Collection, Eton College, Windsor (UK). Tereza Cervenová completed a residency at ALMA ZEVI, Venice in 2019.
