Art mirrors society and is a witness to important historical events. Young ceramics designer Monika Martykánová demonstrates this in her project Allegory of Covid. It combines the legacy of traditional porcelain figurines and the current theme of the global pandemic. The three sculptures represent seemingly banal moments that reflect fundamental changes in the pace of life. These include the high demand of delivery services, walking after 9pm, which in the days of the most severe lockdowns was only allowed with a dog, and home haircuts. This chilling memento, albeit slightly exaggerated, illustrates the changes in services, hospitality and personal freedom.
