Entropy video

Decay, disintegration, ephemerality, time, chance, destruction as well as the search for new forms and the disappearance of old forms are the concepts Vendula Kvíz Radostová explores in her video entitled Entropy. The trilogy is a reflection on the legacy of the legendary porcelain manufactory Royal Dux Bohemia, which has been producing renowned porcelain figurines since 1853, which have won the company several world awards and they continue to be one of the most sought-after collector items at auctions to this day. The video shows the disintegration of unfired porcelain figurines in an aquarium filled with water, where everything happens in real time without any fast-forwarding.


Vendula Kvíz Radostová (* 1992) graduated from ceramics and porcelain art from the secondary Central School of Industry and Art in Hodonín and continued her education at the Ceramics and Porcelain Studio at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. She has exhibited her works at domestic exhibitions (Designblok, Moravian Gallery in Brno, Trade Fair Palace, Czech National Library of Technology etc.) and international exhibitions (London Design Festival, Salone del Mobile, Dome House in Clayarch Gimhae Museum, etc.). The Entropy video achieved international success and was acquired by The Moravian Gallery in Brno as part of its collection.
