Tereza Hurlow / Buskova
Visual artist / Educator
Since completing my MA in Fine Art Printmaking at the Royal College of Art in 2007, my work has been widely exhibited in the UK and abroad, receiving several awards and prizes. After graduating, I attained exhibitions and support from both David Roberts (Rituals, 2008) and Anita Zabludowicz (A Tradition I Do Not Mean To Break, 2009). In addition I have been awarded Individual Artist funding from Arts Council England on five occasions: 2009 (Spring Equinox), 2010 (Masopust), 2016 (Clipping The Church), 2021 (Hidden Mothers) and 2022 (Little Queens).
As an artist, I celebrate and reinterpret long established customs with performance, print and video. My practice deals with craft, tradition and rituals, which I reinvent with collaborators and local communities. Slavic rituals are often the starting point. As a UK-based Czech artist and a mother, I also explore other cultures’ customs and universal ideas of motherhood and community.
Since 2017 I have set up a successful after-school art club at Chad Vale Primary School, where I have been appointed an artist in residence.
