Johana Strízková (1984) is a multimedia artist. She is inspired by apparent banality, intimity, and minimalism of forms. She is combining media of performance, videoart and object. Human body is her instrument of visual and nonverbal communication. Studies: AVU Prague, Studios of Milos Sejn, Veronika Bromová, Jirí Príhoda. Educational stay on Cooper Union School in New York and artist residency in Mexico city.

Posthuman Research
The performance "Posthuman Research" is turning upside down main topic of Capek's RUR. Two figures have fake dialogue, which is dubbed in the mound of scrap iron. Postapocalyptic scene without any emotions. Human-object in time loop is asking abouth its identity.

Performance Posthuman research obrací naruby téma Capkova RUR. Dve postavy vedou dabovaný dialog v hromade pocítacového srotu. Postapokalyptický výjev je zcela bez emocí. Clovek-vec se v casové smycce ptá po vlastní identite.
