Mira Podmanická (1981) graduated from textiles and sculpture, completing her PhD. studies in 2011 at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava where she now works as a lecturer. Site-specific installations made of soft materials have an important place in her sculptures. Apart from their individual works Markéta and Mira have many common projects – bio-vases being just one of them. They are also exhibition curators for many Czech and Slovak artists and designers.
