"With the precision of a surgeon, Pole Ka draws bodies, dissects them, strips them, and with a hand of a hardworking craftsman composes her sharp drawings. She misleads her strange characters into imaginary landscapes, grotesque scenes. Visions straight out of a cabinet of curiosities: animals, insects, plants, hybrid and monstrous characters, summoning medicine and religion, the Encyclopedia and the ancient bestiaries, evoking the paintings of Bosch and Cranach, the surrealist collages of Ernst or Štyrský and the anonymous illuminations of Middle Ages.
Extravagant anatomy, desolate landscapes: Pole Ka engraves her own intimate history in a woman's body, draws a taxonomy inhabited by androgynous ghosts with murky sexuality and screen-prints the plans of a collapsing world."
