Tereza Zelenkova (b. 1985, Czech Republic) is a London based artist working mainly with black and white analogue photography. Her practice often deals with mysticism, ranging from abstract ideas about death and the sacred, to documenting concrete locations tied to local mythologies or mysterious historical events. Her inspiration often comes from literature and philosophy, but she also embraces coincidence, intuition and analogy as essential working methods.

She received First Class from BA (Hons) in Photographic Arts from the University of Wesmtinster in 2010 and obtained her MA in Photography from the Royal College of Art in London in 2012. She is a finalist of the ING Unseen Talent Award (2016), a recipient of the Jerwood Photoworks Award (2015) and The 1000 Words Magazine Award (2012), among other awards. She has several self-published books as well as Supreme Vice published by Mörel Books (2011). 

Exhibitions

She had exhibited her work at various galleries and museums worldwide, most recently at the Nod Gallery in Prague (2017), Whitechapel Gallery in London (2017), Copeland Gallery in London (2017), Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool (2016), Belfast Exposed (2016) Jerwood Space in London (2015), Le Bal in Paris (2015) and Musée de l’Élysée in Lausanne (2015). She has upcoming solo exhibitions at Webber Represents Gallery in London (Nov, 2017) and Ravestijn Gallery in Amsterdam (spring 2018). Her work is in collections of Saatchi Gallery in London and Museum Winterthur in Switzerland.
