Magdalena Jetelova was born in 1946 in Semily, the Czech Republic. She currently lives and works in Munich, Duesseldorf and Prague. In the mid-1980s, Jetelova moved to Munich and, in 1987, took part in Documenta 8. In Domestication of a Pyramid (1991), a 15-meter tall pyramid of red-quartz sand invaded the rectangular vestibule of the Vienna Museum of Applied Arts. Jetelova is also known for her light interventions and her monumental wooden sculptures. Her chairs and tables have been exhibited at New York’s MoMA, Vienna’s Museum of the 20th Century, and London’s Tate Gallery. Her works are found in the Hirschhorn Museum in Washington, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and the Ludwig Collection in Basel.
