Renata Ormandíková (as written by Zuzana Gažíková) is a ropewalker without a safety net. She balances on the rope, astonishing her audience, keeping balance (mostly by a crotchet or knitting needles) between high art, grandma design, infantile knit-toying and chintzy kitch. It is worh of mentioning that she never falls down. This is the essence of her post modern art.
