In 1974 Adéla Matasová was invited to create a staged event featuring the music of E. Varés on the “Small Stage” Theatre in České Budějovice. Following this she began to work intensively with paper-based materials, whether this be in graphic design, drawing, or later in reliefs, spatial objects and installations.
Since 1989 she has been working systematically on installations of objects in space. Sound is always included in these works, which she selects from the work of contemporary composers in the sphere of minimalism, or artists concerned with audio installations, such as Alvin Lucier and Ellen Fullman. In her most recent exhibitions she has engineered the sound herself (e.g. in Ústí nad Labem “Shift in Space”, at the exhibition "Grey Blocks” and in Brno at the exhibition “Communications II”).
As well as synthetic resin, which she has used since 1968, her favourite materials include flax paper, wood, and at present steel plate combined with mirrored steel surfaces (Symposium on Crete).
At the end of 1985 she began working intensively with flax paper processed into spatial arrangements. She first exhibited these works at her solo exhibition in 1986. In the same year these works were presented at ART 17 in Basel, in 1987 at CIAE in Chicago, and in 1994 at the Festival of Czech Art in New York. In 2004 she had a sole exhibition in the Museum of Modern Art in Denver, USA.
She is a member of the association "Umělecká beseda".
