Milan Mazúr: ÓCUKA Chapter - Epilog

The Ócuka project is a time-based project. It will be created step by step in 2017 and will culminate in the beginning of 2018. The individual parts of project link to each other and emerge as the chapters of the book. Thematically maintains a conceptual line with the main topics such as sleep, unrest, consume, or hedonism is. The visual appearance of individual units varies with a particular gallery environment.

Juliana Höschlová & Marta Antoniak: Bulimia Cocktail Party

In Prague and Krakow on August 7th, 2017 “We went to elementary school when Kinder eggs from St. Nicholas were a rarity and going to McDonalds‘ only a treat at the end of the school year. Colorful artefacts of a burgeoning capitalism, whose definition we began to grasp only a decade later, caused us states of excited trance. We would collect joghurt cups, chewing gum tattoos and Pogs. And today? Today we’re hungover. We gorge on things, information, emotions, we gulp down data and swallow everything available, in plastic or not... and we’re having a hard time digesting. Like a generation of ,unaware bulimics we constantly and intuitively have to filter it all, so as not to get lost under the trash calamity. The wrong kind of hangover pulsates in our heads, the one that brings spleen and nostalgia, as if after a big party full of drinks and cocktail umbrellas.“ ------- The Bulimia Cocktail Party exhibition will for the very first time present the artistic collaboration of two artists of the upcoming generation of Polish and Czech art scenes, which naturally converge due to similar sociocultural backgrounds: Juliana Höschlová (CZ) and Marta Antoniak (PL). Juliana Höschlová (*1987), a graduate of Prague’s Academy of Fine Arts, is known in the Czech environment through her intense performances, engaged conceptual drawings and videoart, through which in the recent years she undertakes a criticism of mass culture, the mechanisms of consumer society and image manipulation. As part of preparations for the Bulimia Cocktail Party exhibition, Juliana organized a collection of plastic bags, which were then smudged and conjoined into a monumental abstract painting. The collecting of the bags was made difficult by the fact that it took place in Juliana’s temporary place of work in the “deplastifying“ Austria, so most of the bags traveled from the Czech Republic. The exhibition is accompanied by a story from a dystopic world – from “Whiteland“, where flows a black river of oil and people buckle under the weight of their own bellies. Juliana Höschlová mediates the story by means of simple illustrations projected in the gallery through overhead projectors. Marta Antoniak (*1986) is a painter and has recently received her doctorate at the Krakow Academy of Fine Arts. The pieces presented represent Marta as an artist closely examining her medium, which has in the recent years taken on the form of a unique relief. Through melted plastic toys and chewing gum tattoos she creates pleasing yet unsettling assemblages bordering with kitsch. Her relief-paintings often represent parasites spreading under human skin, which upon observation awaken a tingling body feeling: they tempt the observer into a manual exploration of themselves. Juliana and Marta’s joint exhibit is formed from the belief that their formal expressions can create a strong visual experience together. On another level, the exhibition reflects the nostalgia of a generation raised in the nineties in post-communist countries, when the pitfalls of a consumer culture seemed as distant as the world of adults and the currently suffusing feeling of hypersaturation and the fear of its ecological impact. Note: Juaiana Höschlová collected 246 plastic bags.

Jan Pfeiffer: Two Rules for One Thing

Jan Pfeiffer has established himself as an artist working with diverse formats of creating complex signal situations thematizing different semantic contexts. His works abound in historical, mythological, religious and cultural connotations of both specific sites and purely abstract, even anthropological archetypal motifs. Pfeiffer´s visual morphology elaborates the semantic options offered by various sets of basic geometric shapes and develops them in a process aimed at unfolding their broader interpretational potential and a dramatization of symbolic narratives. A common denominator of Pfeiffer´s output is a shared, characteristic mood, an externalized individual sensitivity which determines the nature and language of his approach to individual subjects. Pfeiffer´s narratives thus induce the feeling of a seemingly gentle yet at the same time firm handshake, a physical contact straddling in terms of effect the borderline between a tender stroke and the act of moulding of material, either sculptural or human, represented by spectators.

Olga Krykun: 720/027

Olga Krykun: 720/027 An undemanding visual game at information pollution times. The project grasps everyday life in which one increasingly doubts about information and perceptions. We have become accustomed to doubting this feeling could extend to the common perception of reality.

Stanislava Benešová, David Kolovratník, Václav Sigurson Kostohryz: Between Us

Three authors meet in a thematic exhibition. It combines not only interest in the human-animal captured in its specific environment, the authors conduct a quiet dialogue across genres, across the worlds of animal and human realms.

Pavla Malinová & Pavel Dvořák: Bullying Eyes, Wheel Spins and Flies

This exhibition features works by two painters who have known each other since the time of their studies at the Ostrava University, and who have been close for many years now – not just personally, but also as regards their approaches to painting, characterized by sensitive reflection of the world around us, with its rapidly changing environment and lifestyles, taking in the fluidity of the system of values to which society is committed and of the developments which shape it. All this said, it should be noted that each of these two artists has evolved a distinctive idiom of their own, a typical handwriting discernible at first sight. Thus each has arrived at a thoroughly individual philosophy and an inimitable perspective of contemporary reality.

Štěpán Kubík: SCN/GRP

One of the most obvious elements of Štěpán Kubík’s latest work, SCN GRP, is a moving dot, which traces its white path over a black background. It’s so elementary that it cannot be narrowed further. It moves without beginning or end across the gallery’s four walls, like a never-endingly emerging narrative, and generates a reflection on geometrical forms – triangles, squares and circles – that the white tail seeks to complete. 

Daniel Vlček: Through the eye of mechanical reproduction

Daniel Vlček is interested in the link between artistic representation and industrial production and the relationship between sound and its visual expression. Certain formats in his body of work have been adapted from forms of industry, a fact attested to by his consistent work with loops and repeated motifs. Originally it was the vinyl records he used as a DJ that defined the character of his paintings, works representing a specific template into which memory has been recorded. It was here that Vlček first tried to carry over musical elements onto the canvas, capturing musical practices via visual and artistic formats. At the same time, this work was based on the visualization of sound that had been the inspiration behind his drawings and paintings. In an almost constructivist way, he had attempted to ward off the surface while recording the rhythm found in the passing of time. This intention can be expressed as a spiral, the visual structure behind the principle of phonograph records. Vlček’s repeated motions based on a template are an intentionally mechanical method often resulting in abstract structures. This end result subverts the usual consequences of mechanical reproduction and draws attention to the true non-mechanical nature of Vlček’s practice.

Pavel Karafiát: Objects On Horizon - Hic Sunt Dragones

The term "Hic sunt dracones" (here be dragons) was used by some ancient cartographers to denote the unknown territory that has not been maped or discovered. They labeled places that are on the horizon of our known world. Areas on the edge of the map during all times becomes a projection screen of our fantasies, discovery obsessions, fears from unknown beings and condensed mythological ideas. Pavel Karafiát creates digital realtime 3D graphics using generative parametric procedures and manual work. For Video Nod prepared a special series of large-scale  animation - images.  www.pavelkarafiat.cz

Pavel Příkaský & Miroslava Večeřová: Images That Occupy Thoughts

Ladislav Tejml: Everything’s Gonna Be Alright 3

Either the world is heading into dark tomorrows, or perhaps we may  only be indulging in an exciting catastrophic fiction. We may either manage to extricate ourselves from the grip of that virtual anaconda, or it may prove to be enough if we just loosen our belts? Are these sleeve covers real, or a somewhat more powerful influx of metainformation? Is this text written by a human, or have I bought new shoes?  The project Everything´s Gonna Be Alright 3 is based on works Click by Click (web application, 2015) and Everything´s Gonna Be Alright 1 and 2 (2015, 2016). Tejml works with 3D animation, internet application (web design) and video games environment with its rules. Author creates 3D virtual world, which is typical for computer video games and it evolves at 360° panoramic video projection.

Mr. Tomka: Images from elsewhere (Vietnam and Bali)

This project for Video NoD Gallery takes you through the large-scale projections to the exotic surroundings of Vietnam and Bali.

Jan Vyčichlo studied Audiovisual Arts at Tomas Bata University in Zlin, Faculty of Multimedia Communications Department. He specializes on camera (shooting) and audio and cut postproduction. 

TRIKADELIA / Three Sides of the Same Coin

Tomáš Predka & David Postl: A Man Who Didn´t Take Himself Too Seriously

Both up-and-coming distinctive figures on the contemporary art scene, Tomáš Predka and David Postl met in the studio of experimental painting headed by the widely respected artist, Daniel Richter, at Vienna´s Akademie der bildenden Künste, where they were acquainted with some of the currently most relevant and critical approaches to the medium of painting. Their works oscillate around the borderlines between painting, collage and decollage, evoking the Czech tradition established there by Kolář or Štyrský, as well as the media of printmaking, drawing, and calligraphy. Reaching beyond mere adherence to the concept of visuality codified in the course of the history of modern art, they further enrich it by individual elements including the use of the latest new materials and techniques such as pasting up reflective foils or application of silk paper, pigments and paints onto canvas. Thereby, both artists create unorthodox, materially innovative paintings, assigning attractive novel outlines to a discipline that can be described as contemporary nonfigurative painting.
