NANOSPASM LAB / Adam Vačkář

"The artistic research of Adam Vačkář is going at a pace that, in some respects, is a clear reference to the field of science. However, Vačkář’s intuitive approach aims at turning this pace upside down, making it circular and giving the elements that make it up and dictate the rhythm an aura that is sacred and at the same time ambiguous. Vačkář’s works that are featured in this exhibition, in the form of a real terrestrial composition, the simulacrum of a possible future conformation that is irretrievably near and that sees the pollution of the ecosystem as the prevalent aspect, act as a warning signal and proof of a future that is already present. Perhaps it’s this term “possible ” that represents the key to interpreting Vačkářs work. His entire artistic production is made up of mainly elusive constructions that are the result of a mix of industrial waste like plastic, steel and glass together with natural elements like branches or other parts of trees." Domenico de Chirico, curatorial text excerpt

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

Video NoD & Café NoD
Stanislava Benešová, David Kolovratník, Václav Kostohryz: Between Us
Curator: Veronika Zajačiková
​June 1 - 25, 2017

Exhibition project of finalist of independent art festival Samorosti 2016

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.

Maybe, there is a beast ... What I mean is ... Maybe it's only us.”
William Golding
" Lord of the Flies

STANISLAVA BENEŠOVÁ reflects social and moral issues in her paintings. She wonders what distinguishes humans from animals. Are they just social norms and education, which can oſten be completely artificially created? ”Concept Between Us, associated me the word MIMIKRY. Meanwhile, I understand them as a mask between us as people in society and among us as humans with (animal) instincts. "To succeed and to succeed in society, we put our masks on trying to meet the patterns of good man. However, we suppress our natural instincts and instincts that are closer to the animal world.“

In the second thematic group, Stanislava touches the phenomenon of WOLF CHILDREN. How would childrenwithoutcare,withoutthecriticalpatternof adults, be different. The author in the compositions puts children in the role of a wild game, whose life and movement is documented by a photopasting record. Simple, unbridled play for children, set in a different context, can be a struggle for life.

BETWEEN US, the quiet companions live 
Some people perceive them as a thing Some are eaten
Some are passing by car
Sigurson is aware,
Their joy and sorrow, and the pure, self-confident soul
They are a great inspiration for him and it is for those creatures,
Which he has met and will meet,
Very grateful 

The creation of VACLAV SIGURSON KOSTOHRYZ moves within the limits of small sculpture, which however grows in size with acquired experience. Václav invites the viewer to the intimate world according to Sigourson. Special for this exhibition, author
prepared three bronze sculptures from Sigurson's Animals series. In NoD, the premier will have a couple of kiwi birds, a bunch of kaloons or a host of chameleons. The modeling
of the animals that it deals with in the present time was preceded by an interest in the human figure, especially in capturing a person in
an intimate emotional situation. Animal figures are created with ease, capturing animals in their natural beauty and fragility. 

DAVID KOLOVRATNIK is in his new interest in the unprecedented past of part of his family. It processes an inherited photo archive, fragments of which are the masterpiece of the large screen. Characters, however, who can oſten only think of who they are or have been, are building into completely new, never-awaited, and oſten absurd, frightening situations and relationships. Although his painting is slowly turning away from him so oſten obsessively repeated central theme of the previous work – fish, the feeling of some silence and submergence remains here as well.

The paintings for the exhibition "Between Us" are complemented by a videoprojection composed of bands of cinemas. Their original damage has created new abstract shapes blending with characters and deforming the original, unreadable information.
