Milan Mazúr: ÓCUKA Chapter - Epilog
Curator: Veronika Zajačiková
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.
The basis of the project is a series of thematic videos complemented by site specific video filmed in the guest gallery space - now in the Video NoD gallery. In a short video, site specific space becomes a lm environment with new character. Such a conceptually transformed environment, slow-motion human figures will communicate from other short videos in some way.
One of the central videos Night travel responds to the world's greatest aviation mystery when MALAYSIA Airlines Flight MH370 disappeared without a trace flying from Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia to Beijing, China in March, 2014.
Night flight, night sleep, comfortable seats, friendly staff , relax mode. But behind this all is an unexpected moment that changes the character of the seen.
Milan Mazúr in his project Ócuka Chapter - Epilog, subconsciously reflects the theme of migration and refugees. A feeling of deportation and of absolute doubts. It was, for example, one of the key themes of art show Documenta in Kassel, Germany (2017).
