Welcoming of the new Umelec. Exhibition will show artworks and artifacts related to the recently published issue. Ryuta Amae / Martin Dušek / Mark Ferelli / Beth Fox / Annabel Frearson / Ivars Gravlejs / Nicolas Moulin / Bewegung NURR / S.d.Ch / Pavla Sceranková

Just like the last year Divus gallery and publishing house presents a show grouping the ungroupable. A selection of artists and their artworks relating to the newest issue of Umelec magazine will open on August 30 and continue for the whole of September. Among the things you will look at and listen to is an animation of certain cup motif by Slovak artist Pavla Sceranková; London-based Mark Ferelli will bring his nunchaku soaked with dreams of Bruce Lee and blood of the Clumsy, let alone a series of VHS reeking of asian legend; collages of Czech national silly dreamscapes by playwright and puppeteer S.d.Ch. will hang on walls; thanks do Czech Martin Dušek you'll find out what "kroj" means in fashion world and how it relates one's sovereign identity in clothing - watch out for figurines; there will be a photo by Bewegung NURR that will challenge your idea of intellectual bling, that is, if you had any in the first place; we will show you a monograph by Slovak artist, which we believe is the way these books should be done; some manipulated photography by Nicolas Moulin, our Berlin-based French connection, and Ryuta Amae, our Paris based Japanese connection will manipulate you to think of J. G. Ballard; Beth Fox, a witty Irish expat and demystifying art world commentator will suggest a few artworks that should be done, maybe; the frankensteinian lyrics of Annabel Frearson´s Bad Brain Call pop music will be available; there is going to be a loop of silly cartoons Pat and Mat hinting at Gordic knot of reknown self-deprecation of Czechs and blind pride in their skillful "golden hands"; and last but not least thanks to Latvian Ivars Gravlejs a lot of things in the space will be just SUPER.

“A person must shake someone’s hand three times while gazing intently into their eyes. That’s the key to memorizing their name with certainty. It is in this way that I’ve remembered the names of 5,000 people who have been to the Horse Hospital,” Jim Hollands told me. Hollands is an experimental filmmaker, musician and curator. In his childhood, he suffered through tough social situations and…

The Top 10 Czech Artists from the 1990s The Top 10 Czech Artists from the 1990s
The editors of Umělec have decided to come up with a list of ten artists who, in our opinion, were of crucial importance for the Czech art scene in the 1990s. After long debate and the setting of criteria, we arrived at a list of names we consider significant for the local context, for the presentation of Czech art outside the country and especially for the future of art. Our criteria did not…

IIn the vestibule of a large hotel in Tirana where, in the end, we did not stay, I noticed a poster on a tourist board with the attractive slogan “Albania: The Last Secret.” It accosted us because we had no desire to see the sights of a country that had weathered the ravages of Enver Hoxha. We were here to find out what was happening at Tirana’s second biennale. The patron of the first biennale…

“Instead of interpreting art, we must love art.” Susan SontagTwo years ago I saw a work by a Balkan artist, whose name I eventually forgot, a recording of his performance in a gallery where he lifted and pulled weights as a professional for a body-building session. The confrontation of him toning up his overly developed muscles in the space of the intellectually charged gallery made me think…
