IBCA – PRAGUE BIENNALE 2: TWO VISITS AT ONCE
At the beginning of the year, Oliver Kielmayer, a Swiss publisher, arranged a meeting in the Umělec editorial office. He wanted some consultation. He had accepted an offer from the Prague National Gallery to curate the International Biennale of Contemporary Art (IBCA). He said he had no idea he would be entering a chaotic quarrel between the IBCA and Prague Biennale 2. The IBCA is organized by…
Insiders Inc. Jiří Ptáček | review | 01.01.2005
INSIDERS INC.
Insiders, Dům pánů z Kunštátu, Brno Dec. 14, 2004 – Jan. 30, 2005; Futura Gallery, Prague, Feb. 17 – May 1, 2005 Immediate Context has disappeared - Immediate Contexts have disappeared. The time has come to dig up the bodies and embalm them, belatedly. The Insiders exhibition presents exquisite works of distinguished artists. Maybe that is for no purpose. The preparation of the Insiders was…
Revolution in Romania Jiří Ptáček | commentary | 01.04.2004
REVOLUTION IN ROMANIA
The National Museum of Contemporary Art (MNAC) in Bucharest lies in a bizarre place. The memory of one of the biggest architectonical eccentricities of late communism, Ceauşescu’s palace, House of the People can not be so easily erased. Even when a democratic parliament moves in there from one side and the museum of contemporary art from the other, its genius loci breathes down at you right at…
Report from a Country that Doesn’t Exist Jiří Ptáček | reportage | 01.04.2004
REPORT FROM A COUNTRY THAT DOESN’T EXIST
On the night of December 14th I landed at the airport in Pristina, Kosovo where I went to participate in the third year of Videofest representing Umělec. This year’s subtitle was Homemade Marmalade. Irony runs through the veins of Kosovo intellectuals. At the same time as Homemade Marmalade, Pristina also hosted the international exhibition, the Muslim Mulliq Prize — and they diligently…
Vendula Chalánková Jiří Ptáček | new face | 01.04.2004
VENDULA CHALÁNKOVÁ
Vendula Chalánková is an unexpected surprise of the Brno stage. It is possible that if she didn’t bring a comics diary about her trip to India, she wouldn’t be noticed by Eskort gallery’s Jana Kalinová or Pavel Pražák, the “virtual soul” of the Magda web gallery. It would be difficult to look for speculation in Chalánková. She is natural and warm. Her Indian diary documents no consistent story,…
Vasil Artamonov Jiří Ptáček | new faces | 01.04.2004
VASIL ARTAMONOV
Vasil Artamonov was born in 1980 not far from Moscow. When he was ten, his family moved to Czechoslovakia. Since that time he has not returned to Andrejevka, the town of his childhood. Since he has become a conceptually minded artist, he decided to make this break a central theme in his work. Artamonov‘s methods could best be described as reconstructions of remembered realities in art media…
The Best Known Hacker Jiří Ptáček | blasphemy | 01.03.2004
THE BEST KNOWN HACKER
Again hundredfold I bestride the swan Sorriness in my eyes Devil in my crotch Everyone passes me by A mile off (...) A Total Goof Blanka Jakubčíková is a spectre. She has had a professional education, so one would imagine that she is aware of what present-day art practice likes most and likes least. It is not for me to judge, maybe she knows it, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she didn’t. It…
What’s Sri Chinmoy Doing Here? Jiří Ptáček | 01.03.2004
WHAT’S SRI CHINMOY DOING HERE?
Not long ago, when I was thinking about writing an essay about the artwork of Sri Chinmoy, Jesper Alvaer, a Norwegian artist living in Prague, stopped by. Alvaer took an interest in this, and we began to discuss Chinmoy’s drawings and paintings. He told me an interesting story.Once Alvaer attended a Chinmoy meeting. As he watched Chinmoy sitting on a platform, he caught sight of a woman nearby…
Matìj Smetana Jiří Ptáček | new face | 01.03.2004
MATÌJ SMETANA
Matìj Smetana was born in Prague in 1980, spent his fourth year in the painting studio of Petr Kvíèala at the Faculty of visual arts in Brno. Each of his realizations are based on one peculiar, cunning conception. He sets himself free topics but only when they have clear limitations. He’s already wittily expressed himself with Occam’s razor project. He drew pictures of knives on small cuttings of…
