Q: Against the Current Lenka Vítková | profile | 01.02.2008
Q: AGAINST THE CURRENT
I am constantly striving to arrive at the moment of zero in art. Neither plus nor minus. Neither too much nor too little. IKW Whilst I have been laboring over these words, Igor Korpaczewski has been keeping busy. When I first met Igor to look over some prints, Korpaczewski was exhibiting in the Resetting show Prague’s City Library gallery. At the time when the text was supposed to come out,…

JOE COLEMAN
Joe Coleman is not your typical “high brow” artist. His roots lie in the American punk music and cartoon scenes of the 1970s. The best part is that over the last fifteen years established collectors and well known galleries in New York and Paris have shown great interest in his work; even The New York Times has covered him in considerable detail. Coleman’s last peak was reached in the summer…

MARTIN SEDLÁK
Moravian Gallery, Brno, Pražák Palace Atrium, October 2007 – January 2008 I first encountered the objects of Slovak artist Martin Sedlák in the baroque granary at Klenova, where they were exhibited together with the finalists of the Startpoint 2005 prize. In a space in which I did not expect to encounter art, I was unexpectedly impressed by the light emanating from what appeared to be a boarded…
I SEE, I HEAR, I BURN; A FEW NOTES ON THE SCULPTURES OF MILAN KUNC Lenka Vítková | profile | 01.04.2007
I SEE, I HEAR, I BURN; A FEW NOTES ON THE SCULPTURES OF MILAN KUNC
Despite the fact that Milan Kunc has lived in his summer flat in Prague for three years, he is neither a Prague nor even a Czech painter. The catalogue Milan Kunc Paintings 1973–2006, published this year by Kant publishing house, traces Kunc’s work through the locales which he worked out of: Düsseldorf, Cologne, Los Angeles, New York, Milan, New York, Rome, Tuscany, Schlosstal, Prague… Kunc is…
SLÁVA SOBOTOVIČOVÁ - Just shorten it! Edith Jeřábková | profile | 01.04.2007
SLÁVA SOBOTOVIČOVÁ - JUST SHORTEN IT!
An ideal article about Slava Sobotovičová would take the shape of a radically edited work of Dostoevsky, but we’ll deal with that some other time. E. J.: How should I address you in this article? Sláva Sobotovičova? Sláva S., S.S. or perhaps just S.? S. S.: Just shorten it. I have a long name. S. does not build upon or follow any set form of art or artistic tradition. Her works fall outside…
A REAL PLAY Helena Bendová | profile | 01.03.2007
A REAL PLAY
The films of Petr Marek are an “improbable” fusion of seeming opposites: they are, at the same time, intuitive and analytical, random and well thought out, staged and documentary in nature, joyously humorous and melancholic, honest and self ironic. Petr Marek works largely with individuals that are close to him, people who share similar ideas and thoughts. Marek’s films are quite original…
DANIEL RICHTER’S ABSTRACTIONS OF REALITY Meike Behm | profile | 01.03.2007
DANIEL RICHTER’S ABSTRACTIONS OF REALITY
At the large solo exhibition of the painter Daniel Richter at the Hamburg Art Centre (Kunsthalle), Meike Behm examines selected abstract and figurative works in search of overarching themes. Strikingly, Richter titles each of his paintings – an indication that his non-graphic works do not exclusively deal with painterly problematics but pursue passions that are comparable to those of the …

SLAVEN TOLJ
Though already one of the most significant contemporary artists on the Croatian scene, Slaven Tolj—a multimedia artist, organizer of art activities and curator—has recently achieved international recognition for his inconspicuous Ready-mades, installations, photography, and performances presenting distinct political and social- -cultural criticism. In the spring of 2007, Tolj’s work was…
now art is here: Jiří Valoch Lenka Vítková | profile | 01.01.2007
NOW ART IS HERE: JIŘÍ VALOCH
I’m writing about Jiří Valoch because his textual installations contain a powerful poetry. His recent exhibition in the National Gallery and his work in the Caesar Gallery in Olomouc, a center of the Moravian art scene that influences him so strongly, are the best examples to consider him from. Along with Dalibor Chatrný and J.H. Kocman, he is counted among the conceptual artists in Brno; his…
On Uroš Djurić’s  Language of Figural Representation: NATURALISTIC MISTAKE Stevan Vuković | profile | 01.03.2006
ON UROŠ DJURIĆ’S LANGUAGE OF FIGURAL REPRESENTATION: NATURALISTIC MISTAKE
“The author and the work are only the starting points of an analysis whose horizon is a language: there cannot be a science of Dante, Shakespeare, or Racine but only a science of discourses.” Roland Barthes One of the major obstacles in grasping the specific discourse that Uroš Djurić uses, in order to intervene into the contemporary art scene, is his strong presence in the media as a public…
