RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
This is an exercise in adjustment, an attempt to make mental room for the legions of ideas and regiments of ghosts that lurk and maneuver inside and outside Philippe Meste’s ‘Spermcube’, to speak of the monster, therefore to propose a representation that anticipates but eludes the ferocious vastness of the cube. A ton of sperm, that will be displayed like a frozen Minimalist cube, and the…

FRANCIS ALŸS: POLITICS OF A PROCESS
“Boredom, curiosity and vanity.” These are the three things that brought Belgian artist Francis Al˙s (born 1959) to art. It was a coincidence that took him away from his previous profession as an architect. He says his work, which crosses the borders of single art fields, styles and techniques, stems from his own ignorance. Since Al˙s was never educated in any particular artistic field, he…

FRANZ HÖFNER AND HARRY SACHS: AN ART DUO FROM BERLIN
A visitor to Metz’s faux-movement gallery last September and October must have been a bit surprised. The two German artists Franz Höfner and Harry Sachs constructed a new exhibition architecture in the gallery. You could walk through empty rooms, see wonderful, white, but bare walls. The classical exhibition pieces, pictures or sculptures were nowhere to be seen. OK, we are so used to many…

SAUCY SOUNDS
Reasons for adapting one’s accent vary, but what it comes down to is how one chooses to assimilate to a specific surrounding. Do they want to emphasize differences or emphasize similarities? All the facets of self-identity and assimilation are brought out through how one inherently accents his/her thought. Through the spitting mess of consonants and vowels, the sound pattern of Standard American…

LITTLE WARSAW 2002-2004: DISPLACED MONUMENTS AND DECONSTRUCTIVE STRATEGIE
On the occasion of their presentation in Galerija Balen, Slavonski Brod, in January 2005, the Hungarian group Little Warsaw presented a summary of projects carried out in the last two years. Several recurring preoccupations and common strategies in their practice emerged in the course of the talk. Points of reference included the properties of public space, the tension between monuments and…

CYRIL BLAŽO - DOUBLE EXPOSITION OF SKETCHES
Among young artists with a post-conceptual orientation emerging on the Slovak scene during the last decade is Cyril Blažo, born in Bratislava, 1970. He alters the coding of old signs, rendering them abstruse and setting them free. During his studies (VŠVU Bratislava 1988-94) Blažo founded Blondiak (Blond Guy), a loose grouping in collaboration with Boris Ondreička and Stano Dančiak Jr., where…

MAIX MAYER
We paused on our night stroll through the city to gaze at a model of an airplane in an illuminated window of an airline office. It was propped inconspicuously on a thin metal rod among advertisements and flowerpots, in an arrangement that hadn’t been altered much since the 1970s. Airline companies have borrowed these elements from each other to demonstrate that their machines really do fly…
