Women-Network: Mária Rišková "Spidergirl from Bratislava" Denisa Kera | profile | 01.01.2005
WOMEN-NETWORK: MÁRIA RIŠKOVÁ "SPIDERGIRL FROM BRATISLAVA"
In a book from 1997 that has already become legendary, Zeros and Ones: Digital Women and the New Techno-culture, Sadie Plant argues for an affinity between women and digital technologies. The affinity stems from the notion that women and computers ostensibly lack identity and essence. The computer as a machine only simulates the work of other machines and we define it according to what it does…

OPTIMALIZATION WHIZ
Interview with Mária Rišková Mariša, when did you decide to promote art linked with new technologies in Slovakia? Denisa, as with any appropriately egotistical individual being interviewed, who has to put the journalist right, I am going to diss that question (don’t take it personally, that’s my way of getting over my initial shyness before opening up). It was not and is not a decision, but…
Three Sources and Three Parts of Geometrising Visions of Ladislav Daněk Jan Andres | profile | 01.04.2004
THREE SOURCES AND THREE PARTS OF GEOMETRISING VISIONS OF LADISLAV DANĚK
Faculty of Science, Palacky University, Olomouc Ladislav Daněk (b.1958) is a reputable Olomouc artist and a respected art theoretician. Let us refer to more eligible ones as far as the basic characteristics of his work are concerned. The three following quotations reflect sufficiently the nature and un-interchangeability of Daněk´s hand: “Geometry, geometry, geometry. That is what Daněk´s…

JIŘÍ SKÁLA: A SIMPLE TURN OF A SCREW
Jiří Skála was born in 1976, and lives and works in Prague. The elaborated systems that Skála employs in his works are reminiscent of the results of a self-taught scientist. He attempts to verify principles, build theories, investigate and gain control of enclosed groups of objects in all surrounding fields, so that he—with the help of his somewhat indefinite scientific knowledge based on his own…

ESTELLE ARTUS, DAUGHTER OF VIDEO
The first thing one notices in the video work of Estelle Artus is the presence of images containing fragments of familiar films, soundtracks or dialogues; it isn’t important whether or not we recognize them. The reference remains at a distance, often ironic, always light; and the artist’s videos can be fully appreciated even if the spectator doesn’t know the origins of a film in which only the…
History Defeated The Art of Duo van der Mixt Mihnea Mircan | profile | 01.03.2004
HISTORY DEFEATED THE ART OF DUO VAN DER MIXT
Duo van der Mixt are Cristian Rusu (visual artist, set designer) and Mihai Pop (visual artist, curator). Their association is primarily motivated by a discomfort with clichés, with the readiness of contemporary Romania to adopt stereotypes, accretions of thought stemming from rudimentary political and social discourse. Although they encapsulate bits of (falsified) history, these relics of the…

TWIN BED FOR TWO
The Art of David Levine “It’s exactly what it should be.” Hear that and let it be your soundtrack with David Levine’s drawings. And with this said, you can leave with a sense of closure that tightens the pores of an armored man. Then continue to the next soldier-like drawing for you know what’s just hit you like an arrow in a leg. Whenever I visit David in his studio things change just ever…
Practice, Theory and Exposition of Zbyněk Baladrán David Kulhánek | profile | 01.03.2004
PRACTICE, THEORY AND EXPOSITION OF ZBYNĚK BALADRÁN
That which is really postmodern, open, plural and liberal is a reality of fictional dynamic structures, and that reality is constantly in flux. (Dušan Třeštík, Konec paradigmatu? In: Mysliti dějiny, Paseka, Praha 1999, p. 67) In art, as in society and the individual, one can find specific maps. Some lines present something, others are abstract. Some are with segments, others without... We think…

AKHE
Summer, 1999 One or another man, both of whom immediately inspire respect with tall stature and full beards, cut to a point reaching to their chests, frequently dart across the lawn at the Plasy monastery. Maxim and Pavel, from the Akhe performance group, were among others who participated with Miloš Vojtěchovsky’s artists-in-residence program.. Throughout their stay at Plasy, artists and…
Subjective Patterns of Consumption Vít Havránek | profile | 01.01.2004
SUBJECTIVE PATTERNS OF CONSUMPTION
Jan Šerých’s contribution to the catalogue for the Zlínský Salon consisted of two photographic details of his Saab, model 900. For his exhibition in Černý pavouk in Ostrava, Šerých collected photographs of jet planes and from this collection he made large-format A1 prints. For several months Šerých gathered empty food packaging: bottles, detergents, milk cartons, butter boxes and from these he…
