Simplement Compliqué Leonor Nuridsany | review | 01.01.2007
SIMPLEMENT COMPLIQUÉ
The FRACs are “simply complicated” as Thomas Bernard would say. But let us try to be simple at the outset: The initials, F.R.A.C., stand for Fonds Régionaux d‘Art Contemporain—the French regional funds for contemporary art. In other words, each region is charged with establishing, with the assistance of the French state and the French regions, a collection of contemporary art, and is responsible…

CHOCHOLA’S HOMELESS PEOPLE
Matyáš Chochola, student of scuture at the Academy of Visual Arts, Brno, was in Prague for the summer. When the Sculpture Grande exposition was set out on Wenceslas Square, Chochola had a lot of time on his hands. He befriended some homeless people who’d been living on a Vltava river island. They found material from containers and used a lot of tape. One day they decided to go install the whole…

BEAUTY ON THE BOTTOM, IN BYTOM. EXGIRLS’ BAD NEWS

Last year, the two curators – who…

COUPLES
Ateliér Josefa Sudka / Josef Sudek Studio, January 6 – February 5, 2006 The corner of the mouth is slightly higher; next time, a bit lower. Lips are tight; next time, loose. Eyebrows are frowning; sometimes they’re not. Occasionally they’re colored and shaven. These are some of the minimalist elements in the photographic self-portraits of Václav Stratil. But before we are drawn to these…
