THIN CZECH LINE Jiří Ptáček, Arlene Tuckerová | review | 01.03.2003
THIN CZECH LINE
Things You Don’t Know, K&S, Berlin, Nov. 20, 2003 – Jan. 17, 2004 An evening walk down Linienstrasse avenue is disheartening. Every second or third shop window warmly glows in its exclusivity, the wide halls behind a sterile white decorated with insta-art installations. The surplus of Capital is obvious, but the result is an investment into a luxurious mountain sanatorium. Digressions down…

IF I WANT TO WRITE A REVIEW, THEN I’LL WRITE IT
Jana Kalinová: When I don’t know, so I ask, I would ask, but I don’t know who; Home Gallery, Prague, Sept. 9 – Sept. 13, 2003 Experience tells me that in simple situations in which I don’t really know what to do, only rarely — as a typical representative of the male of the species — do I choose the most effective path: in short, I don’t ask where this or that street is, what is the quickest way…

PAP FRICTION
Prague’s Gallery Art Factory came swooping onto the Czech scene from Slovakia last year, unapologetically landing right on Wenceslas Square in a dark industrial box that used to house a large printing factory. With great spirit the walls were painted various hues of a dark red and the space comfortably outfitted with black designer leather couches and chairs. Walking in, one would be hard pressed…

BEAUTY ETERNAL 19. 5. - 5. 6. 2003, VŠUP, PRAGUE
Vít Soukup paints objects from everyday life of the 1970s in his paintings, which were recently exhibited in the show Krása nesmírná (Eternal Beauty), captured from photographs in the Slovak magazine Dorka. However Soukup’s paintings of photographs from Dorka are so disconcerting and desperate that it is immediately obvious that they do not constitute a pure representation of the magazine.It is…

BOHEMIAN BELLY BUTTON
Marian Palla, Galerie města Plzně, 12.4. - 24.6. 2001Výstava Mariana Pally v Plzni zahrnovala práce z různých období, které volně rozmístil po sklepních místnostech a ukázal jak věci vytvořené speciálně pro tuto výstavu, tak i některé starší práce. Dá se říci, že díky tomuto typu instalace si s nepříliš vděčným prostorem velice dobře rozuměl. Diváky přivítal obraz, “namalovaný” (a podepsaný)…

SUBTLE SCI-FI
Marian Palla, Plzeň City Gallery, 12 April – 24 June 2001Marian Palla’s exhibition in Plzeň was comprised of works from various periods of his career, as well as pieces he had specifically created for this exhibition. By distributing the work freely throughout the gallery’s basement halls he was able to put on a good presentation in this notoriously difficult space. The first image viewers…

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE VS. DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY
"Darren Almond, Kunsthalle Zurich, 31 March – 27 May 2001Darren Almond (b. 1971) belongs to the youngest generation of British artists who first became known during the great YBA boom. His latest solo exhibition at Kunsthalle Zürich (31 March – 27 May 2001) boasted the qualities of a retrospective, displaying a “cross-section” of Almond’s work from 1996 – 2001. As with Richard Billingham, that…

FEMALE CITIES
"Jitka Hanzlová, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, 17 March – 27 May 2001; Female, Jiří Švestka Gallery, Prague, 4 May – 23 June 2001It is rare for viewers in the Czech Republic to have an opportunity to see contemporary international art while it is current in prestigious international galleries and institutions. However, a recent constellation of two concurrent exhibitions presented photographs by…
Minimalism and Space Lenka Lindaurová | review | 01.01.2001
MINIMALISM AND SPACE
Jan Stolín, 5.2m per second. Curated by Monika Mitášová, Pecka Gallery, Prague, 7 February – 16 March 2001Though he’s not well known in Prague, Jan Stolín was right there in the trenches for last year’s Jindřich Chalupecký Award. Following a tight race, the award was spirited away by his more popular peer, David Černý, who, incidentally, was his classmate at Kurt Gebauer’s sculpture studio in the…

STRATIL TWICE OVER
"Václav Stratil, Drawings 1955-2000, Museum umění Olomouc, 30 November 2000 – 11 February 2001. Large “Black” Drawings, Gallery of Fine Arts, Dům Umění–Ostrava, 28 November 2000 – 27 January 2001Once again Prague has been deemed too small for important exhibitions of Czech art and one has to set off to the regions to see them. But a little trip never hurt anyone, and this is especially true of a…
