Konceptuální očista Jiřího Skály Tomáš Pospiszyl | reviews | 01.02.2002
KONCEPTUÁLNÍ OČISTA JIŘÍHO SKÁLY
"Jiří Skála, Hygiene, Gallery Display, Prague, 1.5.–16. 5. 2002At large exhibition surveys, like Documenta or Manifesta, it’s easy to see the tendency of Czech art to focus on traditional forms of painting and sculpture, and to see how much of its content lacks any clear conceptual potency. Paintings are usually a scene portrayed in the form of spatial illusions; objects and installations rely on…

THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF THINGS
"Jiří Černický, Brand New Rubbish, Jiří Švestka Gallery, Prague, 19 April–1 June 2002With Jiří Černický, no one has it easy. For some, his exultant application of socio-political problems in art may seem unbearable; for others it is his sophisticated, perfectly executed projects that are the turn-off. But these complaints are precisely why it’s good to take an interest in his work. Artists with…
Geometry, Roughly Speaking Jeffrey A. Buehler | reviews | 01.04.2001
GEOMETRY, ROUGHLY SPEAKING
"20% Sale: Jiří David, Jan Nálevka, Petr Pisařík, Jan Šerých, Tomáš Vaněk, kurátor Jiří Ptáček, House of Art—České Budějovice, 17 Sept. – 21 Oct. 2001It hits you about 80% from the end: the everyday geometry, roughly hewn. The group exhibition Sleva 20% (20% Sale), curated by Jiří Ptaček, brought Prague talent into the brewing town of České Budějovice in southern Bohemia for a one-month show at…

PAINTINGS TO LIVE AND THINK BY
Isabela Grosseová, Habitable Paintings, Gallery Jelení, Prague, 25 Sept. – 28 Oct., 2001Making the transition from the relatively safe haven of a school studio into real life is often difficult for fresh graduates. This makes it crucial that galleries give them the opportunity to develop their graduation projects. And Isabela Grosseová, whose graduation series Habitable Paintings was exhibited at…

THEIR FANTASY (MY REALITY, BROOKLYN MUSEUM OF ART, NY)
My Reality: Contemporary Art and the Culture of Japane-se Animation, Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York, 28 July – 7 Oct. 2001This traveling exhibition investigates the influence anime has had on high art, not just inside of Japan, but around the world. Among the 18 artists showing sculpture, video, painting and photography, only eight are actually from Japan. The work of the native Japanese…

FREEPORT
"Free Port: Janine Antoni, John Bock, Cosima von Bonin, Paul D. Miller, Magasin 3, Stockholm, 15 Sept. – 9 Dec.2001There are three towns called Freeport in my atlas, and all of them are visible remnants of a world order encompassing free-trade areas. But when Magasin 3 in Stockholm calls an exhibition Free Port, they are referring to the harbor, or free port, in the vicinity of the art gallery,…

FRENCH CONNECTION AT THE CZECH CENTRE
"French Connection - Pierre Daguin and Markéta Othová - Czech Centre London, 20. 6. – 31. 8. 2001The Czech Centre in London is this summer showing a series of 28 pairs of photographs by Pierre Daguin by Markéta Othová. The series explores the old question of how two people can approach the same thing in entirely different ways. Or to put it another way: Is it possible for two different artists to…
Moving Pictures Marisa Příhodová | reviews | 01.03.2001
MOVING PICTURES
Veronika Drahotová, Mind the Heart, Galerie Behémót, Prague, 5. 6. – 4. 7. 2001Generating the impression of movement is one of the processes peculiar to cinema. Just like the still camera, the movie camera can only take one picture at a time, and the same goes for the projector, which can only show one frame at a time. Film moves intermittently, driven and stopped by the sprockets, which are in…

KINKADE SUPERSTAR / THE SIMPLE ART
"Standing diametrically opposite an artist like Veronika Drahotova is the man who is America’s most collected living artist. Thomas Kinkade (also known as The Painter of Light) is an American success story...and an art tragedy. Basically, you can’t avoid bumping into Thomas’ work even if you try and you can “acquire” the fantasy almost everywhere. It’s in shopping malls and in the “galleries”…
