Art clandestino with Luciana Lamothe Chris Gill | artist | 01.04.2007
ART CLANDESTINO WITH LUCIANA LAMOTHE
I hated the oppressive obedience of my school days. As a reaction to it the kids I befriended were far more inclined to cause chaos than to learn. Pubic hair in sandwiches, mud in hair, a healthy disdain for the National curriculum; every school had kids like these. I was surprised when I moved into the professional world that this oppression was even more systematically ingrained. So I…
Words Are Not Only Hot Air (Lenka Klodová: A place of pilgrimage — Neratovice) Radek Wohlmuth | artist | 01.02.2003
WORDS ARE NOT ONLY HOT AIR (LENKA KLODOVÁ: A PLACE OF PILGRIMAGE — NERATOVICE)
Words Are Not Only Hot AirLenka Klodová: A place of pilgrimage — NeratoviceRoughly two years ago (Dec. 1, 2001), in the Czech town of Neratovice, near where Mánesova and Benešova streets cross, up on a six-meter-high clay embankment that runs between the highways, paths and playgrounds, a sculpture was erected. Several massive three-meter handmade sandstone blocks were mounted on a concrete…
The Star and the Gate of the Gray Castle: The Great Participant Jiří Ptáček | artist | 01.02.2003
THE STAR AND THE GATE OF THE GRAY CASTLE: THE GREAT PARTICIPANT
The Třebíč Jewish Ghetto has a proud new symbol this year: a simple neon Star of David, like a comet shooting up to heaven. The Ghetto is still waiting for its rebirth (this one touristic, under the patronage of UNESCO). The neon light was enough to bring fame. It contains something of a violently interrupted tradition and something of the heretical star of Bethlehem. When we learn that this…
Alexander Györfi: The Art of Friendsploitation Oystein Aasan a Halvor Kyrre Haugen | artist | 01.02.2003
ALEXANDER GYÖRFI: THE ART OF FRIENDSPLOITATION
The Artist as Producer (after Walter Benjamin) In his text “The Artist as Producer,” first published in 1978, Dan Graham presents a compressed history of pop music. The title of the text alludes, of course, to Walter Benjamin’s 1934 lecture “The Author as Producer.” The word producer does not, however, have the same meaning in the two texts. In Benjamin’s text, it refers to a social identity,…
Legenda of Magda Ivan Mečl | artist | 01.04.2002
LEGENDA OF MAGDA
“Perceiving oneself as superior and exceptional sometimes extends into distorted perception, into sickness. And the sick pilgrim wanders downward towards the treasure.”A little poetic defense for the introductionAfter visiting artists — for which I usually take along a partner — it often happens that on the way back he or she cannot help blurting out: “I have nothing to do with it, but this is…
What is Vladimír Skrepl doing these days Václav Hájek | artist | 01.04.2002
WHAT IS VLADIMÍR SKREPL DOING THESE DAYS
From November to December of last year an exhibition of new work by Vladimír Skrepl took place in Brno gallery Na Bidýlku. What’s Skrepl working on these days? On making a specific space homey… In reference to his work, I feel ashamed to write using Times size 12. It would probably be better to go for size 30 in a widening, in certain places condensed and layered, scrawl. Writing like a spider…
Blurred Vision (Jakub Špaňhel) Václav Hájek | artist | 01.03.2002
BLURRED VISION (JAKUB ŠPAŇHEL)
"Jakub Špaňhel, a recent graduate of Milan Knížák’s studio at Prague’s Fine Arts Academy, is currently working on a series of paintings portraying church interiors. He exhibited four of these, titled Baroque, at this year’s FAA graduation exhibition at Veletržní Palace.Execution of theme has over time gone through apparent changes; it appears that the theme itself is merely a premature motive for…

GATEWAY TO POSTMODERN PURGATORY
How she drove my car and moreI finally met Štěpánka Šimlová for the first time in Gallery MXM this year — one evening before I was to set off for France. The week prior I had been asking around for a traveling companion and by that night I’d given up all hope of finding someone. These days, people no longer make up their minds on the spot, so I was half joking when I asked her if she wanted to…
The Bunny Lake Chronicles Jeffrey A. Buehler | artist | 01.02.2002
THE BUNNY LAKE CHRONICLES
"Searching at this point is futile. Bunny Lake is gone. Sadly, it now appears that there was never really any hope of finding her. And, worst of all, it seems that she no longer wishes to be found.Georgina Starr’s latest Bunny Lake installation, in an old factory space on Brick Lane in London at the end of April, stubbornly avoids putting to rest questions that arose nearly three years ago in the…
In the Course of Time Karel Císař | artist | 01.02.2002
IN THE COURSE OF TIME
The video work of young British artist Steve McQueen was recently exhibited at a solo art exhibition in the Kunsthalle Vienna and at Documenta 11 in Kassel. To better understand his work it might be helpful to examine a comment he made in an interview for Art Monthly back in 1996. When editor Patricia Bickers asked him what significance film framing might have to his work, he commented that the…
