Tomáš Svoboda, Exhibiton at the Doubner Gallery, September 1 – 15, 2005 The interest in advertising, media and the stereotype of institutions is omnipresent in contemporary art, but it is a rare moment that we might have any consistent interaction with the given surroundings when defending such artistic positions. Tomáš Svoboda considers making use of real patterns for logistic use important.…

At the right time, he arrived at the right place, in…

ATTACK ON THE PATISSERIE
Jan Novotný, Cosmic Bodies Uninterested in a Burning House Serpentina cafe, Prague-Letná, December 2004 At least as far back as the 1960s, fine art has been inseparably bound by space. When he hurled molten lead into a corner, Richard Serra rendered space as an integral aspect of an art work. The peak of that era has past when monumental installations would work with entire galleries and other…
Voyeurism Fast and Easy Simona Juračková | review | 01.01.2005
VOYEURISM FAST AND EASY
Videocards, Dům pánů z Kunštátu, Brno, Nov 11 – Dec 5, 2004 As they gaze into the objective lens of the camera, their faces show no sign of amazement or indignation. Their heads turn towards each other and they continue walking without missing a step. So we have enough time to look at the girls. Any visitor who descended into the basement of the Dům pánů z Kunštátu in Brno between November 11…

BLACK AND WHITE CLONES
Alena Kotzmanová, Cyclone December 2004–January 2005 Jelení Gallery, Prague The work of Alena Kotzmanová (b. 1974) seems to surpass all the postmodern tendencies, excesses and peculiarities, as well as the esthetics of surprise and shock. Nevertheless, it manages to touch in a unique way the introspective visual icon hidden in the depths of the soul. Already Alena Kotzmannová’s portfolio is…

INSIDERS INC.
Insiders, Dům pánů z Kunštátu, Brno Dec. 14, 2004 – Jan. 30, 2005; Futura Gallery, Prague, Feb. 17 – May 1, 2005 Immediate Context has disappeared - Immediate Contexts have disappeared. The time has come to dig up the bodies and embalm them, belatedly. The Insiders exhibition presents exquisite works of distinguished artists. Maybe that is for no purpose. The preparation of the Insiders was…
