O2H2O

Artists: students of the Department of Creative Arts and Art Education, CPU Nitra
Curators: Jana Mináriková, Martin Kratochvil

courage (O2H) + water (H2O) = O2H2O
[translator’s note: in Slovak, “O2H” can be pronounced the same as the equivalent word for courage]
Water and courage have a lot in common. They both keep us alive. As it often happens, water can destroy our courage. Yet even more frequently we have the courage to destroy water. The students contemplate these themes, explore how they relate to each other and to them… The open concept of the theme gives them a change to show their courage.


11 April – 30 June 2019

Temporary Paradises

Artist: Marika Volfová (CZ)
Curator: Václav Magid (CZ)

The project will present my diploma thesis from the Faculty of Fine Arts at BUT in Brno. It is a development of a long-term project of mine that interconnects themes of environmental re-sponsibility, the privilege of mobility, nomad life, borders and dreams of utopian un/realities. It is an installation that consists of three parts: a 10-metre-long canvas, two-channel projec-tion with sound and three video footages on screens.

– The exhibition has been selected from the Nitra Gallery’s Open Call submissions.


19 September – 3 November 2019

Antihygge

Artists: Ingrid Kepková, Viera Zubalová
Curator: Václav Janoščík (CZ)

Progress can only happen when our society is facing a challenge. Hygge is a state of active denial when we keep telling ourselves that everything will be alright. Hygge is stagnation. An-tihygge is an authentic description of the state of the society that is not afraid to admit that negative perceptions are normal.

The exhibition has been selected from the Nitra Gallery’s Open Call submissions.

F4-F1

Artist: David Přílučík (CZ)
Curator: Zuzana Janečková

I will use the story of creating the breed of the Czechoslovakian Wolfdog as a live archive that is supposed to uncover the conflicts of dualistic thinking and its origins. The point of incep-tion will be an interview with a young colonel and creator of the breed, Karel Hartl. My inten-tion is not to judge or polarise the motives that led to the creation of this creature, but rather make them more visible and expose them in the current context.
