The monumental installation Vertical Gradation will present artist Juraj Gáborfrom 6 p.m. and the joint exhibition The Portent of Light curator Jaro Varga from 7 p.m.
The Vertical gradation is a spatial situation, an object, a place for both physical and perceptive contemplation. It invites the viewer into both a physical exploration and focused observation, thus creating with him or her a multilayered relationship of mutual interactions.
Juraj Gábor (born 1985) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava (2011). He commenced his studies at the Department of Statue, Object, Installation, and finished at the Inter- and Multimedia Department, Atelier of Spatial Communication with Anton Čierny.
THE PORTENT OF LIGHT
The show, titled The Portent of Light is inspired by the oeuvre of Ludvík Souček (1926-1978), an excellent sci-fi writer and a unique occurrence on the literary scene of former socialist Czechoslovakia. The Portent of Light wants to pursue the enticing phenomenon of “lost knowledge”. It follows the comet/fantasy of highly advanced civilizations that vanished in the murkiness of oblivion and explores how the heritage of ancient wisdom seeps into the current thinking and resonates in the contemporary art practice.
