Kostka Gallery: Body Immersed in a Fluid - exhibition opening
Lukáš Machalický´s exhibition is based on his previous work where the main topics are reflections on architectonic forms and principles, quality of shapes, meaning of the things and physical phenomenons.
"Step with no effect. (...) One foot in the air. Joist is not long enough. Fluorescent liquid. Two lines on the little tube. Board floating on the water. Footprint in the mud." L.M.
Artist: Lukáš Machalický
