The first solo presentation of the acclaimed Hungarian
art group Little Warsaw
in the Czech Republic, whose mainly
sculptural intervention regularly causing a disturbance
at the national and international scene, total installation of the Jan Poupě - winner Critics Awards for Young Painters 2014, the first open studios
of our new residents in
this year, consultations, performances and special afterparty -
all of this you can see in February inter-genre evening at MeetFactory.
The exhibition Fightlessness is the first solo presentation of the art group Little Warsaw in the Czech Republic. The prevailingly sculpture exhibition develops several parallel narratives that have been in the center of interest of Little Warsaw, along two basic lines: individual confrontation with the external world and with oneself.
In the center of the Flow exhibition stands a monumental object, dominating the space of Kostka Gallery. Here its author further develops his long-term interest in natural and meteorological phenomena, this time stepping out of the two-dimensional canvas, trying to grasp this complex theme by means of a complex environment – a total installation.
The small listening room in the MeetFactory foyer will show a modular performative installation DungeonTT by Norwegian musician Lars Holdhus (releasing under TCF moniker) and Czech artist Martin Kohout (Jindřich Chalupecký award nominee), created out of ceramics, tea and 4-channel sound. A performative installation will be presented as a part of the SYNAPSE project initiated by Insomnia Festival in Tromsø, Norway and MeetFactory which is funded by EHP 2009-2014.
The our new resident, Sian Dorer, will show a dance performance at her studio no. 23 called Black Felt Fantasy, which is concerned with the meaning of the void and what constitutes our presence in surrounding environment.
Przemyslav Branas, another member of the our residential programme, will show at his studio no. 21 12hours performance named Übung, built-up of black table, white highlighter, chair and 1 kg of sugar. He will activate through the counting up all the sugar crystals numerous meanings and connotations.
