MeetFactory Gallery: 24 March 2011 – 15 April 2011
Vernissage Thursday 24 March 2011 at 7 pm
Kal Spelletich (born 1960, Davenport, Iowa, USA) presents a collection of interactive installations created during his residency at the MeetFactory. An amiable interactivity meshes with sinister mechanicality in his playful installations combining punk and dada. Apart from combustible mixtures and explosives, Spelletich works mainly with scavenged refuse, with the goal to give it a new life often quite different from its former purpose. In a way, Duchamp meets Mad Max.
We present you the Czech artist Richard Loskot (born 1980 in Most) as the guest exhibitor. He has a long standing interest in the workings of mechanical and electronic systems which however often operate in open-ended algorithms and cycles, bringing about surprising combinations and weird situations.
Curator Pavel Vančát
The residency of Kal Spelletich was supported by the American Embassy in Prague.
