Lukáš Karbus Jiří Ptáček | new faces | 01.01.2008
LUKÁŠ KARBUS
When Lukáš Karbus left Martin Mainer’s studio at the Brno school for the arts, he returned to the town of Pihel, near Česka Lípa in the Sudetenland. He set up shop, became a partner in a saw mill and currently plants Japanese poplar trees whose fast growing wood serves as biomass. He paints in the evening when he can, after work. There would be no reason to imagine Karbus as a northern Bohemian…
Pash* Jiří Ptáček | new faces | 01.02.2007
PASH*
To write about Pash* is to write about a generation, born in the mid-80s, that has only recently begun to change the shape in the Czech Republic of what this magazine calls visual culture. Pash* was born in Prague in 1984, and studies photography at the FAMU (Film and Television Academy of Prague). He rarely works in film, preferring instead to create street art, his series of colorful posters…
Daniela Baráčková Jiří Ptáček | new faces | 01.02.2007
DANIELA BARÁČKOVÁ
At the end of last year Daniela Baráčková fell prey to the cultural gutter press when her former teacher, Jiří David, pointed out similarities between her video and another project, entitled Replaced, by Barbora Klímová. Baráčková’s work is a record of a busy New York street on which Baráčková is seen stretching out her arms—just like the artist Jiří Kovanda three decades earlier in Prague. This…
Alice Nikitinová Lenka Vítková | new faces | 01.01.2007
ALICE NIKITINOVÁ
If the latest paintings of Alice Nikitinová (1979) were presented with the accompaniment of Coldcut’s music, those anonymous guys clad in brightly colored overalls might gradually start to move. Nikitinová’s previous works have included thematic traffic signs, surface improvements and colored areas projected into the view of people living in a city. By reproducing surfaces while disregarding…
Sylvie Brodi Jiří Kovanda | new faces | 01.01.2007
SYLVIE BRODI
After they came home from their favorite restaurant where they have gone every Friday friends with whom they have met up with more-or-less regularly since high school, they didn’t say a word. The children were already asleep. They took a shower. He sat in a comfortable armchair in the hall. Usually, when he comes home late from a pub, he turns on the TV whatever is on and has a shot. Not today.…
Pavel Švec Jiří Ptáček | new faces | 01.03.2006
PAVEL ŠVEC
“When the medicine helps, we don’t ask where it comes from.” (Pavel Ryška in a critique of Pavel Švec’s Life on Other Planets) I would say, “When the medicine doesn’t help, we have another prescribed.” And we can never admit to ourselves our own mortality. We try to keep ourselves alive as long as possible, although we don’t know why; we think of long life as if it was some sort of important…
Václav Girsa Jiří Ptáček | new faces | 01.02.2006
VÁCLAV GIRSA
If you are looking for a painter whose enthusiasm you can trust, don’t miss Václav Girsa. His pictures are diverse, brutal and funny. Girsa doesn’t limit himself; he paints landscapes, cottages, volcanic eruptions, metal rock groups, abstractions and cats. He does not fear impasto or brushstrokes, and is generally unkind in his treatment of canvas. He manages to thwart accusations of too much…
Filip Nerad Jiří Ptáček | new faces | 01.01.2006
FILIP NERAD
At the beginning of the century a small circle of artists from Brno’s FaVU (Faculty of Fine Arts), who investigate the language of animated films, converged around filmmaker Filip Cenek. Typical for this creator were short-term alliances between a few artists, rearranging of characters and various language of animation narrativity, a reminiscence to a generation’s experience with fairytale…
Dominik Lang Jiří Ptáček | new faces | 01.01.2006
DOMINIK LANG
Dominik Lang (1980) lives in Prague, studies at the studio of Jiří Příhoda at the Academy of Visual Arts (AVU) situated in Prague. In general, Lang is interested in “solutions.” He watches how things are being done, what is considered as given (“we accept it and don’t think about it anymore”), and suggests changes and different solutions. Sometimes he strives for a visible change, sometimes for a…
Viktor Špaček, I like things, those quiet comrades Lenka Klodová | new faces | 01.03.2005
VIKTOR ŠPAČEK, I LIKE THINGS, THOSE QUIET COMRADES
While driving on the smooth highway leading from Dresden to Berlin, with its rhythmical multitudes of street lamps, serpentine crash barriers and traffic lights flashing by, I recalled Viktor Špaček more vividly. Born rather than created, technical elements are rooted in norms and laws, transcending the limitations of human production. They originate neither through chan-ce nor human caprice; we…
