TURBULENCE - Karel Malich / Federico Díaz / E-Area / Zbyněk Baladrán 

Museum Kampa – The Jan and Meda Mládek Foundation
Organized by VVP AVU in Museum Kampa

The exhibition in Museum Kampa together with the monographic publication "Karel Malich - Wires /Draty" are the results of the participation by VVP AVU in a project which dealt with the phenomenon of gravity and weightlessness in art. (GRAVITY. Art Religion Science, 2002-05 within the framework of the EU Culture 2000 program).

The exhibition project Turbulence is based on the principle of remediation and presents the artist Karel Malich - his concrete artworks, journal texts and general attributes of his work - in the interpretation of two contemporary Czech artists.

Federico Díaz in cooperation with the team E-area created an animation of two specific wire objects by Karel Malich integrated with his own text. The text follows the latent motion of the objects and visualizes the flow of energies that are its fundamentals. Díaz’s video-installation, with its components and sound recordings, offers the viewer the opportunity to step into a pulsating and vibrating environment, which is generated by analogies of Malich’s vision and observation of space. Zbyn?k Baladrán compiled Malich’s drawings from his sketchbooks, and presents them as morphing shapes and captures the artistic search for a form in “real time”. Recordings of selected texts from Malich’s sketchbooks are filed past in further projections, whose documentation and digitalization was realized by VVP AVU.

An integral component of this exhibition is comprised of two wired objects by Karel Malich, “Luminous Energy II” and “Occurrence on a Circle in the Flow of Energy”. These pieces represent a series of wired objects which the author created in the 70’s and 80’s in the 20th century, and to which the latest publication is dedicated.

Zamečníková - Dana Zámečníková

Dana Zámečníková brought very early her attention from architecture and stage design - due to her studies at professor Josef ´s Svoboda studio - over to scenic compositions, revoking the experiences of both the dreams and seen reality. These compositions were closed within space of glass boxes, which she evolved later to compositions of space. By means of modelled and painted glass, Zamecnikova ´s expression gains a strong dramatic tension. The autor ´s work obtained a world wide response, and enabled her to participate and to lecture in the teaching courses in many countries.

COM.BI.NACION - Science meets Art

The exhibition COM.BI.NACION in Museum Kampa-Jan and Meda Mládek Foundation presents artists from the Czech Republic and Argentina who have in their work reflected the relationship of science and art.

This exhibition was held in conjunction with the Czech-Argentine 1. Biennale “e-Golems” or “electronic golems” which included an international symposium and other cultural activities like the “Ibbur” ballet by the National Theatre staged at the Stavovske Divadlo, theatre and cinema in other locations in Prague, July 2 to 5.

Machines - Václav Jíra

The Machines exhibition features mobile objects, assemblages the artist makes from various components, often taken from discarded technology. Václav Jíra uses those components to make mobile machines, powered by electricity, or the wind, or some mechanical impulse. These works are comical and amusing, but also monstrous hybrids, absurd, and yet also graceful and lyrical… whatever form they take, they are always disturbing, and awaken our fantasy.

Momentos Mutanes / Momentky přeměněné - Pavel Hokynek

Pavel Hokynek’s work draws on two sources, documentary photographs of fringe culture – street theatre, festivals, demonstrations – and photographs of well known people. During the developing process, those moments are modified using chemical processes that give them an entirely new appearance and significance.

La Suit Voirin - Pierre Alechinsky

L’Atelier Franck Bordas, founded in 1978, originally focused on lithography, achieving great acclaim. However, it has always sought to expand its range of activities. This exhibition aims to show what is possible in engraving today, thanks to new digital technology.

The artists on display – Pierre Alechinsky, Jean-Charles Blais, James Brown, Paul Cox, Kees De Goede, Tim Maguire, Martin Parr a Georges Rousse – have progressed from the large lithographic press to digital transfer to stone and digital photolithography, and ultimately to digital printing. Alongside works by those artists, there will also be a selection of work from books publshed by the studio, including the Paquebot collection and more recent portfolia.

Museum Kampa will exhibit ten prints from Pierre Alechinsky’s Voirin cycle – a set of five large (160 x 120) colour lithographs and their five black and white proofs, printed on the studio’s large press.
