WHY NOBODY WANTS ANYTHING FROM ME

The work focuses on subjective experience in urban and public environment. I use the principle of material and immaterial exchange as a medium for establishing communication, sharing my own thoughts and experiences with strangers who want something from me. I create the audio work from open and immediate communication with the others. The original intention was primarily to relativize subjective diary notes. I let the diary notes read on the street by people who wanted something from me. Gradually, the reflections and experiences of respondents were added to the text. All readings was recorded and then post–produced.

Intimate tautology

This was the first exhibition that uses the entire capacity of the bag of the history of the VAK Gallery. It changes the spatial disposition of the object both inside and outside. It denies its functionality, thus shifting it from the position of a “walking” exhibition space to the position of artifact.

AND EVERYTHING IS LIKE A GREY ONE

I recognize Anette through her voice. I observe the character of Anette´s voice through short spoken messages which Anette was sending me during two months. The spoken messages define Anette including fonetic details indicate about her current mood. I have studied these voice characteristics and then wrote a script describing the phenomena taking place in Anette´s speech.

REVENGE

I let the guests to enter on the opening of exhibition Something for something if they are able to strike me. I refer to the biblical story of Noah´s ARK, a way of selecting survivors who have been privileged to save themselves from the flood. I also point out on invisible rules within certain communities and places.

ABOUT FOLK CREATIVITY

Most of church’s choirs adapt the original music Mass to their own interpretation, thus completing certain parts of it and individually changing its character. Interpretation of folk creativity is a material for the composition – orchestra players have chosen the instrument themselves and they recorded own improvisation. Then I composed the song from parts of the recordings. The players then played by the score and folk-finishing the song during the concert.

BEATS

I use the acoustic phenomenon to compose. The sound of acoustic instrument (I.piano, II.zither, III.guitar) is supplemented by electronic additive synthesis which detunes the instrument during the composition. The beats appear across the aliquots when the electronic signal collides with the sound of the instrument in the space. The originally played tone becomes the source of information to expand the space behind it.

HENHOUSE

Henhouse is conceived as a medium for engaging of generations, specifically for author of the henhouse and his grandmother who will initiate him to the principles of care of poultry. The object is designed as a luxury villa for hens as opposed to caged hen breeding and as a metaphor of the social differences of today’s society. A quarter of the henhouse is used as a studio or residential place for public, as an example of the earlier proportional distribution of the residential and farm part of the farmhouses. This simulation of past life at village is transformed into contemporary architectual morphology, which should point out on dying farm tradition of the village, on the coexistence of human with farm animals.

WASHING MACHINE DRUM

Drum washer which previously used to for paper pulp washing reminds me ruin of the ancient baths complex. The cylinder set inside this ruin is analoogous to the process of making paper and human cleansing in a thermal spa.
In the opening of the exhibition, the drum served as a podium for Three Cocks.

FAIRY TALE ABOUT CAT MARGERITE

The animation was created on base of an improvised spoken fairy tale which I was telling to Eve before sleeping. So only two people had an idea of the fairy tale story in own memory. I tried to create my own idea with animation and sound. Over time and effort to return to partial ideas which emerged at the moment of narration I struggle with modern technologies and memory outages.
