Anotation: Project Breaking (b)it by Diana Cencer Garafová has a bit of a mysterious name, one which is linked to her research, reflections and the knowledge built in the highly theoretical analyses made in her doctoral thesis. Her topic was inspired by the nature of the world and the solution provided by physics and its interpretative models for discovering the universe, e.g., the if and the how the world is knowable. The word “breaking” in the title is derived from “symmetry breaking”. Garafová is especially interested in the process of the spontaneous breaking of the symmetry of order.

Curator: Kateřina Makar Vaclavková

Anotation: The project Zureta (from the Japanese term “error in print”) began as a small note from a Japanese student who was in Vienna for an exchange programme. She noticed that the reactions to defects in graphics are entirely different in the Central European environment than in her home country. Graphical errors are not unusual; it happens often that there will be some reversal or error during a demanding process. Although the interesting point is how the author deals with the situation. In some people this may mean starting afresh, some may rework the mistake, mask their error, and others work conscious of making mistakes.

Opening:
Duration of exhibition: April 2018
Artists: Andrea Kalinová, Martin Zaiček, Paula Ďurinová
Curator: Zuzana Jakalová

Anotation: The exhibition Permanent recreation is the result of a multi-year research project. The authors have long focused on recreational architecture of the 20th century, as the abandoned (utopia) of modernism has expanded over the years from the observation of the late modern bathroom architecture architecture in the Slovak spa to the landscape with a similar architectural heritage in the South Caucasus. The seemingly unrelated geographic definition, however, revealed the fundamental knowledge of the utopia of collective recreation.

Anotation: The "Constructive lyric" project aims to point out the line of contemporary visual art, whose work is characterized by a conceptual approach, the relevance of the form or the poetic expression of works. Selected authors are not only interested in the concept of a work, but also in its formal aspect, processibility, as well as subjectively expressed expressivity. This line of artists is thus excluded from the present post-conceptualism or from shallow aesthetics.

Curator: Miroslava Urbanová

Anotation: We would like to present the latest project of Mary Kováčik at the Gallery of the Media named Glitch - painting on shrinking foils.
The choice of technique in the case of Mary's works is never accidental. Examination of the tactility of banal objects by painting a limited color scale, or the uniformity of individuality by the identical contouring of the face of the face and the projection of the image in the attempt to achieve a perfect non-existent pattern are characteristic of its previous work.
