Lenka L. Lukačovičová and Michal Huba: Local Sensitivity
Photographs by Lenka L Lukačovičová and Michal Huba are images of the peripheral cities of the country and the city, focused on the seen reality.

Finding the appropriate title for an exhibition is often a difficult path to the heart of the matter. The aim is to describe it so that it is not an empty slogan, but a guide to what awaits the visitor in the exhibition hall. Lenka L. Lukačovičová and Michal Huba are exhibiting together for the second time, which can be proof that they have discovered inspiring potential in their mutual exhibition connection. Although the paths of their photographic expeditions lead to different places, the principles and goals of their work with painting are close - in local sensitization. In their way of working, it is primarily approaching the place, not only through the offer of its visible "face", but something as incomprehensible as its feelings - the periphery of the city and the edges of the country.
Photographs by Lenka L Lukačovičová and Michal Huba are images of the peripheral cities of the country and the city, focused on the seen reality. They are idealists, perhaps even romantics, who believe that the spirit of a place so often mentioned and evoked is not only given by the attractiveness or uniqueness of the environment. Because even though it is bound to a physical place, it is formed in our perception. Space is done only in mutual experience, or in other words in setting our mutual "local sensitivity.
