Once upon a time

23. 2. — 26. 5. 2024

Komenského 10
curator Radek Wohlmuth

Five visual artists of the young generation, each in their own unique way, compose fragments of stories on the border between reality and fiction, which suggest rather than describe, so that in the second plan they make people think and search for a deeper meaning not only in them, but also around them.

Pablo Diserens: Ebbing Ice Lines of the Low Arctic

8. 3. — 26. 5. 2024

IGLOO sound gallery
Komenského 10, Jihlava
curator Miloš Vojtěchovský

Ebbing Ice Lines of the Low Arctic is a 4-channel sound installation that investigates the soundscape of the Low Arctic’s melting zones and the life they foster. By weaving glacial gurgles, thawing squeals, avian vocalizations, hydrophonic acoustics, and site-specific hums, the composition sheds light on the minute sounds produced by these environments as they retreat under warming climates. Recorded in Iceland and Finland, these animal and melting voices tell a story of disappearance. The title plays with the existing tree line terminology—the edge past which trees do not grow—to imagine ebbing lines beyond which ice can not exist.

Michal Mitro - Driving Home For Christmas

17. 11. 2023 — 18. 2. 2024

IGLOO sound gallery
Komenského 10, Jihlava
curator Miloš Vojtěchovský

The site- and time-specific intervention for Igloo was inspired by the disassembled body of a vehicle that someone left in a shed on the steep Brno plot of the former gardener's colony, where Michal Mitro lives and works. A decomposed relic of a mechanism symbolizing the acceleration of the movement of bodies, goods and thoughts, turns into a doleful object in a dark cellar. It refers to modernity's dream of the innocence of the moment of acceleration, unlimited mobility, economic growth and carefree comfort. In the second plan, also about the carbon footprint, environmental issues and the interconnectedness of the music, automotive, and fossil business.

Jaroslav Grodl (aka Pure Beauty & Huck Finn), Matěj Lipavský - Don't you look?

17. 11. 2023 — 11. 2. 2024

Komenského 10
curator Jana Písaříková

The work of painters Jaroslav Grodl and Matěj Lipavský is united by the ambition to capture everyday things in such a way that we begin to perceive them directly again. The adventure of their paintings begins in places, moments and situations known and overlooked. And yet, or perhaps precisely because of that, they are provocative, disturbing, beautiful.

Pamela, Veronika Olejárová, Minami Nishinaga: No one is bored here, but everything is boring

17. 11. 2023 — 14. 1. 2024

Alternativa gallery
Komenského 10
curator Anežka Januschka Kořínková

Boredom is an inseparable companion of life. Boredom is everywhere, but no one is bored here. Boredom is an all-encompassing state that covers the entire horizon, perfectly. That's why it's so annoying. Boredom consumes our being, we feel that we cannot escape it. It is our ability to concentrate that it attacks.

One channel of each set complements the sonic ambient from particular location of individual transformers so one can hear as well cars, birds or wind.
