Adam Hejduk The Fragile Case

23. 2. — 17. 4. 2022

sound gallery IGLOO
Komensky Street No. 10
Jihlava
Curator: Miloš Vojtěchovský

Adam Hejduk's site-specific audiovisual installation The Fragile Case uses a plot of a fictional criminal case. The author works with the element of chance and uncertainty that evoke the atmosphere of public space, such as desolate night streets. He leaves the solution of the unknown crime and the evidence to the audience. Surround sound creates an emotional and semantic component of the installation, and as evidence, objects are also part of the acoustic space. The documentary footage was taken in Jihlava and connects the secret of possible hints into a disturbing whole.

Jakub Tomáš

11. 3. — 22. 5. 2022

Komensky Street No. 10
586 01 Jihlava
Curator: Radek Wohlmuth

Jakub Tomáš (*1982) is one of the artists of the younger middle generation who managed to establish themselves in the field of contemporary Czech painting, even though he remained faithful to his hometown. This is where the thematic focus of the exhibition comes from: the region, the city of Jihlava, the themes of housing estates. The artist himself grew up in the backdrop of the Březinky housing estate in Jihlava. Jakub Tomáš has been exhibiting independently in the Czech Republic since 2016 (Václav Špála Gallery, Vyšehrad Gallery, Nová galerie, GHMP / Dům u Zlatého prstenu, OFF / Format Brno,…) and has had exhbitions in Great Britain, Canada, Austria and Slovakia.

Karíma Al-Mukhtarová, Martin Pondělíček – Extraordinary Ordinariness

25. 3. — 26. 5. 2022

ALTERNATIVA
Komenského 10
586 01 Jihlava
Curator: Radek Wohlmuth

Karíma Al-Mukhtarová and Martin Pondělíček get to their identities through meditative to ritual ways of their work. They find cracks in a multi-layered space and seep through them deeper and deeper. Both work tirelessly in techniques that require time, precision and patience. They push the boundaries of proven techniques. Both authors are united by the multi-layered nature of their artworks. There is irony behind the beauty, chaos behind the order, humor behind the seriousness. Due to overlapping forms, their works communicate, complement or even merge to such an extent that authorship cannot be determined.

Miroslav Hašek, Silvie Milková, Pavel Mrkus – Paradise is always a matter of choice

3. 6. — 21. 8. 2022

ALTERNATIVA
Komensky Street No. 10
Jihlava
Curator: Eva Mráziková

Undoubtedly, the year 2020 prepared a surprising life experience for each of us. This curatorial project is a kind of a result of thinking in the quarantine clause. The paths and landscapes of the artistic imagination are wide-ranging and, if they have borders, very relaxed. These fantastic environments are made up of situations, stories and images that do not seem to tell ordinary reality.

Aviatica in Czech visual culture

3. 6. — 16. 10. 2022

Komensky Street No. 10
586 01 Jihlava
Curator:: Eva Bendová

Flying, flight, aeronautics, sky and space conquering have a rich history, but also countless pictorial forms and meanings. The exhibition will show the projection of the phenomenon of aviation into Czech visual culture between 1783 (the first takeoff of the balloon) and 1957 (the launch of the first spacecraft). The exhibition does not map the history of flying, it focuses on the essential symbols and themes in modern painting - from paintings and sculptures to book illustrations, posters or film and their social meanings.

Štefan Uhrecký

2. 9. — 16. 10. 2022

ALTERNATIVA
Komensky Street No. 10
Jihlava
Curator: Petr Kovář

Štefan Uhrecký is a painter with the rightly tempted (un)confidence in the viability of the painting as a reflection of freely experienced reality. Free gesture, the throwing of the current sharpened form no matter what it may bring, has always been characteristic for Štefan, but in addition to the essential intuitive component, he has a constant self-reflection, a subversive irony; in the paintings he blends the so-called high with the low, they are constructed by their own breaking, the serious is downplayed and vice versa, but not as a whim or a search for artistic tendencies, but a real struggle for oneself
