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.

Alternativa gallery
Komenského 10
curator Radek Wohlmuth

The project of Alessandra Svatek (1979) – a painter who cannot bring herself to use colors, takes the form of a symbolic journey in the sense of visual introspection. Although she looks back through her spatial installation, her focus is not on memories, but on her own overcome beliefs, which she gradually tests on herself over the years.
