An inter-genre evening in MeetFactory: we invite you t the openings of an exhibition of Dan Perjovschi (RO) and Matěj Smetana (CZ) 15 000 let stejnosti in the MeetFactory Gallery and exhibition of Jakub Woynarowski (PL) Somnium in the Kostka Gallery, screening of the video Be Brave, and of course our Open Studios.
The exhibition 15000 Years of Sameness confronts the creation of two artists of different generations and nations. The post‐revolutionary generation is represented by Rumanian artist Dan Perjovschi, younger generation by Czech artist Matěj Smetana. Both artists share a subtle irony that erodes our stereotypes in apprehending the established cultural mechanisms of everyday reality.
An exhibiton of Kuba Woynarowski inspired by first sci-fi novel Somnium by Johannes Kepler will bring together several issues linking Nuremberg Constructivists from Renaissance time and the 20th century avant-garde.
In the video Be Brave Barbora Kropáčková uses intense pictorial memories to return to an unchanged environment of a child sanatorium showing how the sanatorium environment and its domestic rules formed experiences of several generations of children staying at a similar type of institution.
It will also continue the new experimental and process-based residency project Critical Studio, which aims to advance critical reflection and exchange about residency structures, about their followers, companions and publics, will present results of mutual work participating artists: Jomar Statkun (US) a Nadja Frank (DE) / THIS RED DOOR, Jens Heitjohann (DE) and Rafael Vogel (DE).
The first floor of MeetFactory will be open again with our Open Studios – see and chat with these artists: Axel Gouala (FR), Mark Fridvalszki (HU), Urban space epics (US), Jens Heitjohann (DE), Christine Rahn (DE), Jomar Statkun (US), Nadja Frank (DE), Kambui Olujimi (US), Rafael Vogel (DE), Viktor Valášek (CZ).
