Patricie Fexová

Umělec magazine 2001/2

01.02.2001

Lenka Lindaurová | new faces | en cs

(b.1975) graduated from the Fine Arts Academy in Prague, in Painting Studio 2 of Professor Vladimír Skrepl.


Patricie Fexová does not have the sort of clean-cut hand that allows immediate recognition of her work. It is thus all the more surprising to see her paintings of wrung-out clothing and a studio followed by Bill Gates sporting an erection and lying in the grass, or a one-meter-long black asphalt slug.
She conceived her graduation work in a more or less photographic manner, manipulating photos of bunkers on a computer without looking into the traumatic history of pre-war Czechoslovakia. Fexová found the bunkers visually interesting but good for nothing — they will never be used again. She worked with them in a manner fit for the 21st century: fitting them into her sci-fi story, in which war is just a media phenomenon. The bunkers were connected to greenhouses and were complemented by some kind of land art puddles. Fexová has removed all traces of past civilizations, such as telegraph poles and people.
Preceding these photographs was an Australian series entitled Prehistoric Coves. Each piece was made simply, by overlapping several slides, and the resulting images questioned the extent to which they could be connected to reality or to what the viewer really saw.
Two recent large-format paintings referred to the shifting meaning of painting as it is being confronted by new media. It is as if her meticulous paintings of a horse and a burning forest had been created as wallpaper design for a snobby hunting cabin. They’re so strange that they’re beautiful. They warn with their seeming simplicity that we are at risk of becoming over-saturated by images.

Le Dernier Cri and the black penis of Marseille Le Dernier Cri and the black penis of Marseille
We’re constantly hearing that someone would like to do some joint project, organize something together, some event, but… damn, how to put it... we really like what you’re doing but it might piss someone off back home. Sure, it’s true that every now and then someone gets kicked out of this institution or that institute for organizing something with Divus, but weren’t they actually terribly self…

My Career in Poetry or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Institution My Career in Poetry or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Institution
An American poet was invited to the White House in order to read his controversial plagiarized poetry. All tricked out and ready to do it his way, he comes to the “scandalous” realization that nothing bothers anyone anymore, and instead of banging your head against the wall it is better to build you own walls or at least little fences.

Who is S.d.Ch? A person of many interests, active in various fields—literature, theater—known for his comics and collages in the art field. A poet and playwright foremost. A loner by nature and determination, his work doesn’t meet the current trends. He always puts forth personal enunciation, although its inner structure can get very complicated. It’s pleasant that he is a normal person and a…

Aš menininkas — Aš save myliu Vincent van Gogh in one letter to his brother described a café as a place where one could easily go insane. The café in the Center for Contemporary Art (CAC) in Vilnius is such a place. Insider connoisseurs of the local scene consider it “very bohemian” and, indeed, in contrast to traditionally lackluster and overpriced eateries in museums, the atmosphere in the CAC…
