Red, Yellow and Blue in the Middle of Nowhere Jiří Ptáček | albania | 01.02.2003
RED, YELLOW AND BLUE IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE
IIn the vestibule of a large hotel in Tirana where, in the end, we did not stay, I noticed a poster on a tourist board with the attractive slogan “Albania: The Last Secret.” It accosted us because we had no desire to see the sights of a country that had weathered the ravages of Enver Hoxha. We were here to find out what was happening at Tirana’s second biennale. The patron of the first biennale…
The Star and the Gate of the Gray Castle: The Great Participant Jiří Ptáček | artist | 01.02.2003
THE STAR AND THE GATE OF THE GRAY CASTLE: THE GREAT PARTICIPANT
The Třebíč Jewish Ghetto has a proud new symbol this year: a simple neon Star of David, like a comet shooting up to heaven. The Ghetto is still waiting for its rebirth (this one touristic, under the patronage of UNESCO). The neon light was enough to bring fame. It contains something of a violently interrupted tradition and something of the heretical star of Bethlehem. When we learn that this…
Jakub Staněk Jiří Ptáček | new faces | 01.02.2003
JAKUB STANĚK
Born 1972, autodidact. In 2000, became founding member of Skupina 0000 in Třebíč.We would probably know Jakub Staněk as an experienced conceptual artist, if it weren’t for his constant efforts to stand on the edge of art history, to supplement it with unexpected raids while remaining as far out on the periphery as he can go.As early as the first half of the 1990s, he began to attack the…

TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN
Tranzit Tranzit is a new activity for the support of contemporary art in central and eastern Europe. The colossus Erste Bank Group has patronage over it and so it is possible to expect that it will not get into the usual financial problems and will be able to accomplish its plan, which has no time frame. And it seems that after a long time we are not talking about a petty project, but a…
Alvaer Under an Ardent Sun Jiří Ptáček | news | 01.01.2003
ALVAER UNDER AN ARDENT SUN
If we are to believe that the Tranzit prize-winner was to be kept secret until a special announcement, then Norwegian artist Jesper Alvaer, who resides in the Czech Republic, is suspiciously clairvoyant. For on the very day the three-member committee officially crowned him, he gave an accompanying seminar for Tranzit. Not in the muggy auditorium, but directly in the environment he wished to…
Vietcong versus Dodge Ball Jiří Ptáček | q & a | 01.01.2003
VIETCONG VERSUS DODGE BALL
"The Brno region advance design firm Pterodon has been active since 1998. But the groundwork was laid by Jarek Kolář and Petr Vlček earlier, in 1993-1994, when they created the adventure game The Secret of Donkey Island, one of the very first Czech games. It was distributed exclusively by mail, delivered in simple plastic bags. It is certainly one of the precursors of more advanced works in Czech…
Design Runner Jiří Ptáček | theme | 01.01.2003
DESIGN RUNNER
When I came round to discuss an interview, Petr Písařík started planning what should be said in it. I did not want to hear about it in advance, so we lingered over the pictures instead. Large canvases that Petr had covered in adhesive tape with layers of coating and spray coating stood packed, just as he had brought them back from the most recent exhibitions at Brno’s Dům Pánů z Kunštátu and…
Kaprun Jiří Ptáček | theme | 01.01.2003
KAPRUN
From time to time I get excited and have the feeling that I know Petr Brožka. When I have a moment to think in peace, my conviction loses strength. The thing is, I continue to be irritated by his mixture of sharp intelligence and endless self-irony.In the beginning, I asked him for an author’s postscript to his work, and I was surprised to receive an outline of an interview that he’d made with…
Petr Strouhal Jiří Ptáček | new faces | 01.01.2003
PETR STROUHAL
Born in 1977, after four years of studying mechanical engineering, in 2001 he entered Martin Mainer’s studio of painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Brno.Petr Strouhal topped his contemporaries at the otherwise deadly stinking selection of Mladé maso (Young Meat) in the Prague gallery U zlatého prstenu (2002). Visitors of his installation inserted their hands into some kind of incubator in the…
Tomáš Bujňák Jiří Ptáček | new faces | 01.01.2003
TOMÁŠ BUJŇÁK
Born in 1979, Tomáš Bujňák, after attending several secondary art schools in Slovakia, was educated at the School of Fine Arts in Bratislava (20002001) then at FUTU in Košice (2001-2002), and last year he moved to Miloš Šejn’s studio of conceptual art at Prague’s AVU.From the overview of art training, one might understand Tomáš Bujňák as being one of those hyperactive art jumpers. No joke:…
