EAGLES & DOVES

What is the form of national identity today? What influence do various symbols exert upon it? Can we positively identify with a nation without nationalistic and xenophobic overlays? The exhibition Eagles & Doves presents works by contemporary Slovak and German artists who respond to these difficult questions with broad perspective, criticism and humour, in a playful and open manner. Contemporary art can be actually a medium of intercultural communication: the encounter, not the clash, of cultures.

DAVID BÖHM AND JIŘÍ FRANTA: No One's Going to Laugh!

Works of Jiří Franta and David Böhm most frequently involve an attempt to find new contexts and meaning shifts in the classical medium of drawing, exploring its physical limits; they may also, convey thoughts on the wider relationship between image and text structure.

ILONA NÉMETH: Eastern sugar

Eastern Sugar was the name assigned to the largest Slovak sugar factory Juhocukor (“Southern Sugar”), situated in Dunajská Streda, following the accession of a foreign majority shareholder in 1993. Redesigned in this fashion (there were promises of investment, revitalisation, international connections and an overall flourishing of sugar production in Slovakia), the factory survived only until 2007. Then its definitive closure was announced, production ceased, and the need to compensate for lost supply with imports was acknowledged.

ŠTEFAN PAPČO: Psycho-vertical

The Tatra mountains also function as Papčo's exhibition space. Indeed, he climbs and places sculptures on the mountains’ platforms, exposing them to today’s ever-changing climate. The carved wooden figures live through and record the extreme weather conditions. Papčo’s attitude is programmatically opposite to any “extraction”, it engages directly with the matter of the mountains and reflects on what it means to read the Earth as bodily matter.

CARMELA GROSS: The Photographer

In a 1993 text that analyzes Carmella Gross’s work, one of Brazil's most exacting and most direct critics, Aracy Amaral, claims that “the artist stands behind their trajectory”. If this reasoning is generally valid for any artist, it is undoubtedly true for someone like Gross. This should be emphasized all the more today, almost twenty-five years after the emergence of everything (she produced, learned, and created during all those years) into the light of the world.

Exhibition

ERIK ŠILLE: error

The exhibition is an overview of the work of Erik Šille (*1978, Rožňava), one of the leading representatives of the “boom” of Slovak painting after 2000. The distinctive style of the author draws on the animated world of comic characters, commercials, and everyday banality, which acquire an existential, apocalyptic expression in his paintings. The dialogue of art history with the world of pop culture creates new contemporary pseudo-myths and hybrid fairytales.

LIKE AT HOME: Model Situation of Slovak Sculpture in the 20th and 21st Century

An exhibition created as a “model situation” can be understood as one of the (relatively time-efficient) ways of fulfilling the institutional need to organize and exhibition or an exposition reflecting the crucial changes in the development of our sculpture in the 20th and 21st century, from traditional sculpture to contemporary forms, with the aim to educate the public and contribute to general recognition of sculpture.
