POSSE 228

Toto je vizuální útok na ikonografii dneška podél našich cest.

Boj za veřejný prostor, k jehož okupaci zde dochází.

Po pětadvaceti letech žijeme stále ve stínu minulého režimu.

Společnost díky svému pasivnímu přístupu dodnes není schopná definovat hranice toho,

co je veřejné a co soukromé.

Je to odraz nás všech a naší lhostejnosti.

Vyzývám k občanské neposlušnosti.

Politická propaganda ve veřejném prostoru dosáhla obludných rozměrů.

Proto je třeba radikalních gest!

Kolik energie a úsilí z veřejných a nebo právě soukromých zdrojů toto vše stojí?

A komu to slouží?

Chcete nás uklidit, unifikovat a umlčet?

ZKUSTE TO!!!

PORTRET 25.10.2013

Pravá, nebo levá? Není to jedno, když
na stejném základu to sedá?

Jeden na druhého myslí, navenek tak sebejistí.
Tajně se mají stejně rádi, se zarudlými tvářičkami se zarputile škádlí.

Jeden zrcadlí se v druhém, jsou přeci stejným - politickým druhem.

From the creation of insurgent public spaces to the playful disruptions of public life, Cultural Hijack – curated by artists Ben Parry and Peter McCaughey – explores the role of art and the artist in contemporary society and offers the opportunity to rethink the growing field of intervention in relation to cultural activism and social change.


The exhibition presents a series of provocative interventions which have inserted themselves into the world, demanding attention, interrupting everyday life, hijacking, trespassing, agitating and teasing. Often unannounced and usually anonymous, these artworks have appropriated media channels, hacked into live TV and radio broadcasts, attacked billboards, re-appropriated street furniture, subverted signs, monuments and civic architectures, organised political actions as protest, exposed corporations and tax loopholes and revealed the absurdities of government bureaucracies. 


Cultural Hijack
occurs in three parts: a survey exhibition of documented artworks from across the globe, supported by a programme of artists’ talks; a programme of live-interventions, in which artists arrive in London to agitate and infiltrate the urban territory, starting in Bedford Square and moving out across the city; and CON(tra)VENTION, in which the programme culminates in a carnival weekend of lectures, symposia, screenings, participatory actions, interventions, dinners and debate.

urban (shoot) paintings 2011

2011/05

Continuation of the project Urban Shoot Paintings of 2009. The theme – a gesture signalling

an attack – remains the same. Its essence, however, relates more to the very roots of guerrilla

art (for it now involves a homemade weapon and ammunition), established at the end of

the 1960s in the US by activist groups refashioning billboard adverts. Furthermore, I move

around with the weapon in the open urban landscape. In my case, it is not an attack on

a particular advert but billboard as a medium in general, which in this context represents

a painter’s canvas in the urban landscape.

50 square meters of the public space

The illegal appropriation of public space with no apparent intent



Duration: 54 days (September 04 - October 27, 2010)

Location: Palackeho square, Prague - the so-called "Czech Hyde Park" - allegedly the most

liberal spot in the country, approved by the authorities for holding any unannounced public

gatherings.



Have we grown accustomed to having our living space curbed by just anyone? Is public

space a mere myth? In the current society, our living space is defined by legal norms

and regulations, the same way as fences demark the choices of our free movement.

Only by attempting to cross those boundaries, we learn how limited the space we live

in really is - that we are not as free as it may initially seem. We are getting the sense

that the individuality of today is destined to an existence amidst restrictions.
