History,different perspective and four angles...


The installation History, Different Perspectives and Four Points of View is trying to reflect our recent past by means of photographs of the bridge connecting the two buildings of the Slovak National Gallery, built by the architect Vladimír Dědeček in 1977 during the normalization period in Czechoslovakia.The architecture of the exhibition spaces in the SNG, as well as the exhibition panels created for the Gallery of Modern Art in Roudnice nad Labem, originated in a specific political context and have been recreated here as a minimalistic object.For me, photography is a medium that is closely linked to the technological possibilities in which the time plays an important role not only from the physical but also symbolic point of view.The exhibited photographs of the interiors of the SlovakNational Gallery are multi-exposure, taken from four different angles.Part of the installation is a large minimalistic object - a remake of the Roudnice Gallery exhibition panels - and a three‑dimensional sculpture created using a black and white gradient on barite photo-paper. The exhibition is completed with a close-up counter-view into the camera lens, representing a tautological, yet essential and inevitable reference point.
