unconductive trash / Largely Observed

24.05.2023 - 29.07.2023

Fait Gallery, Ve Vaňkovce 2, Brno

Curator: Pavlína Morganová

Opening: 24th May, 7 pm


The title of the exhibition, Largely Observed, is inspired by one of the terms of the current earthquake scale. It defines a degree of a critical state that is observed but not necessarily viewed as fatal. The exhibition presents new works by a pair of artists (Michal Pěchouček and Rudi Koval) who have been working exclusively together under the unconductive trash label since 2019. The cycles of paintings and installations are divided into several wholes in which the artists explore not only their shared creative process but also some neglected images of the past. Through monochrome work with colour and figurative detail, they tell real stories of the 20th century that strongly resonate with today's lived reality.

Kateřina Vincourová does not exhibit often, so her exhibitions are naturally more concentrated. After some time, she now returns to the Fait Gallery with a project, in which she develops several parallel interlinking themes, particularly memory, body and the routine of everyday life. On one side there is the idea of travelling in time, in the sense of a collective as well as personal history, whilst on the other side there is the exploration of hidden, sometimes almost ethereal forms of physicality. The connector for both is a cross of sophisticated work with banality, thanks to which the author is able to take the most ordinary of materials and tell the most powerful of stories, these are often randomly found items and fragments of the material world. Kateřina Vincourová entered the Czech art scene in the early 90s of the last century and in 1996 she became the first woman to win the Jindřich Chalupecký Prize. The exhibition "WHENEVER YOU SAY.", in which Vincourová connects her sense for handmade detail and intimacy with the monumental scale of generous space in Vaňkovka in Brno, follows up the author's extensive exhibition in Špála Gallery in Prague (2014) and also anticipates her presentation at the exhibition Bittersüße Transformation (Bittersweet changes), which will be opened at the Kunsthaus in Graz, Austria from the end of May this year.
