What is the most necessary thing from Kokolia, what should one carry with them at all times, like an emergency box? It could be, for example, the experience that a picture is not simply a derivate of reality, that we should expect from it much more. In Kokolia’s artistic theology, a picture doesn’t exist without a viewer. Kokolia paints with the awareness of the distance, angles, direction of motion, spent time and manner of seeing which happen to the viewer in front of a picture. The installation in the Fait Gallery reveals the core of this know-how.

Czech photographer Alena Kotzmannová (*1974) and Q:, one of the occasional incarnations of visual artist and musician Igor Korpaczewski (*1959), in an elegy for two voices on the subject of a far too human planet. Their parallel exhibitions create a double image of an impending apocalypse, yet happening without sound and fury, as a gradual fall into the desert sand. While Kotzmannová melancholically picks up the remains of the human civilisation, Q: laments its defiance, materialised in unreal visions of a possible escape.
