The austerity of the execution of predominantly low-key installations already typified Kovanda’s early actions in which he examined the most elementary possibilities of non-verbal communication. Like his actions in which the artist’s physical presence was gradually replaced by its record, his installations and interventions demonstrate, in non-invasive fashion, the transformations and changes of the forms of ordinary objects. 

 

 



Karel Adamus / Minimal Metaphors

The concept of Karel Adamus’s exhibition involves, in particular, the Minimal Metaphors series which since 1974 has been distinctly marked by the conceptualization of the artist’s work. Adamus has developed this distinctive type of conceptual poetry, consisting of metaphors created by verbal or visual elements and their subsequently reassessed meaning in the title, since 1976, in the Copies series in which, apart from a play with the terms “original” and “copy”, he also articulated or altered the meaning of the original work by means of drawing or watercolour painting.
