Petr Veselý / A Knife in the Cupboard

Fait Gallery, Ve Vaňkovce 2, Brno

Curator: Barbora Kundračíková

Opening day: May 12 2021, 5 pm–9 pm

 

Petr Veselý handles words as naturally as he does pictures. He develops both from the intersections of the seen/the heard. the touched/the thought. The seeming lightness of these combinations offsets the weight of the material to which the artist always returns and in which his works are anchored. If we understand the creative process as the layering of meanings, Petr Veselý’s work embodies a paradox, evidence of radical subtraction. Within this process, he demonstrates that a restricted position of a viewer does not necessarily mean an equally restricted presentation of a subject, let alone its misunderstanding. 

The exhibition explores the current work of the Brno painter, poet, teacher, curator and author of numerous radio plays and sets it in the context of his lifetime oeuvre, pointing out its inherent constants.

The solo exhibition Warm Greetings presents the latest work of the Slovak visual artist Kristián Németh, characterised by a natural combination of intimate topics and a universal content. The artist is not afraid of institutional criticism which he masks by a symbolic visual language inspired by and derived from reality. In his project called Warm Greetings he examines the subjects of supreme power, unshakeable external interventions, social norms, pressure and expectations affecting an individual or a group in the modern world. Using the form of minimalist physical gestures and interventions, he creates – in a compositionally and dynamically balanced exhibition environment – artefacts developing a vocabulary of personal symbolism.
