The already third » Selection « from the collection of Fait Gallery is this time dedicated entirely to the most recent work of the youngest generation of artists who have just entered in the art scene. The exhibition presents some key work of young artists as well as works indicating their future direction. Chronologically, it directly follows the previous two exhibitions which focused on the Czechoslovak modernism and the art of the second half of the 20th century.
This exhibition, among other things, tries to present the direction in which the contemporary art practice is going. Therefore, the selection of works is not limited thematically or by a medium.
There are classical media, painting, drawing and photography and media quite already common in art profession, such as video art, installations and light installations. The spectrum of approaches is also wide; it ranges from concentrated search of original language in the tradition of abstract painting, conceptual examination of options and nature of drawing, to more literary contents and sensitive exploration of shared intimacy, the relationship between culture, images and memories, to the works that deal with the actual functions of art and semantic shifts thorough time. Art may rely on traditional themes of landscape, figure and space and reformulate the neglected or reveal the paradox of contemporary perspectives of perception and understanding these symbols. The depth and diversity of the spectrum that the contemporary art scene has to offer are represented here, necessarily, fragmentally and incompletely, nevertheless, the selection represents sufficiently a specific range of views and procedures that are discussed and formulated in contemporary art. The unifying element is therefore the time the works were created, our present on which the authors are based and which they reflect, although each in quite peculiar way.
