Artists: Zbyněk Baladrán, Daniela Baráčková, Filip Cenek, Vladimír Houdek, Barbora Kleinhamplová, Tomáš Moravec, Lucia Sceranková, Jan Šerých, Roman ŠtětinaCurator: Karina Kottová
A selection of films, video-essays and videos in a curatorial concept of Karina Kottová (Jindřich Chalupecký Society) stems from an attempt to systematically merge the approaches of visual artists and the possibilities of presenting their moving image works, which are usually displayed in a gallery setting, in a form of a linear film screening. The connecting motif of the selected works is a certain type of geometry or structural grid, which becomes the holder of a narrative: in some cases a completely abstract one, or even lyrical, in other times engaged, touching upon systems we live in, the question of work, everyday concerns as well as their possible alternatives. The selection itself has its own rhythm; the individual works create the storyline through diverse combinations of text, image, sound and motion.
The selected artists have previously been finalists or winners of the Jindřich Chalupecký Award.
