Petr Písařík’s work for the cloakroom (Oléne Studio). The discussion will be hosted by the exhibition curator Marek Pokorný.
The opening of the presentation of a work of art by Petr Písařík for the Oléne Studio (cloakroom) and a look back at the artist’s show SPACE MAKER in Galerie Rudolfinum (2018). In a dialogue with one of the key artists of the Czech art scene after 1989, Marek Pokorný will try to find out whether modernism has become our future, where the mimicry and other creative strategies in Písařík’s work come from, and identify the link between fashion, space and melancholy.
Petr Písařík was born in Třeboň in 1968. He presently lives and works in Prague. In 1987-1994 he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague (studios of Stanislav Kolíbal, Milan Knížák and Aleš Veselý). In 1989-1993 he was a member of Pondělí collective (Milena Dopitová, Pavel Humhal, Petr Lysáček, Michal Nesázal, Petr Zubek). He shows in the Czech Republic and abroad. His work could be seen at Galerie Rudolfinum in 2006, as part of the group exhibition Acne – Czech Modern Painting from the Richard Adam Collection.
