Helio x Kato 2016
Galerie 207, Prague

instalation: 3 monitors, 2 projections, metal strings

contemplation about duets:
“this is what my aikido sensei sent me once, they were two biggest persons in jiu jitsu and judo world one from brasil, one from japan, and normally the fight would start immediately, here they are holding each other not able to start, because who starts becomes automatically victim of other one ..as they are so fancy good samurais”

helio and kato in the same bed in the hotel room:
helio knows that kato doesn't sleep
but he doesn't feel the need to wake up 

both are calm and relaxed

turtle and the priest 2016

tattoo inspired by the set of drawings done during the residency Petrolio in Puglia, Italy
AMT gallery - in collection of residency Petrolio

last two days on residency I developed several drawings with charcoal which were related to two situations.
One was the single event connected to the dead turtle body on the beach, which we found on our way 
to Torre Guaceto. The second was repetitive one: the greeting with priest every time at 9pm when we 
went to Serra Nova to catch the wifi at Leo's bar. 
Later on I ve met one lady looking for some motive for her first tattoo.
I offered her the motive of the dead turtle within the background story in order to support the sublimation of 
the turtle's body into her body and the initiation of the new background story.

Schovat se pod rouškou tmy a dělat věci neviditelné *
To hide under the drape of dark and do invisible things 

Artfilm, Trenčianske Teplice 2014-2015
Instalation: drawings, video, sound

The project initiated during the Artfilm festival 2014 and finalized during the same festival in 2015  was dedicated to one of the top modernistic slovak architecture LD Machnáč in Trenčianske Teplice designed by architect Jaromír Krejcar in 1929 and realized in 1932 which is nowadays due to ambivalent commercial interests of the city in dilapidated condition.

Initiated by Abandonned recreation (Martin Zajíček and Andrea Kalinová) artists enter the building. police come. they don't have permission to enter, they come again later but more gingerly, they see just traces of people living there...some fresh and old shits in corridors, mainly on the second floor... empty space, great light..... they drink wine on the roof and talk about Krejcar, Corbusier, beginning of 30's , Czechoslovakia and from todays perspective try to rethink socialistic ideas and ideals which are embodied in the core concept of the architecture itself.....

The orbits of the planets and the path of a cannon ball

performance in Mousonturm Frankfurt, DE 2015
https://vimeo.com/146968696

exhibition in gallery SODA, Bratislava, SR, 2014

instalation
found text in residential library*, drawings (frotage inside of burnt sequoia), 2 video projections


*Appolonius who lived about 230 B.C. broke away from Plato's rule and started to study curves we cannot draw with
a compass or a ruler. He focused his attention on studying three curves, which correspond with the boundary of a slice

of a cone. Two of them are ellipses representing the orbits of the planets. The parabola represents the path of a cannon ball. (Mathematics for the Million by Lancelot Hogbene - found in a sequoia grove in California).

A drawing illustrates the space that was created as a result of these two sections and it refers to the shape of a burnt sequoia. Burnt hollow cores of these trees used to be accommodated by original inhabitants of sequoia grove - native americans. Later due to colonial trends their hypothetical observation of the orbits of the planets was intersected by the observation of the path of the european cannon ball.page13image9816
