Fotograf Gallery

— Permanent Transformation

Opening: on Thursday, November 17, at 6 pm
Curator: Jiří Ptáček

“Permanent transformation” or “transformative permanence”? It’s all the same, because the second word refutes the first. The Rafani group took a chance on some school kids and they, in a split second, turned a gallery space into the monstrous St. Euphoria Chapel. It represents the vital force of man as a blinding, burning light, but also is metaphor for the raging vortex of the collective psyche, overstimulated emotions and torn up folders of the social compact. The Rafani group enters this space with images that touch the nervous system of society and of our age. We would gladly say that they are out of joint, had they any joints to begin with.



Fotograf Gallery is supported by the Czech Ministry of Culture and during the year 2021 by a grant from the City of Prague amounting to 630 000 CZK.
