Vilém Novák
— They


Opening: Tuesday, May 14, at 7 pm
Curator: Jiří Ptáček

The longer we look at the moving cubes in Vilém Novák’s (1981) 3D animation, the stronger the impression we have that they act and communicate with one another. It’s like watching members of a foreign tribe.  We look in awe at the movements and the gestures.  We think that we have understood, but then we are immediately lost.  Novák’s animation is a parallel reality that shakes the certainties of our own.
