Anna Mária Trávničková
Along with the summer, our two newest residential artists – Lucia Gašparovičová and Ján Skaličan – arrived. As usual, during the evening you will be able to look into the residency studios of Jan and Lucia, get acquainted with their work, enjoy a glass of wine and evening with us!
Lucia Gašparovičová is a visual artist originally from Žilina and currently based in Bratislava.
Ján Skaličan (1989, Bratislava, SK) is a Slovak visual artist who works mainly within the field of photography and overlaps into thinking about his possibilities at present. His work is a kind of testimony, an attempt to articulate, express the thoughts based on thinking about a particular place and its past in an effort to restore the world’s experience, to the non-transferability of materiality and its memory.
We cordially invite you to the premiere of a short CGI animated movie, which was created during the three-month residency of Serbian artist Sanja Anđelković as a part of the K.A.I.R. Košice Artist in Residence and its theme “Interconnectedness”, which points to the need of today’s society to be aware of its connection with the environment beyond the borders of its own region, state or nation, but also beyond the borders of the human species.
Within the K.A.I.R. residency, Anna Manankina has decided to focus on the mental aspects of the book Three Ecologies by Felix Guattari. He emphasizes the concept of ecology as a tool for analysis and pragmatic suggestion for the future. Her exhibition we will open soon in Šopa Gallery!
