Exhibition Practice of Solitude combines the work of two environments and two authors in a mutual space. The first environment consists only of the memories of the Western Fjords of Iceland, where Lucia Gašparovičová spent one month during the winter this year. The second place represents Košice, where Lucia was creating together with partner and artist Ján Skaličan during two summer months at the residency programme K.A.I.R. Košice Artist in Residence. Practice of Solitude is not an objective representation of reality.
Artist-in-Residence program (AIR) of the Schafhof – European Center for Art Upper Bavaria and K.A.I.R. Košice Artist in Residence invite visual artists from Slovakia to take part in the two-months residency in Freising, Germany.
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.
