We cordially invite you to the first event of this year, where the traditional format of Open Studios Night is changing into a new form of Meet & Greet. The goal of this event is to provide an opportunity for closer contact and personal dialogue with artists in our community.
In the video installation High Fever, visual artist Eunju Hong presents a non-linear story of the mining industry and its associated mythologies and superstitions. Blending two worlds, she reveals the history of humanity’s desire for knowledge of the geological and dark depths of the earth through period mining mechanical machines.
Yulia Manukian’s research during her residency at KAIR focuses on the period of interwar modernism in Košice. She focuses on two levels of the city’s heritage: the architecture of the future and the promotion of a creative national and local identity.
A series of drawings and oil paintings by the Polish visual artist Beata Rojek presents a story in progress whose formal and symbolic starting point comes from the woods. The artist’s frequent presence in the surrounding forests of Košice becomes a tangible, present space, a source of events, and a network of emotional experiences.
As part of the artist’s two-month residency, we invite you to a drawing workshop, where together we will try to break the abortion taboo.
In this lecture, Eunju Hong will delve into a diverse range of topics encompassing the video work ‘Annagreen,’ exploring both its practical and theoretical dimensions.
