We cordially invite you to the opening of Karolína Kohoutková exhibition I kdybys vyhořel, plápolal jsi, which is the result of a three-month residency stay within the project K.A.I.R. Košice Artist in Residence. In her project, the author elaborates on several layers on the topic of education, education system, and its conditions.
We cordially invite you to Kasárne Kulturpark, where you will have a unique opportunity to experience a poly / interactive sound installation through your senses – sight and hearing – on which Jiří Suchánek – a Czech audiovisual artist, musician, multimedia experimenter, and developer, worked during his two-month residence stay within the project K.A.I.R. Košice Artist in Residence.
On the 12th Open Studios Night, Karolína Kohoutková who works in the field of body design and Jiří Suchánek, an audiovisual artist and experimenter, will introduce themselves.
The premiere of a short film by a young Serbian artist Ognjen Tadić created during a two-month residence within the project KAIR Košice Artist in Residence. In his work, the author was inspired by the local story of Roman Anděl about the revelation of a forest spirit during camping near Bukovec and at the same time a Slavic legend of a forest demon named Leshy.
Ana Gabelaia is a Georgian curator who arrived from Tbilisi for a residency research stay. The concept of the exhibition and the potential artists are still subject of the research, but before her return to Georgia, Ana will host a curator’s talk where she will present the draft of the project and share the residency experience in Košice.
The first workshop dedicated to children will focus on developing their creativity as a game with identity. Children will design and create their own Leshy, guardian of the forest, a creature from Slavic mythology. Together we will make masks of various shapes and colors by adding various components that children collect in nature or bring them from home.
