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. At the same time, you will be able to look into space which is not normally accessible for ordinary visitors and get acquainted with the projects of our residential couple.
Jiří Suchánek (1979) is a Czech musician, multimedia experimenter, and developer who’s permanent, and often interactive, audiovisual installations are placed in natural and public spaces. Among other things, he examines the durability of electronic media in unstable climatic conditions and looks for ways to (de)synchronize sound and light.
