Disappearing Body Disappearing Body Pezinok-Cajla
9. oct 2021 — 8. may 2022
Exhibition lasted 211 days

The exhibition Disappearing Body is an experiential essay on the "disappearing" of physical bodies in our lives. It observes the general trend of decorporalisation of human existence, which has recently taken on new dimensions. Whether we regard the issue of different degree of physical „disappearing" within everyday life through the optics of geopolitical context, technological direction, "dissolution" of identities in online environments, post- or trans-humanistic theories, pandemic measures, spirituality, or self-observation, each of the aspects offers a wide range of interpretations. Similarly variable image is brought by the exhibition.

In the Shop Display: Martin Piaček In the Shop Display: Martin Piaček Bratislava
20. sep 2021 — 21. nov 2021
Exhibition lasted 62 days

Looking at the statue 26 October 1921, destruction of the Maria Theresa monument in Bratislava (2007 - 2019) by contemporary artist Martin Piaček (1972), displayed in the window of Esterházy Palace - it is crucial to realize that we are just a couple of meters away from a place where the monument to Maria Theresa was unveiled in May 1897 and stood until its vandalistic destruction during the First Republic. Its granite pedestal stood there for another four years, without a monumental marble sculpture, silent remorse and a symbol of human vandalism.

Potential Agrarianisms  Will There Still Be Sugar after the Rebellion? Potential Agrarianisms Will There Still Be Sugar after the Rebellion? Bratislava
20. aug 2021 — 31. oct 2021
Exhibition lasted 72 days

Potential Agrarianisms sets out to diversify agriculture and pluralise its histories, recovering suppressed peasant pasts and activating their unrealised possibilities, destabilising urban-rural dichotomies, repairing the disconnect with the natural world and restoring caring and reciprocal relationships to the soils and plants that nourish us. Uncovering its origins in colonial plantations and embeddedness in the operations of extractive capitalism, the exhibition explores alternatives to the globalised system of industrial agriculture with its patent formula of chemical additives, noxious pesticides and genetically modified seeds, vigorously cultivated with fossil fuel machinery.

In the Shop Display: Martin Bu In the Shop Display: Martin Bu Bratislava
18. jul 2021 — 19. sep 2021
Exhibition lasted 63 days

Several works by the designer and ceramicist Martin Bu (1976 - 2021) could be used as a concise spatial illustration for a dystopian novel. The world inside it went through a cataclysm. Some of the buildings have melted away, scattered with "corpses" of military machinery, others becoming habitat of sea predators. Nevertheless, Martin Bu does not concern himself with mere sarcastic commentary on various escapades of the genus Homo technicus from the position of critical or experimental design.
