Komentovaná prohlídka výstavy Ana de Almeida: Z tuku a města

30. 11. 2021 → od 17.hodin

Komentovaná prohlídka výstavy Ana de Almeida: Z tuku a města s kurátorkou Barborou Hájkovou. 

Továrna na Střekově přes sto let ovlivňuje strukturu města i kvalitu života jeho obyvatel s pozitivními i negativními dopady. Průmyslová výroba ovocných šťáv, mýdel, zubních past a jedlých tuků ovšem dalekosáhle přesahuje hranice města. Jádrový olej, který je jednou z hlavních složek hygienických produktů, se do Ústí nad Labem dovážel především přes Holandsko z kolonizovaných zemí. Pěstování základní suroviny má za následek ekonomické, ekologické a především sociální katastrofy globálního významu. Na pozadí politických a technologických změn a zanikající výroby se proto v současné době navracíme k přemýšlení o ekologické udržitelnosti, domácí ekonomice i celkovému dopadu průmyslové výroby na podobu společnosti. Tyto okolnosti umělkyně Ana de Almeida sleduje na výstavě Z tuku a města. Pracuje s archivním materiálem spojeným s průmyslovým závodem, ovšem adjustovaným do signifikantních artefaktů – ručně vyráběných mýdel.

DISTURBED BALANCE REVISITED

Opening: 1. 12. 2021 at 7 pm / Klíšská street

2. 12. 2021 — 13. 2. 2022


The Ústí nad Labem House of Arts is launching its program in the reconstructed seat with a group exhibition project entitled DISTURBED BALANCE REVISITED. The project concept came out of the mutual dialogue of historical works presented in 1993 by the establishing circle of Ústí nad Labem authors in two editions of the DISTURBED BALANCE exhibition — in the Municipal House in Prague and the Emil Filla Gallery in Ústí nad Labem, and completely new projects of younger artists born in the eighties of the twentieth century, who had the opportunity to get familiar with the atmosphere of Ústí nad Labem during their studies and this experience shaped their authentic creative attitudes. The mixture of the wide intergenerational artistic expressions is integrated by responding to the defining atmosphere of paradigmatic change and associated concerns, uncertainties, imbalances, but also engaged attitudes and fundamental responsible decisions in almost thirty-years-period and naturally different social contexts.

Ana de Almeida: From Fat and the City

Opening: 10. 11. 2021

11. 11. — 31. 12. 2021

The factory in Střekov district has been influencing the structure of the city and the quality of its inhabitants lifes for over a hundred years both, in positive and negative way. The industrial production of fruit juices, soaps, toothpastes and edible fats extends far beyond the city limits. Kernel oil, which is one of the main components of hygienic products, was imported to Ústí nad Labem mainly via the Netherlands from colonized countries. Cultivation of this raw material means for local economics and the ecological and social structures a heavy load of global significance. Against the backdrop of political and technological changes and declining production, we are therefore currently returning to thinking about ecological sustainability, domestic economy and overall impact of industrial production on the shape of society. The artist Ana de Almeida incorporated these circumstances into her artwork by choosing the archival material. A fundamental inversion can be found in the work — the soaps were produced inside the factory in Střekov (the main production item). However, Ana de Almeida presents the factory in artifacts with all its social, architectural and historical aspects inside soaps.

The main elements of his authorial projects are sound and movement. The exhibition project for Gallery 2 called Colors of Sound falls into the field of product design. There will be presented the author’s realizations of the devices, which are intended for sound playback, and a unique background is created for this presentation of speakers. When creating speakers, Jiří Bartoš uses basic geometric shapes and refers to the tradition of minimalist aesthetics. Bartoš combines a technical approach with artistic creativity, but always with regard to the high quality of sound/acoustics. Author’s audio sets have an amplifier and a built-in Bluetooth receiver.
