2020, Digital photograph C-Type print

These somewhat dull enlargements refer to the specific Czech tradition of “non-photography” with their framing and theme choice. Like many other associations that can cross our mind – climate change, drought, negative human impact on the environment… The images you look at are primarily a photographic record of Marek’s performative interventions in public space. He captured them after creating precise imitations of puddles on dried Prague sidewalks in late spring. The essential absurdity of such activity, on the one hand, develops a specific kind of play with a random observer or a gallery visitor, on the other hand, it has its clear and meaningful ground in the context of art, it associates artworks of the recent past and at the same time it reminds us of predominant themes of today’s world.
