Fuck Your School, Fuck You
February 21 - March 12, 2021
After deconstruction and dismantling of all the recyclable materials, interior and exterior equipment only a derelict skeleton of my primary school was left.
The building of the primary school Komenského 1 in Trebišov in Eastern Slovakia has become an abandoned architecture in the recent years (the school building was sanitized in 2010). Last years I have been systematically working with this place as a part of my urban explorations. I myself attended the school in the years 1988 – 1996 therefore I do not detach my own personal experiences connected with this place. They are intertwined with a documentation of a current status quo.

Tomas Kocka Jusko
10. February -28. February 2021
Alex Selmeci and Tomáš Kocka Jusko are an artistic duo from Slovakia, now based in Prague, working together since 2017. They are focused on object-oriented work, using a medium of the exhibition to create complex environments and intermedia installations. They mainly work with building and technical materials and their specific identity or poetics, dealing with matters of variability, disassembly, reusability or conservation of things in general and of their own works. They are trying to find aesthetics which could respond to the accumulation of a great amount of already produced materials. In their most recent work, Selmeci and Jusko are interested in various possibilities and distortions of time perception, using their own timeline to create objects with fictional past, which is yet to happen. The timeline acts as a cycle of visions and failures and constant overthinking and follows also the authors' interest in the mutual impact of fiction on reality and vice versa.
