David Böhm and Jiří Franta: Nearly nothing is complete
(12. 6. - 4. 7. 2010)
It is as if searching for the beginning of a mantra. Undeniably David Böhm and Jiří Franta are as strangely put, “drawers”. It frequently seems that the final product of their projects is drawing (which technically fits). But what from the complex process of creation is the essence of their work: the process it self, performance, drawing, or the performance of drawing? For the show at Karlín, this cycle could be simplified to “exhibition of drawing”.

Pavel Sterec: Don't We All Secretly Hold Our Hands under the Table Dividing Us?
(9. 12. – 9. 1. 2011)
Tables serve various functions–eating, working, writing, and meeting. Activities at different types of tables, however share a common denominator – they are all codified bodily actions. In order to recognize them, we must learn what functions a table serves. Relative activities take place on or above the table. A table can thus be also understood as a platform, which establishes socially acceptable bodily behavior.
