Visiting Artist Lecture Series: Tomáš Džadoň, Aspiring to Eternity

17 March 2022 @ 17:00 - 18:30

VALS Tomas Dzadon

Tomáš graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Bratislava and the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. He spent a year at the Art Institute in Kankaanpää, Finland and had residencies at the Neue Galerie in Graz, Austria, and at the Center for Central European Architecture in Prague. He works in a non-conceptual way, especially with architecture, often reinterpreting conventions and views associated with socialist modernism placing it in context with traditional folk architecture.

His lecture will present 3 key projects, which, as the artist puts it, aspires to exist for forever. In Folk Architecture Monument (2013-2016), history as burden should be „placed“ forever on the locator’s shoulder. Children’s playground in Leopoldov (2019, Slovakia) was built with the ambition to educate children to acknowledge the plurality of the environment we live in. Finally Exhibition in Rudolfinum searches for the source of our reproaches and our self-questioning towards the living environment that we slowly oppress.

The lecture will take place at PCU’s Bishop’s Court campus and will be live-streamed on Zoom. To join the zoom lecture use this link at the advertised time: https://praguecityuniversity-cz.zoom.us/j/95929328008
