ARTPARK

EIGHT HEADS

With the exhibition A COOL BREEZE, Artpark, the relaxation and educational centre of Galerie Rudolfinum, gets a new look. As a reflection of the exhibition, the creative project by collaborating artists Barbora Fastrová and Johana Pošová under the title Eight Heads for Artpark, plays with canons used throughout history. The installation illustrates in a humorous way the rules on body proportions taught in drawing or modelling lessons. The viewer will have a chance to test – on their own body – their literal meaning. Until August, Artpark will run a programme of educational content for school groups but also for the public, including popular children’s workshops every Sunday.

Barbora Fastrová (* 1988) and Johana Pošová (* 1985) graduated from the Studio of Photography at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. They have been collaborating since 2014 when they had a joint exhibition in Berlínský Model gallery. Since then, the authors have had several exhibitions together in the Czech Republic and abroad and have participated in residential stays at INI Gallery and Meetfactory. Their work is not media-specific, but repeatedly returns to “poor” materials: they create sculptures from fabrics, paper and artificial objects made of ceramic clay. The strong visual aspect of the chosen material often refers to their interest in our relationship with nature and, more specifically, to the environment.

ARTPARK, which is relaunched in a new format with every new exhibition, seeks to tell the story of the exhibiting artists to adult and little visitors alike. Associated programming for schools or the public, as well as children’s workshops, are a regular feature. At the same time, ARTPARK is a hub for creative relaxation of Galerie Rudolfinum visitors.
