The current exhibition in on-line gallery explores two different modes of presentation of the mobile phone video. Organized in cooperation with PAF.
David Přílučík, Czech visual and intermedia artist and conceptual explorer, presents in his solo exhibition Taxonomy of Fame one of his newest videos, Show Me a Hero. The aggressive screensaver alternates with the distribution of the video via rather intimate performance, to which every viewer/performer naturally creates their own, private choreography of movements.

ScreenSaverGallery is a gallery of contemporary art within your screen saver. “ScreenSaverGallery” should not be perceived just as platform for presentation of contemporary digital art, but it should also become an experimental environment for its development. SSG allows the artists as well as the users to experiment with the situations in which the screensaver may appear or with the technical possibilities of the gallery. Above all, the gallery invites the users (that means YOU as well) to consciously put the exhibited works of art into various visual contexts, to examine these contexts and therefore to shift their original concept.
"We don’t do exhibitions, we do screensavers!"
Authors of the concept: Tomáš Javůrek & Barbora Trnková. Curators: Tomáš Javůrek & Barbora Trnková, Marie Meixnerová, Robert Sakrowski.
The gallery operates from the first quarter of 2013.
