The opening of an exhibition by the Olomouc-based artist Radim Měsíc co-presented by Deniska Vitrine and the Brno-based KonText Gallery (TIC) took place on Tuesday May 16th 2017 at 5:30pm.
Radim Měsíc's first solo exhibition God Loves You expresses the fascination by the cult of Jesus Christ and Christian aesthetics in general - the best selling merchandise articles in the history of mankind. Měsíc's approach is not primarily critical, he rather aims at the transition of the spiritual aura of the captivating motives into a gesture of irony against the practice of the Church and the culture of consumerism today.
A joint project of the Olomouc vitrine gallery Deniska Vitrine and the Brno-based KonText Gallery presents the Olomouc artists and transmits the specific poetics of intimate Olomouc exhibtions into the environment of decorative niches and nearby spaces of the KonText Gallery in Brno. The past projects in Deniska involved atists from outside of Olomouc who often created site-specific projects for the particular archutecture of the exhibiting space and its surroundings. Within the KonText project, the organisers were aiming to present the artistic inverventions of Deniska-affiliated artists in a different context. Six solo exhibitons will take place during 2017, aside from Radim Měsíc by the artists © merry, David Bartoš, Radim Scholaster, Martin Fišr, Vladimír Havlík.
