The exhibition opening of the show Still Motion, by Slovakian artist and curator Ivana Hrončeková took place on Wednesday the 21st of June.
The installation in the Deniska Display Case represents a type of defiance by the author against the essential principles of the moving picture, but above all its inability to exceed his own space-time frame. The static medium of photography, which was chosen for the exhibition as the primary form of expression, will, on the contrary, be in the clearly delimited space of Deniska to demonstrate phased movement through the multiplied situations of everyday scenes.
The slovakian artist Ivana Hrončeková (*1987), graduate of the conceptually and contextually oriented studio environment of FaVU VUT in Brno, is systematically interested in literature, linguistics and their interconnection in the structure of the moving picture. Informed by structural film, she sets her shots in rhythmic alignment with text creating associatively composed visual scores, whether selected according to a certain linguistic formula or a purely subjective aesthetic aspect. The narrative line essentially conveys subtitles that support the visual message or establish new meaning for the documentarylike shots, which are mostly focused on the everyday or stylized still-lifes consisting of all sorts of banal scenes.
