This year's theme – Urbanism Animated – was an impulse for the author to decompose chronological phases of his diploma thesis I'm Because My Father Had an Orgasm (the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, 2012) into a completely new structure of perception.
The exhibition 1/16 for Vitrína Deniska is one part of Petr Krátký's exhibition project for the Festival of Film Animation in Olomouc. This year's theme – Urbanism Animated – was an impulse for the author to decompose chronological phases of his diploma thesis I'm Because My Father Had Orgasm (the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, 2012) into a completely new structure of perception. The irreversibility of the individual phases in the process of the work and its presentation is Petr Krátký's long-term thematic sphere of activity. He illustrates the adoration of socially and economically constructed archetypes of contemporary visual arts that also includes the policy of gallery practice. The theme of the exhibition sequence is the presentation of geometrical abstraction – defined by painting, its model and an illusional record from the gallery space.
In the original project the process was decomposed and the author was creating within his own exhibition, which was intended not for the general public, but for video documentation. Petr Krátký worked on the The Road (2012) in terms of the tradition of geometrical abstraction. The motif in the painting was ironically derived in the ratio of 1:1 from the Czech state norm for local type of roads, so called districtroads. The image was decomposed into regular rectangular formats which enable black and white surfaces to be interpreted in diverse variations (1/16 is on display in Olomouc showcase). The painting thus becomes an artefact and at the same time a stage prop for transformations of presentation space.
