On Wednesday, 14th November, David Přílučík’s exhibition Donor opens in Gallery XY, Olomouc. It starts at 6 pm as part of the exhibition program of the 17th Festival of Film Animation and Contemporary Art, PAF Olomouc 2018.
The exhibition project explores and triggers the complexity of the relationships which arise in the formation and re-distribution of ownership and exchange mechanisms in the field of energy resources. In the context of the gallery’s exhibition and artistic practices, it thus accentuates the processes which we have considered neutral due to their seeming givenness. It is up to us to decide if we will be silent, if we share or if we give space to others. What kind of echo do we decide to send to a dense cloud, knowing that our star, like all of us, is a donor that it owns?
David Přílučík (*1991) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. During his studies, he studied in the studios of Jiří Lindovský, Tomáš Vaněk, Ruth Noack and Simon Waschmuth. He also participated in an internship program in Israel - at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design. He is a member of the Studio Without Master and Artyčok TV association. His work has been exhibited not only in the Czech Republic, but also in several other countries (USA, Israel, Germany, Russia, Hungary). In his present work he reflects on and co-creates the relationships and situations which shape our social, cultural and political givenness. For his video – called Blind Bidding – Přílučík won the main prize in the Other Visions CZ competition at the 16th Festival of Film Animation and Contemporary Art, PAF Olomouc.
The exhibition is held in collaboration with PAF Olomouc as a part of the program of the 17th Festival of Film Animation and Contemporary Art, PAF Olomouc 2018.
