MONUMENT FOR A WITCH

CATHERINE RADOSA.


If today it is claimed, not without defiance, by certain feminist activists, the figure of the witch remains contradictory, provocative, paradoxical. She is never innocent, carried by a story that is not a fairy tale. To be designated as a witch
is always to be accused. And first of all, to be accused of being a woman. At best, under the burden of ordinary misogyny, of the banality of contempt for the feminine; but also in the criminal heritage, sometimes always active: for sometimes we still burn so-called witches in our days, as we did on a collective scale in the not so distant centuries when beliefs were used as a pretext for male domination. From the large-scale feminicide that Europe has been able to achieve to carnival performances, witch-hunting is never a game without consequences, nor are free the attributes of its representation. Can we, must we really forget, on the night of Walpurgis every April 30, in the joy of the festive bonfires, even under the appearance of the farce and the social custom of the celebration, the crimes of which they are the memory?

By placing it in the public space, in the form of a projection on architecture, the Franco-Czech artist Catherine Radosa offers a multi-level reading of the figure of the witch with Monument for Witch, a work created at the invitation of the
Luxfer Gallery at Česká Skalice. The projected video image is an ephemeral monument, a furtive apparition that slips into various parts of the city during the evening. It features a character whose clothing attributes, capes, dresses, serve
as a support for images from all kinds of archives - 19th century engravings, contemporary press images, activists' performances, but also elements (water, fire) and attributes - in a form of liberating choreography, sequences, moments
when the staged body devotes itself to a playful, emancipating, ironic but very incarnate Sabbath.

With the artist's distance, but also her commitment, with images that resemble documents and theatre, Catherine Radosa extends the evening of April 30 between celebration and denunciation, between festivities and satire.

Opening 13/10 from 7pm

 

 

Marika Volfová is a young artist, finishing the Faculty of Fine Arts in Brno next year. Originally, she expressed herself primarily through painting, bearing a significant drawing lines and certain rough ungracefulness. Later on, in 2015, she worked on strong, raw paintings based on sketches made during her trip in Northern Africa and the Middle East. It was a kind of travelogue into the depth of inherited memory, mythical landscapes of subconsciousness, where violence and sex create the first social archetypes of acting. Banal situation of peeing on the beach, gutted guts, expressive conception and colours. The desire for exotics and fear of the unknown in one. Volfová is successful in targeting the right emotional centres to induce strong experience, raising questions connected with contemporary globalization. 

The interest for different cultures led her to active help to refugees in the Greek camps, later on to organize independent culture in the Netherlands. At the moment, facing the real voluntary and involuntary nomadism, Volfová is considering her role of a professional artist, so the exhibition in Luxfer can be very dramatic – for her and for the viewer as well. Before the show, she will be staying in the gallery, creating a site specific project.

The paintings of Roel Jeroen van der Linden are binding together animality and diversity. Maritimes, portraits, figures, stillifes – all is mixed in the colourful boom in his work. His attitude to the medium is clear: A painting is always about painting and about the painter. Without painter no painting. Hence the painter is subject of the painting and because he/she paints, painting is subject of the painting. It's the task of each painter to research (paint) why he/she paints and to research (paint) the state of painting in his/her time. 

Roel Jeroen van der Linden graduated in Amsterdam and Prague Academy of Fine Arts. Now he lives and works in Prague.
