Census installation/exhibition — zvukac at Display Gallery, Prague
Author: zvukac (Miloš Vojtěchovský)
Curators: Zbyněk Baladrán, Lukáš Likavčan and Display - Association for Research and Collective Practice
The key figure of the exhibition Census is Miloš Vojtěchovský (alias zvukac), who prepared for Display a processual project composed of three parts. He explores themes of dichotomies, measurements of external processes, spirituality and species extinction, and he shows us images and sounds which attempt to transcend processes often hard for us to understand and imagine. A ‘census’ means a qualified approximation, or inventory-taking, a tool of grasping and control. But how to conduct such an enumeration when everything is in constant motion? Perhaps a synthesis of techné and poésis can help us capture the geological processes of the Earth as an image of liquid matter whose addition and localization make sense for only a fraction of a moment, in order that the human might better gain a frame of reference and evaluate its own position.
