Gepark on Galota fest

Project Gepark by Lukáš Matejka and Štefan Oliš from TRAKT group was firstly introduced on Galota festival in August 2016. It combines concentration, balance and harmony during exercising on the special Gepark logs. Slovak music producer Jarduuzzu added a music background, which inspired participants to great performance. The highlight was dancing improvization on Gepark logs by dancers from Human Art Space.

Taste W.

The connection of the word „ochutnávka“ („taste“) and letter „V“ in the title of the exhibition suggest wine tasting, to which is all concept based.  Classic wine tasting become art peace. Also work react very strightly on process of openings of art shows and elitism in the art.

In the process, Prievidza

There is a path that precedes the creation of a single art. Mostly, this process is called formation or creation process. It is an activity of artists, creators, reaching some goal. The result is an art as such, in any form or format. The process of creation is an integral part of the work. Despite of this fact the concept of this exhibition called “The process” aims to separate the process of creating of the output.

PERFORM ACTION - Minifest of the Action art and performances in Banská Bystrica (Slovak National Uprising Square and Cinema “Star”) happened on May 19th, 2010. Students of the Department of Intermedia and Digital Media - FFA - Academy of Arts participated on this project. We could put this event under a certain form of happening when one day the streets literally were dominated by students from FFA in Banská Bystrica. Their actions disrupted the stereotype of a typical day in the town.
