Robin Seidl: Terraformation
18. 6. – 11. 7. 2021
opening: 17. 6. 2021 from 6 pm
curator: Dušan Zahoranský
Is an intermedia artist who examines our late capitalistic information society, from the perspective of a compassionate amateur botanist. Everything we do on the Earth can be viewed as a certain form of organic, although currently rather catastrophic, process. One of Robin’s themes, for example, is fashion and clothing as the means for self-destructive identification. He recycles sweatshirts and t-shirts, and creates fetish objects from them – hunting trophies without the victim. In his current exhibition, he invites the visitors to a botanical corner with a unique type of plant – a flower that visits us from the future and has the ability to interfere against the flow of time and cure our present.
Robin studied at the Faculty of Arts in Ústí nad Labem, and currently he is a student in Pavla Scerankova’s and Dušan Zahoransky’s studio at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague.
