The exhibition of Kateřina Kábová and Josef Mach is the outcome of two final bachelor projects.

Kateřina Kábová's project 𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙨 𝙖 𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙩𝙡𝙚 𝙗𝙞𝙩 𝙤𝙛 𝙨𝙢𝙤𝙠𝙚 𝙞𝙣 𝙖 𝙜𝙞𝙧𝙡𝙨 𝙡𝙪𝙣𝙜𝙨, 𝙞𝙣 𝙖 𝙬𝙤𝙧𝙡𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙨 𝙖𝙡𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙙𝙮 𝙗𝙪𝙧𝙣𝙞𝙣𝙜? is presenting landscapes in a romantic dystopian haze, punctuated by reflections of civilization, subcultures and the virtual world. Through subtle symbols and compositional games, it attempts to reflect the fragmented reality of the digital age. Using the inner mythology of her landscape paintings, she attempts to urge us to be more sensitive to the world around us.

𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙞𝙛 𝙞 𝙝𝙤𝙡𝙙 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙝𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙡𝙚𝙩 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙞𝙣? Josef Mach transports us through the installed objects to a kind of dreamy, yet hopeless situation. In every drop of water, in every glow of metal, there is an energy that combines matter and emotion into a single endless stream. A wrought-iron bathtub, a wilting flower or a fragile door frame with nowhere to enter tells of the contradictions and uncertainty of the times we find ourselves in.

Kateřina Kábová (*1998) studies at the Studio of Painting 1 under the guidance of Marie Štindlová and Vasil Artamonov at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the Brno University of Technology. She also studied painting as part of a student internship at the Prague UMPRUM in the studio of Jiří Černický and Michal Novotný. In 2023, her works were presented at the Kingdom of Hex exhibition at the Meetfactory in Prague, We meet in heaps in Brno Siberia, or in Banská Štiavnica at the Josef Kollar Gallery at the exhibition Paths lead to the field and end where nothing hurts.

Josef Mach (*1994) is studying at the Body Design Studio under the guidance of Lenka Klodová and Karolina Raimund at the Brno University of Technology. He took advantage of an internship at the AVU in Prague in the New Media 2 studio of Kateřina Olivová and Darina Alster. He studied at the Iceland University of the Arts in Reykjavik as part of a foreign internship. Josef Mach's artistic work is mainly anchored in the medium of installation, which is sometimes transformed into a performative plane. In his works, he mainly deals thematically with emotions, which are based on collective experience and are a statement about more general contemporary phenomena.
