GAMU: Drunken forest
April 14th – May 20th
We would like to invite you to the Gallery AMU, where Drunken Forest exhibition opening will take place on Thursday, April 13, from 6:00 p.m.
In geology, drunken forest refers to vegetation growth growing on a slowly slumping hillside. The tree trunks grow in crooked ways, and the forest looks disorganized. For geologists, this signals that the bedrock is moving. In the exhibition's title, where students from the studios of the FAMU Department of Photography in Prague will meet, the drunken forest refers to the instability of the conditions in which these young people grow up and to artistic creation as repeated attempts to maintain balance. Through their works, however, the exhibition also points out how the tool we generically call photography and its department; reacts to these movements. Curator Jiří Ptáček was invited to select the exhibitors.
Artists: Luisa Havránková, Ava Holzman, Eliška Klimešová, Tobiáš Páral, Adam Rolex, Tereza Šimoníková, Jakub Tulinger, Šimon Varaus
