Exhibitions

‘Video and Photography for Drawing for Performance for Drawing’ sounds as if the artists David Böhm and Jiří Franta are searching for the beginning of a mantra. Indeed they are both ‘draw-ers’ and the final product of their project can be said to be drawings.

But what from the complex process of creation is the essence of their work: the process itself, performance, drawing, or the performance of drawing? For the show at Karlín, this cycle could be simplified to ‘exhibition of drawing’.

Although artificial, the process of drawing is real, despite disproportionally long brushes set up by long water pipes, rods, a balloon with a brush controlled by its driver, a cast drawing with snow into snow from a pot, spatial drawing with a string and erasing with bike tires.
