Michal Moravčík’s (1974, Bratislava) works are often related to a local context. He applies mainly to a memory, an urban and national context a a life quality. In terms of urban planning he is concerned with nuances of unfinished details, layers of unsolved infrastructures or subsequent simplifications of developers. His critique of nationalism comes out from politically historical context, themes flexibility or changeability of history that are, if required, deformed by a current political propaganda. DKP (an abbreviation for a stock of tiny and short-term objects) further to recent discussions in the Czech republic and Slovakia deals with a problem of art institutions. It represents two memory models of architecture: the academy of arts (Academy of Arts Architecture and Design in Bratislava) and the national gallery (the Slovak National Gallery). Both represent an aesthetic experience of the next generation of artists and general public, the academy controls the future of art and the gallery influences its social significance. The models of DKP are furniture objects, whose structure imitates existing buildings according to a memory. They are imperfect architectonic models the measure of which is derived from the actual buildings just in rough proportions. The standard size of interior furniture becomes an accesible measure for the viewer.
