Frame story is a literary devise that connects a series of otherwise unrelated stories. Similar to “The thousand and one nights”, where Scheherazade hypnotizes the sultan by telling him an endless sequence of stories that originate in one another, Czech artist Petr Krátký deconstructs the art interpretation through the frame-story. However he uses this technique not in a narrative way, but in Derrida deconstructive manner. The audience will assist in Petr’s re-interpretation of the artworks by Svatopluk Mikyta through comprehending it in a personal way, detached from the original concept of the artwork.
“Searching and finding answers can often be in conflict with the real intention of the author. By the questions they can find out what the viewer actually sees and reads in their work. Possibility of individual interpretation of art is one of its greatest strengths so the value of interviews can never be wrong.” (Petr Krátký)
The selection of Petr’s video art will be displayed within Svatopluk’s exhibition.
Born in Prague in 1985, the young and reckless Petr Krátký was a resident of various international programs such as Rhode Island School of Design (US), Erasmus Willem de Kooning Academy (NL), Academy of Fine Arts (CZ), and now Art Quarter Budapest (HU). Furthermore, Petr Krátký also had several solo and group exhibitions in Czech Republic, US and Netherlands.
