Krištof Kintera: Do Not Litter, Do Not Feed Birds and Do Not Push the Help Button (Yet)

The human anthill of New York produces an infinite amount of objects and subtle messages that Kintera aims to separate, decode and then translate into wall drawings and site specific installation at the Czech Center New York gallery.

 

Opening: November 16, 7PM in the Gallery

Curated by Charlotta Kotik.

The human anthill of New York produces an infinite amount of objects, or material sediments, and subtle messages that Kintera aims to separate, decode and then translate into wall drawings, video screening and the final site specific installation Do Not Litter, Do Not Feed Birds and Do Not Push the Help Button (Yet) at the Czech Center New York gallery. 

The film Postnaturalia, in it’s NY Premiere, is a part of previous project that simulated the genesis of the new post-nature and compared the similarities between the behaviour patterns of the technical and natural spheres. It did so through herbarium assemblages, an extensive installation and a studio turned to a Laboratory. The Postnaturalia film offers a visual experience, macro-shooting the very installation from above.

The video work The Hands Tools of Brain is a recording of the material transmutation, with only details of hands on display and no faces. Avoiding the role of a standard documentary from the artist’s studio, the film is rather a conceptual record of the transformation of the material into a work of art.

On view: November 16 - December 6, 2018 

Krištof Kintera (born 1973) is one of the most successful and celebrated Czech artists of the youngest generation. His oeuvre is characteristic of a certain doubt concerning the possibilities and role of the arts. He creates sculptures and installations by combining or altering ordinary objects in unusual ways and brings to life very complex installations. Kintera explores the current social issues with sophisticated electromechanical and kinetic-acoustic objects, video, drawing and installation. He received the Personality of the Year award for living artists in 2011 and was nominated for the prestigious Jindřich Chalupecký Award three times.
