EXHIBITORS

Alex Zelina & Radovan Dranga

Alex a Radovan tvoria objekty plné káblov, svetiel, prírodných materiálov a to všetko podporené hudbou a zvukom. Vykresľujú naše nočné mory, kde sa svet zmenil na predstavy dystopickej budúcnosti. Vytvorili si vlastný koncept. Držia sa základnej myšlienky: technológia sa nám stáva prirodzenejšou ako samotná príroda. Svet, kde sa príroda musí prispôsobiť technológiám, aby prežila. Myšlienka je ukázať, kde sa my, ako ľudstvo, môžeme ocitnúť. V dobe, keď nám technológie začínajú byť viac prirodzené, ako živé formy. Objekty sú inšpirované prírodou, sci-fi svetmi, počítačovými hrami, vizualizáciami generovanými neurónovými sieťami (AI) a štatistikmi o klimatickej kríze. Stavajú fiktívne svety a živé tvory, ktorých základným stavebným materiálom je ľudský odpad. Plasty, káble, technológie… Tieto stvorenia sa riadia inštinktom a prispôsobujú sa, aby prežili. Hráme sa na bohov, ale príroda zvíťazí.

Alex and Radovan create objects full of cables, lights, natural materials, all supported by music and sound. They picture our nightmares, where the world has changed to visions of a dystopian future. They created their own concept. They stick to the basic idea: technology is becoming more natural to us than nature itself. A world where nature has to adapt to technology to survive. The idea is to show where we, as humanity, can end up. In a time when technology starts to be more natural for us than living forms. Objects are inspired by nature, sci-fi worlds, computer games, visualizations generated by neural networks (AI) and climate crisis statistics. They build fictional worlds and living creatures, whose basic building material is human waste. Plastics, cables, technology… These creatures follow instinct and adapt to survive. We play gods, but nature wins.

PORTFÓLIO

 

MUSIC FOR THE EXHIBITION

Počas výstavy Alexa Zelinu a Radovana Drangu môžete počuť hudobný set, ktorý je vytvorený zo skladieb hudobného zoskupenia EMPHASE.

Emphase je audiovizuálny projekt tvorený spojením dvoch umelcov, Patrika Bittera a Gábora Szűcsa. Zoskupenie Emphase kladie svojím prejavom dôraz na rovnováhu medzi nádhernými melódiami a temnými rytmami scény melodického techna. Kombináciou skladieb z vydavateľstiev ako Afterlife, DNC Limited, Hypnus, Oddity, ale aj z vlastnej tvorby, a skladieb od menej známych producentov, chce prinášať na parket stále nové a nové hudobné kombinácie a objavy z tejto underground scény.

During Alex Zelina‘s and Radovan Dranga‘s exhibition, you can hear a music set created out of songs of a music group EMPHASE.

Emphase is an audiovisual project created by a combination of two artists, Patrik Bitter and Gábor Szűcs. By its expression, Emphase accentuates the balance between beautiful melodies and dark rhythms of the melodic techno scene. With a combination of songs from publishers such as Afterlife, DNC Limited, Hypnus, Oddity, but also from Emphase’s own work and songs from lesser-known producers, it wants to constantly bring new and new musical combinations and discoveries from this underground scene.
