‘Post-Trauma’ at Avoid Floating Gallery /2016


Men At Work /Henrik Ekesiöö

Employees are tight to the job, their usefulness for the business is fully exploited. Working time is perfectly divided and planned for the maximum of the profit. Every spare moment is effectively used. If they can be in charge of some of the working time they revitalize their brains and bodies and the work can be concluded with higher effectiveness and better results. In one building material supply store in Stockholm the team of workers is using spare time to exercise their graphic skills in highly democratic manner. They vote on the theme and rotate each one’s responsibility. Each week the subject changes and the results are surprising and overcoming our low expectations.


The Farm /Nongkran Panmongkol

What is the European Union for the people of Europe themselves? What is the real information they gain and from where it comes? From the government or the media? While joining the Union from different perspective of life and from different economical backgrounds it is hard to agree on anything. The rich are here to share with the poor. EU budget. To vote in and out of the Union. Everything seems ironical in a very serious way.


A Pedestal /Jan Stolín

We always expect visual art in concrete space and environmental setting. Ourselves we try to limit art to fit our ideas and interpretation of the world. This way we often kill its ability to open new area of discussion and its main structural element that gives it importance and actuality. But art is essentially subversive and it fights our rigid conceptions and gains its own space in our lived environment. Pedestal is the whole system with its own function – it doesn’t have to support any other concept, material or a thing.


Reality Touch /Lexa Peroutka

We are materialist, we have and do not have certain things. We are related and disconnected through the material part of our life. With the help of material we wage the wars and create relationships. Without material background we are nonexistent. None. Nichts. Ingen. Zero. Exclusive champagne sets things right into the right perspective – but if the conflict appears all is upside down – and our fragile part is hitting the hard ground.

Post-Trauma is a collective exhibition of artists from Stockholm and from Czechia. In this context, traumas are meant to be sudden social changes that have great influence on cooperation and communication, as well as defining our living space – the space that we identify ourselves with, and the space that we feel connected to. The individual artists involved are working with three-dimensional and multimedia materials. Their work is an attempt to define the space/room on the basis of its material and/or social quality. Because each artist has a different vision of the space and they are occupying different geopolitical spaces, their work is the “documentation” of a struggle for the concrete space.

“Unlimited Growth”

Everyday we consume more than we necessarily need. It is embedded in our consciousness, we accept it, it is drive of our life. It is its fulfillment. Consumption is necessary part of functioning economy. I am investigating ground principles of the market/capital and peoples’ manipulation within the market environment. I translate the results of my investigation into new visual and functional forms where I apply my personal conclusions and critique.

„Nekonečný růst“

Naše spotřeba přesahuje naši každodenní potřebu. Jsme si toho plně vědomi. Konzumace je motorem našeho života – jeho smyslem – jeho naplněním. Je součástí fungující ekonomiky. Zkoumám základní principy trhu/kapitálu a překládám je donových vizuálních a funkčních forem, kde používám moje osobní shrnutí a kritiku.

/A Lecture by Victor Marx in Jaroslav Fragner Gallery in Prague /26 Nov 2015 /6 pm

Victor Marx (1983) is visual artist and architect who lives and works in Stockholm. He works with contemporary social themes that he incorporates into his urban interventions/projects. The scale of his work is somewhere between architectural and more sculptural forms using elements of performance, social interaction and participation.

His work transcends several fields of cultural/art production with main focus on social and urban solutions in Swedish context. However, his themes have a much broader character and more of a global importance, dealing with topics such as changes of current social fabric, multicultural identity, art and cultural activities within economically defined environment and their independence, DIY architecture and architecture in the margins, regeneration of unused public spaces, or renewal of local social interaction etc.

Victor Marx’s work is frequently mentioned in Swedish media because of its connection to ongoing heated public debate on Sweden’s future and future of public/street art.

Victor was one the founders of Cyklopen, an independent culture house in Stockholm, of which he was also the architect. Cyklopen gained its firm position in Stockholm’s contemporary cultural/art scene for its community oriented approach and differentiation away from the traditional and official cultural/art institutions, often limited by their hierarchical and bureaucratic nature and rigid organizational methods. Cyklopen is situated in Stockholm suburbs, the melting-and-meeting pot of various cultures (Eastern European, Middle Eastern…) where future Sweden is just taking shape.

Work of Victor Marx is currently documented by Martina Iverus for the new art program ARTityd (Swedish TV 1).

/Victor Marx & Mikael Tofvesson (in Czech)

Victor Marx (1983) je vizuální umělec a architekt, který působí ve Stockholmu a pracuje se současnými společenskými tématy, které interpretuje svými urbanistickými intervencemi/projekty. Jeho práce kulminuje mezi architektonickými objekty a více sochařskými formami s aspekty performance, společenské interakce a participace. Jeho práce překlenuje několik oborů a žánrů – hlavní důraz klade na řešení společenského tématu v kontextu současného Švédska. Tato témata mají globální charakter – proměna současných společenských vazeb, multikulturní identita, umělecká a kulturní činnost v čistě ekonomicky definovaném prostředí a její nezávislost, architektura svépomocí a architektura na okraji – regenerace nevyužitého veřejného prostoru a obnovení lokálních společenských vazeb.

Práce Victora Marxe se několikrát objevila v popředí veřejné debaty (v médiích) ve Švédsku. Victor je iniciátorem a architektem nezávislého kulturního domu Cyklopen ve stockholmské čtvrti Högdalen, která je ovlivněna silnou vlnou imigrace z Východní Evropy a Předního Východu. Jeho práce je mapována v dokumentu švédské televize SVT1 v novém programu o současném umění – ARTityd (film Martiny Iverus).

Mikael Tofvesson (1983) je vizuální umělec působící rovněž ve Stockholmu, který se dlouhodobě věnuje street art a příbuzným technikám uměleckého projevu – grafika, ilustrace, 3D animace… S Victorem Marxem se podílel na realizaci nezávislého kulturního domu Cyklopen a je členem street art kolektivu (jméno je skryté), kterého je Victor Marx rovněž členem. Z etických a praktických důvodů prostředí street art upřednostňuje anonymitu autora. Mikke tak pod svým pravým jménem vystupuje vlastně poprvé v kontextu vizuálního umění.

Multinational performance art evening at Fylkingen!

A collaborative exchange project between PALS-performance art links from Stockholm and Ferdinand Baumann Gallery from Prague. This is a first attempt to connect these two distant performance art scenes. Both participating art organizations have several years of history and they represent the young emerging performance art scene in their own domestic and international context. Their first exchange took place during “Hunger“ performance festival from 22 to 23 May in Prague this year. The second stage in Stockholm is part of a series of new international exchanges of performance art organized by PALS with other art initiatives abroad (a previous event was held at Fylkingen this year; Pals Play Tag Part One: Poland-Sweden).

/Hunger /Hlad Performance Festival in Prague /Inv /22 May-23 May 2015

Hunger / Hlad Poster


Swedish participation /23 May 2015/

For approximately a year, I have contemplated the idea of bridging two distant and unconnected art performance scenes – scenes that are primarily disconnected for geographical and chronological reasons. The Hunger festival in Prague is the first here to establish communication and exchange between such scenes. Both are of a smaller size and play their roles within the broader fine art scene based on their geographical spheres of influence. The performance scene in Stockholm is now represented by several contemporary art performance venues (Live Action in Gothenburg, Palsfestival in Stockholm and Friktioner International Performance Art Festival in Uppsala), with all having started pretty recently. Palsfestival in Stockholm was formed in 2012 and is our primary partner.

Performance depends on many environmental, social, economical and political aspect of the place where it is applied – so the differences between the scenes can be as much as the difference of the entire social and cultural fabric that each society is built from – so I like to mention geo-body (hammered down by Thongchai Winichakul) – the entirety of the elements that form contemporary country boundaries.

… Unless There Is a Scandal  (45min)

(Collective presentation/talk – Success Story, Scandal and What Is Left – Contemporary Art in Stockholm – Nongkran Panmongkol, Erik Wijkström, Henrik Ekesiöö, Alexander Peroutka)

Erik Wijkström

Please Feed Artist  (90min)

This performance is concrete realization of a situation in which we usually function – that is we operate throughout our existence within given frames that are often created by other people. Our survival is based on cooperation.

Henrik Ekesiöö

Fantasies of a 10 Year Old  (20min)

Henrik Ekesiöö is performing what a 10 year old boy said he would do to him. The threats were made like a game, a game made to shock the opponent, and if there is no reaction you have to come up with something more brutal. Reality and its upper layers has shifted, it seems the real world is not far from our dreams.

Nongkran Panmongkol

Cleaning Job  (10min)

Hunger in developed society is consumption. If you are hungry or not you will always be a consumer. In parts of the world things are produced, and in other parts things are consumed. The origin of consumables can be traced and then we can complete the picture of the world we are living in.

Romano Krzych  (30min)

The real ethnic French cultural underground is represented by Romano Krzych, who appears to have been living in Prague for several years. His performances use the disturbing language of noise in a very clear, radical and almost harming way.

“Nowadays even the idea of real-life results from a subtraction. Same for appetite: so much to eat and such a lake of hungriness. Misery is a threat but discipline of poverty let open a door. Consequently I try to cultivate some healthy disappointment.”

Klas Eriksson

Alexander Peroutka

Klas Eriksson, Nagkran Panmongkol und Alexander Peroutka arbeiten mit sozialer Intervention. IhreArbeit wird von ihrem Aufenthalt bzw Leben in im geopolitischen Raum Schweden beeinflusst. Traditionell haben soziale und politische Ideen in Schweden eine eigene autonome Interpretation und Umsetzung. Die Gesellschaft scheint hier homogener zu sein und sich rund um ein allgemeines Einvernehmen zu organisieren. Diese Interventionen erwarten ein soziales Umfeld, das seine eigenen Limits aufweist, Grenzen, seine eigenen einzigartigen Erwartungen.

Klas Eriksson erforscht soziale Macht, Hierarchie, soziale Kontrolle und Gewalt innerhalb kultureller Vorstellung und den Einfluss von Pop-Kultur auf die Funktion der heutigen Gesellschaft. Seine Forschung verleiht seiner Installationen und Videos einen performativen Charakter.

Nongkran Panmogkol wurde in Thailand geboren und lebt in Stockholm. Sie arbeitet mit Vorstellungen von kulturellem Konflikt, kultureller Hegemonie und analysiert die Probleme, die durch die non stop Modernisierung der westlichen / globalen Gesellschaft, Grenzen der menschlichen Einwirkung und persönliche und gemeinschaftliche soziale Verantwortung.

Alexander Peroutka lebt und arbeitet in Prag und Stockholm. Seine Arbeit basiert auf der Erforschung der Logik kultureller und politischer Strukturen, die innerhalb jedes geo-politischen Raumes authentisch sind. Er schafft seinen eigenen kritischen Ansatz, der dreidimensional wird in Form von Installationen, die auf Dokumentationen, Datenbanken und sozialen Modellen basieren.


Klas Eriksson, Nongkran Panmongkol and Alexander Peroutka work with the idea of social intervention. Their work is influenced by their stay or life in the geopolitical space of Sweden. Social and political ideas in Sweden have traditionally their own autonomous interpretation and implementation. Here it seems the society is more homogeneous and is organized around common understanding. The focus of the presented work lies on artistic investigation into social realities limited by geopolitical space. These interventions expect a social environment that has its limits, borders and its own unique expectations.

Klas Eriksson is investigating social power, hierarchy, social control and violence in cultural imaginary and the impact of pop-culture on function of contemporary society. His investigations leads to a certain performative character of his installations and videos.

Nongkran Panmongkol was born in Thailand and lives in Stockholm. She is working with the ideas of cultural conflict, cultural hegemony while she is analyzing the problems that are created by non-stop modernization of western global society in terms of human interaction limits, personal and collective social responsibilities.

Alexander Peroutka is an artist from Prague and Stockholm. His work is based on investigations into a logic of cultural and political structures that are authentic in every geo-political area (geo-body). He creates his own critical approach that takes three-dimentional form of his installations. His installations are based on documentaries, databases and social models.
