The stylized vehicle is the work of an international artistic duo (Thai-Swedish multimedia artist Nongkran Panmongkol and Prague postconceptual artist Lexa Peroutka). Their Protocargo is an archetypal vehicle made of tubular scaffolding and multiplied bicycle components. The authors try to cultivate wild crops on it. The large object is complemented by a video recording of a performative event referring to the experimental preparation of food using wild crops. They thematize the element of migration – both in terms of human movement and in the context of the related global distribution of plant species. Pamongkol and Peroutka refer to the complex issues of transport and movement, borders and clashes of cultures, the roots of civilization, uni-versal economic laws and the interdependence and dependence of all these elements.

rec by Michal Ureš


Long grill that stretches from one side of the display window to the other one manifests the social situation of human multitudes. The long wheel is rotating slowly as social transformations are happening. It is traditional narrative of different cultures where the values are evaluated, codified, standardized and publicly explained and where high expectations of the future of current society are present.

Dlouhé grilovací břevno protíná výstavní vitrínu z jedné strany na stranu druhou a manifestuje společenskou situaci společenské masy. Dlouhé kolo pomaluje rotuje, paralelně probíhají společenské proměny. Je to tradiční popis, představení, symbol odlišných kultur, které své hodnoty předefinovávají, kodifikují, standardizují, normalizují a zveřejňují. Velká společenská očekávání se vytváří.

Installation av Alexander Peroutka (CZE /Tjeckien)


10 februari 17-22

02 10 – 02 26

Den tjeckiske konstnäre Alexander Peroutkas fontän med skräp i och videofilm med intervjuer på offentliga platser, vill väcka frågor kring en alltmer krympande rörelsefrihet.

The water basin installation occupying the gallery room represents an approximately neutral public place. It is a place where the various remnants of our one or more days´ valued things meet. However, even though the room is public, it doesn’t even mean that it is available to all. There is no sense of permanency, and all is subject to flux and change.

Public spaces are in a constant state of flux and are currently shrinking in favour of entrepreneurship and competition for business growth worldwide.

So, although public places seem to be in the public domain, they have in fact often already been sold off, leaving people isolated in an ever-diminishing realm of connectivity.

The litter and remains of our small private joys, and the results of hidden market mechanism are circulating inside the pool, switching places in reflection of the material
metamorphic cycles evident within urbanized spaces.

The basin is there to remind us of that which we value and is there to be compared to the personal interviews being presented on loop in the next room of the gallery.
