White Action/Black Reaction

(art work by Ondřej Bílek, white, black and colored stuff)

The base of the installation is formed by a group of everyday objects, white and black. The centre is occupied by Ondřej Bílek’s 2010 sculpture “The Sharkˮ. The installation thus interconnects ordinary products with a foreign work of art, while its visual essence is reduced to a two-colour arrangement. The elementary is what the eye sees, the reaction is what the brain understands, and the consciousness is the potential participation on the immediate appearance of the artwork. The gallery visitors are kindly asked for a removal of any of their own black or white items.
