LIMITED SERIES OF PHOTOGRAPHY
Sculpture by Adam Šakovy.
V dielach Adama Šakového je práca s iluzívnosťou a zameniteľnosťou médií dlhodobou stratégiou ktorú uplatňuje aj v tejto limitovanej sérii printov.
Priestorová enkaustika zo serie malieb „Bez Komentára“ je ojedinelou snahou autora o vytvorenie trojrozmerného sošného objektu. Objekt už vo svojej plastickej podobe môže byť na prvý pohľad ľahko zameniteľný so živou mačkou a táto ilúzia je ďalej vygradovaná jej fotografickým reprodukovaním. Týmto posunom sa mení aj čítanie daného diela a dvojrozmerný obraz nadobúda ešte reálnejšiu podobu než jeho 3D predobraz.
Svätopluk Mikyta is an artist who mediates between the distant poles of binary structures like the local / global, private / public, representational / abstract, past / present and many other dualities to explore his own vision about an artistic position which is deeply rooted into the Central European socio-cultural reality. Through his series of works realized in various medium from drawings to ceramics, from performative actions to installations and in many different traditional and experimental artistic technics, he is always been seeking the most appropriate way to express the complexity of being determined by ideological narratives, intellectual burden of unsolved historical heritage and the ubiquitous presence of the post-communist condition.

He develops reflections on the function of painting and its (in)ability to reflect reality in the latest cycle Stones (2019/20), in which, unlike artificially constructed “landscape paintings”, he works with (relatively) existing material. Šakový’s program takes over figural scenes, details or lesser-known views of the top works of European late Renaissance and Baroque sculpture. He trims the composition in a punk way. Follows gestures or specific body details of figures. He approaches historical material analytically and without emotions. He is not interested in an excursion into the history of art, nor in mythological stories or iconography of saints. His curatorial selection is connected by an interest in the motif of drapery, ecstatic body, athletic muscles or round curves.
