The Gallery Where I Had an Exhibition – Milan Salák in Prague
In Milan Salák’s concept, the launch of the exhibition will be the start of the countdown to the liquidation of its physical substance – not by some wild act of unrestrained destruction, but in the professional, standard manner customary following the conclusion of an exhibition.
The visitor of the exhibition opening will not be asked to help and neither will she or he be ushered out of the de-installation space. Within the bounds of possibility, the visitor should behave as at any similar event: gaze around, drink wine and converse. In the subsequent days, the empty space of the gallery will be accessible to visitors during usual opening hours of the exhibition.
The organizing institution was sentenced to the exhibition by a jury verdict last May, which found tranzitdisplay guilty on all counts within a staged critique in the format of a Kafkaesque “Trial”.
Exhibition from 22.2. to 10.3.2013
Opening: 21 February 2013, 7 p.m
Location: tranzitdisplay, Dittrichova 9/337, Prague 2, CZ
