Lukáš Machalický’s art is characterized by the purity of form, installation and architecture which seemingly excludes any spontaneity or randomness. Yet, deviations, balancing, ambiguity and systems that fail are a key factor in this artist’s work. It is not necessary to give specific examples of situations, the breadth is substantial – from banality to seriousness. Machalický’s exhibition on the historic principal floor of Colloredo-Mandsfeld Palace is a logical follow-up to his exhibitions In the Park (New Jörg, Vienna, 2018) and Body Immersed in a Fluid (MeetFactory, Prague, 2017). The strictly geometric composition and symmetry of the piano nobile calls for a kind of space mystification. Inevitably, the originally intended perfection is marred by fundamental faults and failures. Indeed, the false appearance, uncertainty or ambivalence is typical of this artist.
