Daniel Pešta: DeTermination

DOX Centre for Contemporary Art, Poupětova 1, Praha 7 - Holešovice, 17000

When?

26. 1. 2018 – 7. 5. 2018

The De-Termination is the largest solo exhibition of this multimedia artist in the Czech Republic and presents a selection of his works relating to genetical, racial and social determination of a human, for which he was awarded in 2017 at the London Biennale. The exhibition follows the line of some crucial motifs – a map, genetic code, and the topic – Jesus Christ, which repeat in a cyclic way in his work and with which he systematically deals and works.

His video art, paintings and objects concentrate on a person and his/her inability to resist his/her fate and on the destructive power of the anonymous society. A two-headed calf has become the icon of the exhibition – a „split creature“ evoking mercy, mock or resistance, which looks down from its pedestal at the absurdity of unavoidable catastrophes caused by a human.
