Rudolf Němec: I don’t understand even Nietzsche
Museum Kampa, U Sovových mlýnů 2, Praha 1 - Malá Strana, 118 00
- Fri 8. 6. 2018 – Sun 9. 9. 2018
Museum Kampa is preparing an exhibition dedicated to the oeuvre of the painter, graphic artist and poet Rudolf Němec. The focal point of the exhibition will be Němec’s anthropometric paintings showcasing the imprint of a human body into an enamel layer on canvas. These will be accompanied by the pieces containing some templetes, both found or fabricated, and the pictures created by colour splashing – first using a felt tip-pen then airbrush and sprays.
Since the phenomenon of corporeality is closely relatedto Němec’s happenings, often held together with Eugen Brikcius, the exhibition will also present Němec’s drawings of shadows of passers-by or the happening called Kuklení, 1970 (Pupating) when the artist wrapped up himself and his friends in a plastic film.
