The show takes the viewer through three chapters of Damage Decoding: Archeology of the Future. The exhibition reflects on what damage has been done or might still be awaiting us through artistic practices such as film, sculpture, and painting by the artists Sophie Hundbiss, Ivana Pavlíčková, Patrik Kriššák.
Throughout the exhibition, this narration evolves in the space through a gradual light concept.
You enter the show and see Sophie Hundbiss film Index of Lilith on a screen. It introduces the visitor to the idea of damage as both ancient and consistent in present topics.
Ephemeras of the film lead the viewer to the center and second chapter of the exhibition. Installed here are ceramic plates by Ivana Pavlíčková, arranged in a set-up that references gamer aesthetics. The plates are similar to relics that depict an antiquitized gaming culture.
In the last and lightest room are dark, contrasting paintings from Patrik Kriššák. The artworks in this chapter deal with ecological damage and ask of a possible end to the narrative.
