Pavel is mostly focused on the story behind story. This said, he captures everyday motives from environment around him, letting it to unfold it´s tale. He tends to lyrical attitudes and at the same time abolishing clichés of visual language. However, his language is not a chaos, yet well build collage of symbols. Symbolism is the important part for this artist. He uses photography freely, often mixed with installation works. Similarly, his story lines are not strict, rather well suited for a viewer to immerse into.

Medium Loci

The title of this exhibition project – “Medium Loci” is a combination of words medium and genius loci. We use it this way to point out the fact that place or region itself, through it’s genuine qualities can represent visual medium.
We have decided to deny the general concept of transporting the same artworks around several art venues and showing them over and over. Instead, we prepare the entire show specifically for the selected location. We visit it in advance so we can react in our personal way. Exhibition usually consists of photographs, video installations and figurative reactions to the gallery space.
In each city, artists dig in local history,current political and cultural situation. This way, they often provide local people with new point of view, both socially and aesthetically.
