Monika Fryčová: ART & BUSINESS
A celebration of life, freedom, support and cooperation, but at the same time bureaucratic regulations, controls and the struggle for a little economic independence. That is the exhibition ART & BUSINESS by Monika Fryčová, which is on display at G99 in the House of the Lords of Kunštát until 12 February.
...There are prices to fame, alright
All of our time spent in flashes of light
All you people can't you see, can't you see
How your love's affecting our reality
Every time we're down
You can make it right
And that makes you larger than life…
ART: the two Videos celebrate the hedonistic self with the best that life could possibly offer, a freedom ride and free drinks at a party, accompanied by the helpful support and cooperation of numerous hosts and volunteers ... “larger than life”.
BUSINESS: the documents and correspondence on the walls tell something else. They show the bureaucratic struggle, on the rocky road to a little economic independence, papers from the local authorities, customs, goverments patronizing artistic expression, burying it under tons of bureaucratic requirements ... “There are prices to fame, alright”.
This ongoing antagonistic interaction is: The Performance.
