Zbigniew Libera - WALSER

WALSER, 2015, Poland, fiction, 78’ directed by Zbigniew Libera


Libera’s film is a snapshot of an imaginary paradise: the director paints the portrait of an ideal tribe, described as “a sort of achievement of the dream of hippies to return to nature, a Slavic version of Avatar”. The members of the tribe, who are handsome, young and immortal, live in their idyllic world until they are paid a visit by an outsider, a representative of civilisation: Walser.


Screening is a part of exhibithion A Forming of Inevitable Blue / HIT Gallery 

Realised in the framework of Small/Big World project smallbigworld.net

A Forming of Inevitable Blue

The point of departure of the exhibition in the HIT Gallery is the film Walser by Polish artist Zbigniew Libera, which became a motif when considering the concept of a curatorial project by the artists collective APART. Its central theme is the question of parallel history/future with an apocalyptic vision/ the power conflict of man and his standing in society. The aim of the exhibition, using the gallery’s basement spaces, is to separate the strata of this theme, drawing on a variety of approaches to artistic form and content by artists living in countries such as the USA, Holland, Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The exhibiting artists are Mehraneh Atashi, Ján Gašparovič, Floris Kaayk, Martin Kohout, Tavi Meraud, Pavel Sterec and Zbigniew Libera, whose film will be screened on June 15 in the Mladosť cinema.

The Medium between a Flat and a Space


What kind of consciousness? Visual understandable – understanding by repetition, splitting of a space.


What sort of understanding of a space? Condition of frontal sight; to be between the wall that I can see and that which I can not see.


Identification with actual kind of consciousness according of observation of a space.


Between two there is always the one. The consciousness.

Erik Janeček - Not sure if she's dead or she only sleeps

Tuesday 11.11. 2014 o 16:00
Námestie Slobody, Bratislava.  


Not sure if she’s dead or she only sleeps.


In the beginning the fountain served for everyone. Fountain.


Artistic gesture of Althamer underlined her new meaning, thirsty ground, desert. Ilona Németh joined the idea by changing water into mist, which covered the space of the plaza. Only one element was needed to achieve entirety. Fire. 


Whether it’s a simple game with words, fountain (architectonic element) or fountain (pyrotechnics). Focusing attention on past things, reacting on history of certain space. They are considered as finished but, still with vibrating echo.


I use aspects of a volcano as a metaphor. Dead element, extinct. Its not sure when it will “come to life” again and makes damage. 


From its entrails, which i think about as something that belongs to the past, suddenly the sound of the arriving eruption comes and opens the question if it is really over and if changes come in waves.
