Madness Is Like Gravity - Presentation by Hubert Czerepok
Following the presentation all are welcome to join us for a light summer drink in the garden of the residency house.
At the core of Hubert Czerepok‘s works lie the connections between fiction and historical events. It is not the facts themselves that interest the artist, but rather the way they begin with shifts, mutations, and unimaginable formal and semantic transformations. Conspiracy theories appear repeatedly in Czerepok’s oeuvre. He looks for a source of evil and madness. He explores the areas where morality has fluent boundaries, where the right and wrong exchange their positions. He looks for the boundaries of knowledge beyond where our imagination and logic can’t reach. He questions conventional interpretations, and infects history with a virus, weakening the traditional course of narration: it is his aim to construct ‘simulations of history.’ His goal is not to contradict anyone or prove anything. Czerepok navigates and manipulates the viewer in order to generate uncertainty. Drawing, installation, video and photography: Czerepok’s strength lies in always choosing the most appropriate medium for each subject.
