Teige in Poruba is an accidental connection that best demonstrates the actual process and conception of the exhibition in Ostrava. It arose spontaneously without a radical intellectual framework. A formative jelly that is probably closest to classic spit. It means a random and improbable connection that creates new and often weak and unexplored ties, which inevitably, sooner or later, fall apart. Karel Teige died in 1951. In the same year, the first blocks of flats were built in Poruba in Ostrava.
The exhibition concept has two cycles. The first is a set of collages that work with free association. The other cycle, which pushes the viewer slightly out of context, was a succinct interactive kinetic-acoustic installation with the working title Perpetuum Debile.
The technology of print on canvas is subsequently discredited by gestic handmade blotches. I emphasise the works of the old masters, which I deliberately devalue by means of textural staffage in the form of banal silhouettes. However ambivalent my attitude to the work of Jiří Kolář, his Snídaně v krávě / Breakfast in a Cow is in a way the cornerstone of this trashy work. Since I saw these achievements of Kolář ex post, I couldn’t help but become his follower.
