Surface, depth, line, points, perspective, proportions… this and that and whatnot.
Ultimately, its about how it feels. Is it fun? Is it comfortable? Is it provoking? Is it boring? Is it sincere? Is it meaningful? Is it absurd? Is it art?
Please accept our invitation to presentation of our artist in residence Michal Mitro from Slovakia. Michal and his son Mateo are jointly preparing a friendly gathering for anyone and everyone who feels like eating fried potatoes with various sauces, drinking kombucha-soda homebrew and getting involved in improvised and spontaneous happening that remains unclear to Mitros themselves.
On top of that you will be presented with fine works of art, of course. Michal will talk about what he’s been up to in AQB and overall in past four months. He might sing and play guitar at times, so please expect awkward situations too.
The event is conceived as a safe, non-judgmental and informal time/space. Queer, kids, families, animals all welcome and respected.
Michal Mitro is an artist and a researcher working across the field of disciplines and media. Trained in Psychology and Sociology, he focuses on the nuances of everyday life as well as hyperobjects of planetary scale. In his artistic practice he translates his sociological imagination into crafted sculptural environments with elements of sound, light or electricity. Themes that he gravitates towards explore relationships between human and more-than-human worlds and the supposed friction between natural and artificial. Mitro proposes narratives both affirming and disturbing in order to shape viable futures one may like to inhabit.
Michal exhibits and presents internationally, mostly in Europe. He is a laureate of this year's Oskar Cepan award, recepient of numerous grants and scholarships, curator at ssesi.space, certified electrician and a father of 5 year old Mateo.
Michal's residency at AQB was supported by International Visegrad Fund and Slovak Arts Council.
