Roman Ondak: Someone walking around. Series of performances and artistic interventions

Roman Ondak, Autonomous Colours, 2018 (Detail)

Under this cryptic title, Belgian artist and curator Erich Weiss presents a cycle of artistic interventions and ephemeral performances that will take place during the spring of 2019. They are seemingly spontaneous actions that cohabit, over some hours or days, with the exhibited artworks.
With a solid professional career in the field of performances, all the artists chosen to be part of the series have accepted the rules of the game: acting as guests at the exhibition dedicated to Antoni Tàpies. As if they were paraphrasing Duchamp’s famous quotation – a guest + a host = a ghost –, the presence of the artists will be similar to a phantom that appears and disappears. Offering the public the possibility of being accidental protagonists in a space dedicated to another edge.

The invited artists are: Jirí Kovanda, Germaine Kruip, Nils Nova, Roman Ondak

Roman Ondak's work is based on a sharp analysis of the small details composing our daily lives: the way we behave, the people and objects surrounding us.
Ondak will show his work Autonomous Colours, 2018, consisting of 17 small copper fragments from the roof, painted with the colours of flags of European independentist territories.
