Roman Ondak, Lucky Day, 2006 (video stills)

Works from Art Collection Telekom – Contemporary Art from Eastern and South-Eastern Europe
Curated by Nathalie Hoyos and Rainald Schumacher.

Two of Europe's oldest cities, Matera in southern Italy and Plovdiv in Bulgaria, are the European Capitals of Culture this year. From 4th April to 30th June art works from the Art Collection Telekom will be presented at various exhibition venues in Plovdiv.

The exhibition Listen To Us – Artistic Intelligence with 70 works by 38 artists marks a culmination of the cultural events. It wants to point to the common history of the countries and the comparable life experiences of the people in the region and look beyond the national borders.
With its focus on Eastern and Southeastern Europe, just 30 years after the fall of the Iron Curtain, the art works in the exhibition provide many points of departure to reflect the still-difficult period of transition from socialism to democracy.

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

Fundació Antoni Tàpies, 05.04.–30.06.2019

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 [...]

Roman Ondak: Between the lines. Selected works from the r/e collection

espacio artkunstarte, 01.03.–24.05.2019

Roman Ondak: Between the lines. Selected works from the r/e collection

Roman Ondak, Glimpse, 2010

We have been thinking very much about how to create an atmosphere of inclusion in our presentations of art so that the visitors will not only look at art but also interact with it. We really do feel that art is a language just like any other that can be used to communicate almost anything. How can we link the idea of a written or printed system to that of a visual artistic language? That is the question that guided us as we conceived this show. We selected artworks that relate to writing, text, or just the idea of putting thoughts onto a surface like paper. And based on these visual references, we created very simple poems , following three basic rules: 1) the first line should have the word “page/s”, 2) the last line should end with “between the lines”, and 3) the syllabic count for the four lines should be 7/7/7/6.

In spite of the rules, the poems are not rigid or sophisticated. Playful, more than profound. Our intention was to create a game that [...]

Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck, Svenja Deininger, Július Koller, Roman Ondak, Gabriel Sierra, Mladen Stilinović: There will never be a door. You are inside. Works from the Coleção Teixeira de Freitas

Santander Art Gallery, 26.02.–09.06.2019

Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck, Svenja Deininger, Július Koller, Roman Ondak, Gabriel Sierra, Mladen Stilinović: There will never be a door. You are inside. Works from the Coleção Teixeira de Freitas

Július Koller, Šikmé horizontály, 1966

Taking its title from the first verse of the poem Labyrinth by Jorge Luis Borges, this exhibition brings together installations, drawings, sculptures, paintings, videos and books by artists belonging to the international collection of contemporary art of Luiz Augusto Teixeira de Freitas.

In order to reflect the wide variety of meanings that an art collection can achieve, the exhibition is organized as a labyrinth: it has neither a beginning nor an end, no specific theme, it is not centered in any territory, time or belief. And, nevertheless, the options that are posed are endless: dialogues are established, encounters are generated, previous assumptions are deconstructed and innumerable possibilities unfold.

The group show includes works by: Alessandro Balteo-Yazbeck, Svenja Deininger, Július Koller, Roman Ondak, Gabriel Sierra, Mladen Stilinović ⠀

Among the other selected artists are: Cildo Meireles, Dahn Vo, Damian Ortega, Gordon [...]

Roman Ondak: What Are We Made Of? Works from the Art Collection Telekom

Kunsthalle Darmstadt, 26.01.–14.04.2019

Roman Ondak: What Are We Made Of? Works from the Art Collection Telekom

Roman Ondak, Futuropolis, 2006

“What Are We Made Of?: Works from the Art Collection Telekom”, the first exhibition of the year 2019 at the Kunsthalle Darmstadt, features about 35 works by artists from the cultural space of Eastern Europe who are represented in the Art Collection Telekom. The historic change that has been eliminating the factual and ideological gulf between Eastern and Western Europe, between capitalism and communism since the fall of the Iron Curtain in the late 1980s provides the backdrop for narratives and references unfolding in the artworks. They give the opportunity to us to reflect on what supposedly characterizes people in “east” and “west” and on the question: “What are we made of?”

The Art Collection Telekom was launched in 2010. The focus of the collection is on contemporary art from Eastern and Southeastern Europe. In doing so, the Art Collection Telekom would like to address the social and political changes that took place after [...]
