PROJECT GALERIE2 /Czech Republic/

Kateřina Fojtíková

As part of Intersections, Galerie2 presents ten exhibition projects by artists or artistic duos from the contemporary visual art scene. Its concept is based on compressing gallery activities into a fixed period of 10 days. Conceived inside as a traditional gallery venue, Galerie2 is taken out of its context and placed within the public space. In terms of form, it derives from segments used for the construction of the Intersections facility. Exhibiting artists will have the venue at their disposal for a period of twenty-four hours each. They may use the venue as a traditional gallery, or instead approach it as an object which can be transformed in various ways. At the same time, each artist will be forced to respond to the non-reversible changes caused by his or her predecessors. Galerie2 could thus be called a recycling gallery, where each opening is at the same time the closing of an exhibition, and where one project is absorbed by the next. The openings of exhibition projects will be held every day between 6 and 8 pm. The gallery will be open to the public even as the artists work on their installation, and the entire project will be presented on-line on the PQ website.
