Rhythms of restlessness
Hudecová, Stanislava ; Kadlčák, Šimon (referee) ; Mikyta, Svätopluk (advisor)
In my bachelor thesis Rhythms of restlessness I adress, through personal associations and memories, the themes of work ethics and the capitalist-oriented culture of today's society. In an installation made up of a series of objects and drawings embedded within them, I materialize my intimate attitudes or feelings by combining moments from memories with moments from everyday routine activities that are an overlooked part of our everyday "autopilot" functioning. The office chair here acts as a memory, metaphor or symbol of working, and its various manipulations across the installation carry references to my associations associated with this phenomenon. Through this work, I explore the relationships of my immediate surroundings to what it means to function in today's success-oriented rather than happiness-oriented time, and it also serves as a way for me personally to become aware of my own place in the context of my artistic practice. The work builds on my previous projects, in which I have often explored themes of my own intimacy and psychology in the context of functioning in today's world. It is closely related to my most recent work entitled Bedroom Routines, which metaphorically worked through domestic routines and moments, following a stylized character who is my "avatar" in the work.
Wonder&Wander
Porubský, Aleš ; Zapletal,, Aleš (referee) ; Mikyta, Svätopluk (advisor)
In the Bachelor's thesis entitled Wonder&Wander I loosely follow up on my previous work, in which I work with the themes of alterego, escapism, self-mythologization and . The work deals with an imaginative world in which I work with characters who are heroes and guides at the same time. Wonder&Wander follows heroes and guides in various situations, environments and moods, which are a reflection of my reality and personal experiences. The paintings of this cycle are thematically about fleetingness, melancholy, abandonment, searching, wandering, feeling the world and inner changes. An important theme of this series is the motif of the journey, which has multiple meanings for me: the journey as a solution to problems, the journey as a search, the journey as a preparation, the journey as an environment for changes... The work Wonder&Wander is divided into two parts in order to create a certain duality of reading of the themes, which are present in the motifs of the images. In the first part, I focused on the landscape and the motif of the journey as such, while in the second part, which consists of portraits, I try to amplify the sense of urgency of the mentioned themes.
Morphology of my bacteria III.
Procházková, Kateřina ; Mitro, Michal (referee) ; Mikyta, Svätopluk (advisor)
In my bachelor thesis titled "Morphology of my bacteria III.", I focus on a series of objects and prints depicting a parasite defined by me. Using the technique of screen printing, I portray the subject as a symbol of personal encounters with health difficulties. This results in an infinite number of growing parasites, bacteriological or virological motifs, and morphological shapes. Screen printing is primarily utilized in the work for its ability to multiply and layer, each time with a different outcome.
The Quiet Omnipresence
Bodlák, Ondřej ; Dvořák, Vojtěch (referee) ; Mikyta, Svätopluk (advisor)
The work, entitled The Quiet Omnipresence, themes the metaphor of grid and line as representing the source elements necessary for the growth of whole forms. It relies on a study of landscape and urban scenery, its quiet ubiquitous mechanisms and processes. The jumble of lines creates a sensorially elusive monochromatic surface that the observer can encounter when looking at organic structures for longer periods, as well as industrially tuned urban compositions. It explores the relationship of order and chaos in its opposite but paradoxically mutually inexorable connotations. The work mostly relies on a specific and not uncommon type of space often right in the middle of cities – vague terrains, places forgotten and deliberately overlooked, in which banal biological processes slowly take the helm determining the direction of a seemingly random development.
Street Gore Food
Ponomarevová, Daniela ; Zálešák, Jan (referee) ; Mikyta, Svätopluk (advisor)
The thesis Street Gore Food thematizes the banal motif of the excavation inside a common local road, represented by a sidewalk, and themes of fast food culture. The project is set within a conceptual and visual framework inspired by fairground attractions such as the Haunted House or Ghost Train, the trashy premises of B-movie and C-movie horror films. The work thus combines the scary and absurd elements of genre structures, grotesque entertainment and the cheap commercialism of popular culture. Its main subject is the implicit mediation of a street scene: a pedestrian walks on the stone surface of a road while eating a baguette he bought at a fast food kiosk. During his routine walk, when he is bound to mindlessly consume his lunch, he is stopped by a fall into a strange trench. This takes the form of a grotesque digestive system made from the likeness of kitchen equipment used to grind up food, or a bizarre menu having the character of a tasty menu from popular fast food chains. Street Gore Food is thus a stylized 3D model section of a sidewalk created using recycled-found cardboard material and drawing techniques.
Mental alchemy
Nováková, Bára ; Vaňous,, Petr (referee) ; Mikyta, Svätopluk (advisor)
The thesis consists of several approaches to the process of visual image creation itself. The approaches vary based on four different experiences, with lived reality. Each of the four stages has its own rules for approaching the image. Each approach includes a different treatment of formats and techniques. Overall, the thesis includes the following media: oil painting on canvas, pencil, crayon, charcoal and pastel drawing on paper, and printmaking (drypoint) on paper. The formats range from approximately 15 × 21 cm to 250 × 200 cm. The main aim of the thesis is to show the different approaches and energies that lead to different starting points for the creation of a visual image. The thesis is therefore a personal search and a detective investigation into what the ideal image should be. What form should the image take? What energy should be brought into the image? What exactly are we mirroring in the image?
Life
Maliňáková, Kamila ; Zálešák, Jan (referee) ; Mikyta, Svätopluk (advisor)
My bachelor´s thesis is called Life. My original intention was to paint a monumental, perfect picture, triptych of good, evil and something in between. Something like an altar of 2014 according to the model of the old masters. But at the beginning of my work there were a lot of doubts about my painting. It became more and more fabricated, which was confirmed by my teachers too. And therefore I decided to reassess my work and I found out, that more interesting than original painting is a backstage of my painting, the things, that hapeend around. And this is now a topic of my bachelor´s thesis - Backstage of my painting.
The Stone
Merta, Johana ; Zálešák, Jan (referee) ; Mikyta, Svätopluk (advisor)
Studio as a specific way to demonstrate my work.
Insight
Valentová, Aneta ; Chalánková, Vendula (referee) ; Mikyta, Svätopluk (advisor)
This diploma thesis Insight brings philosophical reflection on photographic media in the form of installation with video-projection in space. Issues over problems of photographic media (locked doubles, stopped time, framed imprint of reality, real raw depiction) are opening by using story about creation of picture of a rabbit on the moon in the style of open metaphors in a white room. Through this myth photographic medium gets the concrete form - in the form of symbolic environment with objets and signs. The whole work is free personification of photograph in whose inside the audience may find themselves.
I don’t care – Work is work!
Ferenc, Jiří ; Artamonov, Vasil (referee) ; Mikyta, Svätopluk (advisor)
Themes of my work are mass production and its error rate. The main target of my criticism is however the standard of goods, which separates aproved and disaproved ware. Beside criticism of standard I am also try to point out the power of uniformity of goods. In my opinion the uniformity of mass production can develop xenofobia and racism.
