Kdo spí, jakoby jedl | Who Sleeps as He Eats
Retrospektiva a particip č. 222 | Retrospective and Particip. No. 222

prolonged until the end of April

curated by Vít Havránek


How can we equate the diverse artistic work of Tomáš Vaněk and his “particips”, a neologism denoting the artist’s paintings, objects, events, sound pieces, etc., each assigned and entitled with a different number? What is hidden behind this disciplined reductionism? The exhibition at hunt kastner offers a good basis for answering these questions as it is Vaněk’s first  “retrospective”.  While not an absolute exhaustive retrospective, the exhibition does present all of the artist’s Particips numbered from 1 to 221 – 222 artworks in total produced between 1999 and 2021.
