310510: CharimGalerie curated by_Valie Export: Mrs Roberts is Gonna Be Late

CharimGalerie curated by_Valie Export: Mrs Roberts is Gonna Be Late 06.05.10 – 05.06.10 Lump in one’s throat At first everything seems peaceful and normal and even a bit boring on the airplane. From the window one can see clouds and the airplane’s wings. What each individual passenger does is succinctly noted on the photo: “15A sleeps” or “17D reads”. It all seems like a nice idea, and only after a while does the awful story unfold and it becomes clear that this is the narration of an airplane crash; testimonies of tenderness (“18B strokes 18C”) turn out to be farewells for good. The video “Fly” by Tomás Svoboda leaves a lump in one’s throat as does his installation “Home video Phuket, Thailand, December 2004” – the staged beach idyll shows the moment before the Tsunami strikes and kills hundreds of thousands of people. Svoboda’s works should, as the accompanying text of the exhibition “Mrs. Roberts is Gonna Be Late” claims, aim at translating “our film-like perception; the vision mediated by film and which has become our habitual form of perception”. But this does not really apply to Svoboda’s works – his work is based on images transported through the media and TV - and that constitutes a significant difference. In contrast, the works displayed by Daniel Pitín’s deal with film: his bleak paintings refer to famous film scenes. The video “Dinner with Malevich”, which was especially created for this exhibition, shows Malevich’s famous black square copied into a Czech film from the sixties. A sequence of enigmatic scenes develops in which this icon of Modernism is constantly repositioned in a bourgeois living room. “Mrs. Robinson is Gonna Be Late” is part of the “curated by”-series, in which 20 galleries invited artists to curate an exhibition. Valie Export selected these two participants - of which one has a foible for old films and the other for mass media – but what these two artists have in common remains a mystery.
