May Program

16 Mar - 30 May | Tue - Sun | 13.00 - 19.00 | Nová synagóga

Exhibition

Mary Duras and Vladimír Havrilla open the Sphere 
Guest: Line Gate

Curators Ivo Habán and Juraj Gábor introduced and opened the exhibition in March with an online interview. In the second half of April we were open only to Startlab donors who "bought" the opportunity to enter Sphéra first. But since May 4 we have been open for everyone and we are extending the first exhibition until the end of May, so that you can see and, above all, experience it. Live!

Curated guided tours on 5/11, 5/18 and 5/30, always at 6pm.

Admission: 5 euros

 

2 Apr - 30 May | 17.00 | Nová synagóga

Public art installation

Dagmar Šubrtová: Rekultivácia / Reclamation

 

The temporary installation is still there. A counterpoint to Juraj Gábor’s wooden Sphéra, this installation by Dagmar Šubrtová consists of an array of metal silhouettes of dried trees. It is an eloquent symbol of the country's growing devastation and long-term ill-treatment of large natural territories.  The trees are placed right outside Nova Synagoga. 

Admission: Donation-based (5 euros)

 

1 May - 30 June | Mon-Fri: 10.00 - 21.00, Sat-Sun: 12.00 - 21.00 | Stanica

Exhibition of photographs

Døkument 20 2.1


A smaller selection - a site-specific installation of photographs in different parts of Stanica’s interior - from the Døkument 2020 exhibition, which was closed for most of its duration at the Miloš Alexander Bazovský Gallery in Trenčín at the turn of 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic. In agreement with the curators Ján Viazanička, Veronika Marek Markovičová and Michaela Pašteková, we reinstalled it in the non-ceremony environment of our cultural-railway station. It is accessible according to the current pandemic measures as well as the whole Stanica.

Admission: Donation-based (5 euros)

6 - 27 May | Nová synagóga

Residency

Slavomíra Ondrušová stays in the Sphere

An almost two-month long artistic residency, this will be the starting point for the artist's applied sense of a concentrated experiencing and recording of the essence of the environment in her surroundings. Slavomíra is a master of the linear trace, drawn daily in her own sketch  "notebooks". In May, she will be meandering through all the various nooks and crannies of the Sphere to find places that are not easy to get to.

Admission: Not for the public  

 

19 May | Wed | 20.00 | Stanica

Concert

Balázs Pándi & Petr Vrba


A pair of extraordinary musicians and experimenters came together to collaborate for a group concert at the well-known Opus club in Budapest. They decided then to explore their sonic universes in more detail in a duo that will visit us.

Admission: 5 euros

 

21 May | Fri | 17.00 | Stanica

Workshop

Drawing session in the streets of Žilina


This time we will move out of the online space and away from the tables and into the streets of the city, where a different dynamic of perception and observation is at work, a different eye-hand-pencil relationship. Through drawing and observation exercises we will explore how these dynamics, relationships and our perception work and how the environment influences our drawing. Lecturer: s.ondrusova@gmail.com

Admission: 15 euros

 

24 May - 10 Jun | Nová synagóga

Residency

Tomáš Janypka in the Sphere


Throughout the year of 2021, dancer, performer and choreographer Tomáš Janypka repeatedly enters into dialogue with the Sphere. In May, he has seven days to find his place in the exhibition ‘The Opening of the Sphere’, accompanied by the statues of Adam and Eve. During his performative inhabiting of the space, he will inevitably experience the transformation of one exhibition into another. In the upcoming one, he will react to the presence of the artists Slavomíra Ondrušová and Martin Hreha.

Admission: Not for the public  

 

25 May | Tue | 18.00 | Nová synagóga

Discussion

On the responsibility of the artist and the art to "thicken" the atmosphere


A discussion on the themes generated by the placement of the work Reclamation in front of the entrance of Nová synagóga. Guests present -Dagmar Šubrtová, Robo Švarc and Juraj Gábor - and moderator Martin Hodoň will ask about the role of the artist and his artistic gestures in local landscape changes and global environmental problems. We will try to raise the notion of moral integrity and the artist's responsibility towards the environment of which he is an integral part and to which he is more or less sensitive by the nature of his work.

Admission: 5 euros

 

28 May | Fri | 19.00 | Stanica
