Lukáš Machalický: Eclecticism Hour

Lukáš Machalický’s art is characterized by the purity of form, installation and architecture which seemingly excludes any spontaneity or randomness. Yet, deviations, balancing, ambiguity and systems that fail are a key factor in this artist’s work. It is not necessary to give specific examples of situations, the breadth is substantial – from banality to seriousness. Machalický’s exhibition on the historic principal floor of Colloredo-Mandsfeld Palace is a logical follow-up to his exhibitions In the Park (New Jörg, Vienna, 2018) and Body Immersed in a Fluid (MeetFactory, Prague, 2017). The strictly geometric composition and symmetry of the piano nobile calls for a kind of space mystification. Inevitably, the originally intended perfection is marred by fundamental faults and failures. Indeed, the false appearance, uncertainty or ambivalence is typical of this artist.
