Místnost se zásuvkama

Galerie výtvarného umění v Náchodě, 2011. Installation for sockets, light and sound. Technical support Martin Blažíček.

At the end of gloomy gallery space from the 80´s with permanent exhibition of Russian painting of the 19th century is situated small room with marble floor. It looks like something between mausoleum and office. Many sockets are wired in all the plugs in the circuit walls, in them are wired more and more, so that finally they create messy clump in the middle of the cold grey floor. Some of the sockets sometimes flash and burst. Well-known situation: short-circuit. Does it be? Is it coincidence? Could anything happen?
