The exhibition Sands of microworld 2.0 works with the now rather “overcooked” topic of global environmental crisis as a phenomenon that has returned to the art scene after 2000 in a new context of scientifically oriented multi-disciplinary paradigm of the Anthropocene. It presents a site-specific installation that refers to the crisis situation. It resembles an emergency committee or a bunker, a place in charge of the last coordinated human activity.


The audience enters the intervention in Galerie TIC in a state of timelessness, the time “after” or “post” when all the preceding tension and threat has disappeared. What is left are only ruins, fragments, and memories... The intricate environment is crowned by a large format video – a narrative 3D animation with a distinct musical component by the invited artist Tomáš Moravanský.


The animation is a “postmodern” collage full of references to pop culture and techno-optimism. It satirizes the acquired and eventually destroyed human cultural property, which is paradoxically portrayed in a dematerialized form in a world of virtual objects and simulations that are multiplying and overlapping into infinity.


The project was created in cooperation of Michal Žilinský, Tomáš Moravanský, Jakub Roček, Jakub Nemec, Petr Jambor.
