David Demjanovic & Jarmila Mitrikova

Intervention 23

Museum of Moravian Slovakia

9 August - 27 September 2020


The installation of four contemporary artists (including an artistic duo) from the Czech Republic and Slovakia within the permanent exposition Moravian Slovakia proves the lively bond between young artists and folk culture. The selected works create unexpected conversations between the exhibits presenting the folklore of Moravian Slovakia and the globalized world of today. The artistic duo Jarmila Mitríková and Dávid Demjanovič have been employing folk culture motifs with great intensity and their work is characterized by technical virtuosity as well as an interest in ethnographic research. They interconnect their historical and ethnographic research and also raise the question of the possibility of updating folk tradition
