Radovan Čerevka: Beasty Models

>visual arts

 
Opening: 20th of May (FRI), 7pm


Trafó Galéria is hosting the first Hungarian solo show of one of the most non-conform artist of the Slovakian young art scene, Radovan Čerevka (1980). Čerevka’s career is entangled with his hometown Košice, where he is teaching now, and where he founded the artist collective Kassa Boys in 2006 with Peter Vrábel’ and Tomáś Makara. Their activity has usually been surrounded by scandals which is due to the fact that they work with the taboos of the Slovakian politics, using overidentification as part of their critical methodology.
 
Čerevka’s individual work received appreciation through the trendsetter Slovak Oskar Čepan Award in 2013. Since Čerevka already exhibited in the Studio Gallery and in Chimera-Project, as well as in the Private Nationalism exhibition, his recent works are not uknown for the Hungarian audience, he also participated in the residency program of ISCP New York and Lepizig, where he had shown his work in Halle 14.
 
Čerevka’s solo exhibition is dealing with the images of islamophobia and it also gives an overlook of the artist’s recent installation practice in which the language of games merges with that of different media.
