Josef Daněk, Ken G. Hay, Vojta Horálek:Something about to happen

Interactive text installation, lectures, workshop
6.12.8.1.
Mon 5.12. - 19:00

The participatory wall - billboard is composed during exhibition by open collective of participants: local and remote. The conceptual framework is everything what express and concerns our worries and hopes towards future: What is gonna happen? What we can say about it? Are we able to predict what will be our destiny?

Josef Daněk, Ken G. Hay a Vojta Horálek in collaboration with friends from Moorland Productions and Frozen Academy, visitors and remote collaborators compose the wall covered by our thoughts about future.

Frozen Academy is informal cooperative or network of visual artists and theorists residing in Brno, Prague, Leeds and Larroque. Prof. Kenneth Gordon Hay in Leeds University is one of the nods. Among members are Josef Daněk (aka Spherical skier or the Last Constructor), Aneta Soukupová, and Trina Hyun Byun. Frozen Academy serves a new model for contemporary creative education and is rooted in playfulness of Dada or Fluxus movement. Frozen Academy embrace life, kitch, wit, humor.

Moorland Productions is the non-profit making umbrella term for the collaborative art productions of Kenneth G. Hay and Seetha A . It was formed in 1996 to showcase our work in multimedia, installation, video, photography, painting, print and other areas. This website was formed in 2007 to present a public platform for our collective research and is being constantly updated.
