 ארטפורט וארטיס מתארחים בתואר השני לאמנויות בבצלאל

שיח אמן עם דרק פורדג'ור

העבודות של דרק פורדג'ור מתבססות על מגוון מקורות, כולל דימויים ספורטיביים, קלפי משחק ומוטיבים של קרנבל וקרקס כדי לחקור את הפגיעות האנושית. הוא בוחן את ההשלכות הכלכליות, הפוליטיות והפסיכו-סוציאליות של משחקי ספורט על מנת לדון במבנה הכוח שקיים סביב תגמולים וסנקציות, זכאות ועונש, הן לשחקן בתוך המשחק והן כאלגוריה לחוויה האנושית הרחבה יותר. דרך דינמיקת צוות והמתח של היחיד המנסה להיות חלק מהמאמץ קולקטיבי, הוא מתבונן על הסיכונים והתגמולים הטבועים במשחק הספורט, כמו גם בחיים עצמם.

Artport and Artis at MFA Program Bezalel

Artist Talk with Derek Fordjour

Derek Fordjour’s images draw upon a variety of sources, including sporting imagery, board and card games, carnival motifs, and the circus to explore ideas of vulnerability. He uses the economic, political and psychosocial implications of games to discuss the power structure that exists around rewards and sanctions, merit and punishment, for both the player within the game and as an allegory for the broader human experience. Team dynamics that evoke the tension of an individual situated within a collective effort, convey the seductive sense of the risks and rewards that are inherent in the drama of both games and life.

Sunday, April 15th, 6:30pm

Chourouk Hriech is a French artist of Moroccan origins, working primarily with monochrome or black and white two-dimensional drawings, as well as installations, videos and photo-montages. Her drawings create some spaces not by empirical reality, but, though many build upon recognizable elements of actual places. The often surreal nature of these images interacts with notions of mapping, mobility, social fictions and how humans can found some solutions for live into the contemporary world with the ecology, the architecture.
A large number of her drawings is dedicated to the city of Paris and the landscape’s mutation around the constructions of the Tramway.
Hriech’s work has been shown at institutions including: Mamco, Genève, Suisse / MAC VAL, Vitry-sur-Seine, France / 8ème Biennale de Shanghai, Musée de Shanghai, Chine / Kunstnernes hus, Oslo, Norvège / 9eme Biennale de Marrakech, Projets parallèles, Maroc / Musée d’art contemporain Marseille, Musée d'Art Contemporain de Lyon, France / Cìrculo de Bellas Artes, Madrid, Espagne, Musée d’art contemporain et Musée Cantini, Marseille,

Tereza Jindrová (born 1988 in Prague, Czech Republic) is an art critic and curator based in Prague. She is generally interested in methods of creating curatorial ‘frames’ to layer different interactions between artists, artworks and the public. Recently she is focused on the topic of rational and irrational aspects of healing, irrational beliefs and magic, and gender stereotypes in the context of artistic creativity.

Currently, she works as the Curator and Manager of Public Programs for the Jindrich Chalupecky Society. She cooperates with the Educational Department of the National Gallery in Prague, with online platform Artyčok.TV and with the Czech Radio. Since 2014, she has been the co-curator of the Entrance Gallery in Prague and has been a board member of Skutek, a Czech association connecting artists and other cultural producers with a focus on institutional politics and the conditions of artistic production. Her previous experiences include working as the Fine Arts editor at A2 magazine, working for Flash Art magazine Czech and Slovak Edition, the Prague Biennale and Meetfactory – Centre of Contemporary Art in Prague.

She studied History of Art at the Charles University and Theory and History of Design and New Media at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. She was awarded with Věra Jirousová's Award (2013) for art criticism for young authors. In the past two years, she curated/co-curated Healing at Czech Centre Berlin; performance project of Barbora Kleinhamplová at Art in General, New York; Hanky Panky at Fotopub Festival, Novo Mesto; Apparatus for a Utopian Image at EFA Project Space, New York; Monument – A School of Gestures at CCC Gallery, Beijing; and GIRLFRIEND at National Gallery, Prague.


Tomáš Kajánek (lives and works in Prague) primarily employs the media of photography, video and performance. His actions embody current issues to make them a matter of concern. While his early work usually deals with the question of agency – the individual’s capacity to act within rigid social structures, Kajánek recently moved on to possibilities of new technologies that may change recently known infrastructure. In particular, he is focused on an implementation of 3D printing that was named as a new industrial revolution. Application of 3D printing contributed to a collapsing distinction of digital data and physical objects and it also brought urgency in  matters of liberty. Democratization of manufacturing present new scenarios of society that are the basis for his recent work.

Recent selected solo shows include: Liberate Me, Nitrianska galéria, Nitra (SK); The Last Step for the Consecration of the Union between a Man and a Firearm, Croxhapox, Gent (BE); I Don’t See Colour: Series of Retouched Photography, Het Wilde Weten, Rotterdam (NL) Recent selected group shows include: Ripple Effect, Futura Gallery, Prague (CZ); Vienna Biennale, Performing Public Art 2015, AIL, Vienna (AT); OFF2 BIENALLE, National Gallery, Prague (CZ). Kajánek was a resident artist at AIR Antwerpen in Belgium (2017) and at HWW in Rotterdam, the Netherlands (2016).
