Lukáš Hofmann (b. 1993, Prague) lives and works in Prague. Works of note include Phantom Limb performance at Danish National Gallery (Copenhagen, DK), Enzyme at Galerie Frangulyan (Paris, FR), Dry Me a River at a 5000 sqm cleared out Bauhaus hobby market for Plato (Ostrava, CZ), Retrospective performance at the National Gallery (Prague, CZ), classic arrangement of four white roses in collaboration with Dan Bodan at the Schinkel Pavillion (Berlin, DE), big bag with Barbara Klawitter and Nico Arauner at Moderna Museet (Stockholm, SE), IKEA Made Fashion, hosted at Galerie AVU (Prague, CZ), and l’eau des algues with Nils Lange at Cabaret Voltaire, for the closing of Manifesta 11 (Zurich, CH). Each shows a different side to Hofmann’s focus on ritualised play, open collaboration, and the styling of a vigorous resistance to today’s sensory autopilotism.
Lukáš Hofmann (b. 1993, Prague) will be artist-in-residence at Jupiter Woods, London in July 2018 in collaboration with Futura Centre for Contemporary Art.
During his residency, Lukáš will undertake research to further expand on his performance practice, as well as develop an investigation that has informed his recent curatorial direction undertaken at Futura Projects, Prague, with the group exhibition ‘A Guiding Dog for a Blind Dog’. He will continue in the preparation of an artist book/catalogue to accompany this past project. This unfolding ecclectic research glimpses at the seeming axioms of reality by examining and recognising the soft and often-times cracked textures on the surface, allowing to observe the blurry depths of existence deeper down.
The residency will be punctuated by events organised in collaboration with Jupiter Woods, please check the website for upcoming dates.
The residency is kindly supported by The Czech Centre and Jupiter Woods for Contemporary Art.
