Home Years Dušan Skala
Finalist - 2006

Dušan Skala

Born in 1979

To Dušan Skala, art is a space where one can find things that make no sense in ordinary life. In his opinion, it is the only field of human activities which reflects and describes our world in a “non-scientific” way. He deals with photography and video, creating his own reality in both media in a very subtle way. The people depicted in his photographs enter environments and relationships that are based on everyday life, however, they always elude it in an almost imperceptible way. The jury of Jindřich Chalupecký Award appreciated Dušan Skala’s videos which employ found footage used by the artist to compose fragments of emotionally impressive stories. Moreover, the jury praised his original use of music, evoking feelings of desire and nostalgia in combination with the image.
