Finalist - 2006

Tomáš Svoboda

Born in 1974

The works by Tomáš Svoboda focus on the exploration of the relationship between the image and text. He develops the starting points of 1960s conceptual art, trying to find out to what degree our visual experience is constituted by common stereotypes. He places his texts in complex relationships with a space specified by him. The jury of Jindřich Chalupecký Award appreciated Tomáš Svoboda’s inconspicuous interventions into the surrounding world which both seek and challenge the rules of everyday life we consider natural and constant. The jury was further intrigued by the sense of humour as well as by the exhausting systematic character of his performances and objects.
