Jakub Nepraš / Processes / Layers
“Processes / Layers”, the monographic publication on the artist Jakub Nepras, published by Artphilein Editions, investigates and explains the paths and processes, experienced by the artist in his artistic research, through a series of images of the works, views of the studio as well as some sketches and drawings. The publication includes the critical contribution by Jiří Ptáček, the interview with the artist by Nicola Trezzi and the short essay by Gabor Laczko on the meaning of ‘process’ and the relationship between artist, artwork and viewer.
At the occasion of the launch of the book “Processes / Layers”, Choisi – one at a time inaugurates the new display from the collection of Artphilein Foundation with the videosculpture Processes (2009) by Jakub Nepras, which gave the input to Artphilein Editions to publish a monograph about the artist.
“The work contemplates the frailty of values that change in the course of life. Animation series run in different ways anti-clockwise. (…) At the end all of it gets lost in a dark whirl, where it’s hard to see what happens next. This is an allusion to the crisis we are going through”. (Jakub Nepras)
