    Everything is Nice/ Bon Appétit! | 2016

David Krňanský & Martin Lukáč Everything is Nice / Bon Appétit 09 November 2016 - 12 January 2017 Opening: 09 November 2016, 7 pm Ivan Gallery presents for the first time in Romania a joint project by young artists David Krňanský & Martin Lukáč from Prague, Czech Republic. Born in late ‘80s, they share similar artistic paths, having both graduated from the studio of Jiri Černický and Marek Meduna at the Academy of Art, Architecture and Design in Prague and exhibited together in group shows or inside the group “Black Hole Generation”. Furthermore, working in intertwined studio spaces has put them into contact and information exchange regarding each other’s practice and artistic endeavour. The exhibition features recent works - the artists experimenting mostly with the means of painting and drawing - in a site-specific installation conceived in the context of the relation artist-gallery. Using as a backdrop the markers specific to this relationship, the setting provides a more light approach to this highly complicated and rich in meanings topic, stressing on the mediation function of a contemporary art gallery: “Gallery as an equivalent for a mediator who "serves" paintings. That is what we are making in bigger scale. Paintings served by Ivan Gallery.” (David Krňanský & Martin Lukáč)
