SCOOTER III brings the third year of the Biennial of Young Art – a representative exhibition of upcoming generation of artists up to the age of 35 on both the Czech and Slovak artistic scene who bring special consideration on present world and on contemporary picture (regardless media selection: painting, photography, print, an object, video, etc). The main objective of the organizers is to create a periodical platform for presentation of contemporary artistic language and confrontation of individual approaches. At the same time we want to encourage current creation of the youth and to bring genre correctness during selection of male/female authors.
The subtitle of the exhibition is “an old good GloBalkans” referring to the clash and overlapping of globalization processes (media mass culture, advertisement, branding, illusions of future) and balkanization (disintegration, hybridism, bastardization chaos, problem minorities, disillusionment) in our space and their penetration into the intimacy of home and life of an individual (living areas, architecture, TV-culture of the living room, everyday situations). The event is held in two exhibition rooms of the Ján Koniarek Gallery in Trnava- in the Koppel villa ( the first floor) and a klUb3 ( the ground floor).
Within the Biennial the organizers will award their own CYPRIAN award for a selected male/female author (according to a famous painter and a native Cyprián Majerník) together with a financial prize (€1 500). In 2007 Paula Sceranková was the prize laureate and in 2009 the prize was given to Tomáš Džadoň whose project realized together with T.D. Monogramist in an entrance area of the Gallery aptly comments on the main topic of the Biennial.
Within the Billboart Gallery project the work of Patrik Ševčík (1974): Consciousness, 2011 (from the cycle “Silence is Golden…”) will also be presented.
The event is supported by the Ministry of Culture of the SR, the Slovak Broadcasting Company, Flash Art, Atelier, Pravda, MTT, MY-the Trnava Newspaper, the Trnavský Hlas.
