Tomas Vanek
Tomas Vanek creates a new distributive situation, by offering several sentences from his on-going project Particip n?39 each day of the exhibition. All taken from the collected statements of single sentences that we all experience ?? that are most familiar to everybody (please send similar statements to tomas.vanek@cbox.cz). Playing on the nature of the sentences and the gender they adopt through the reader, in their accumulation these sentences construct the work, as they contribute to an exhibition in process.

About the Artist
Tomas Vanek makes specific sound recordings of private spaces, which he describes as sound sculptures. He lives and works in Prague where he studied in the painting studios of Ji?? Sopko and Vladim?r Kokolia at the Academy of Fine Arts from 1990-1997. His most recent work has even taken him to the stage, with his Particip No. 52, Live Score, an interactive music installation and performance made in collaboration with the new-media artist Floex.
