TEMPORARY EXHIBITIONS IN DANUBIANA:
Marek Ormandík - Marek gets in his car or on his bicycle and transports himself to his studio. From Bratislava’s wider downtown to the outskirts of a nearby town where his atelier sits, on the edge of the forest, at the end of a road. This journey is a moment of initiation, a psychological method, a purgation by which Marek rids himself of existential concerns, clears his mind and begins a transformation from a mere mortal into an Artist (Marek Maker). The further he is from home, the more his superpowers seethe inside him. By entering his studio, the transformation is complete. His studio is a black box – in the cybernetic sense of the term. Open: 10:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M. Closed on Mondays. Bratislava-Čunovo, Vodné dielo. More info: www.danubiana.sk.
Vladimír Komárek: Touches of Silence - Czech painter, graphic artist, illustrator and teacher, and a prominent figure of Czech visual art of the 20th century. The compelling nature of his paintings, prints and illustrations won not only interest by also the hearts of many people. The same applies to his storytelling, humour and humanity. Open: 10:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M. Closed on Mondays. Bratislava-Čunovo, Vodné dielo. More info: www.danubiana.sk.
Martina Matlovičová, Vladimír Král: Illustrations - Martina Matlovičová was born on Christmas Eve in 1975 in Bratislava and studied at the Academy of Performing Arts. She has won the following awards: The Most Beautiful Books of Slovakia (2001), the Golden Apple at the BIB 2009 (Bratislava, Tracyho tiger a Drevený tato / Tracy’s Tiger and the Wooden Dad), the Golden Ribbon 2010 (Prague, A pak se to stalo / And Then It happened; Chrochtík a Kvikalka na cestě za blýskavým prasátkem / Chrochtík and Kvikalka on the Road to a Shiny Piglet). Her illustrations are exhibited at home and abroad. Vladimír Král was born in 1974 in Bratislava. From 1994 to 1999 he studied at the Animation Department of the Film and TV Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava. Since then he has worked as an illustrator, stage designer, director of animated TV spots and most recently as a painter. He was involved in creating puppet theater stage designs and spatial solutions at BIBIANA, the International House of Art for Children in Bratislava in the following puppet theater productions: Betlehémske rozprávky (Fairy Tales of Bethlehem, 1998) and Veľký primáš Baro (The Great First Violin, Baro, 2002). Open: 10:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M. Closed on Mondays. Bratislava-Čunovo, Vodné dielo. More info: www.danubiana.sk.
Franz Grabmayr: Paintings - Franz Grabmayr, a key Post-Abstract painter and representative of the European art scene, resisted the influence of fashionable trends in order to pursue his own path. Nature became an inexhaustible source of inspiration for his work; he perceived abstractness in the context of nature. A book, entitled In the Shadow of Nature, most faithfully translates the character of his work and classifies it within the ambit of Abstract Expressionism. Open: 10:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M. Closed on Mondays. Bratislava-Čunovo, Vodné dielo. More info: www.danubiana.sk.
