A project by Jakub Ra & Michaela Mazalova (SPERMONTHECLOTHES).

Opening reception: JULY 7, 7:00-10:00 PM.

SOTCSpermOnTheClothes is a Prague based kind of label established by Jakub Ra and Michaela Mazalová. The main idea leads continuous discourse on topics of current fashion industry, linking with fine art and aesthetics of the body. The life of both authors is blurring the boundaries between art and buying food in a supermarket. SOTC project itself could be described as an intangible human entity that emerged from the common life of the authors. The project solves various topics. Meeting contrasts. Combining concept and intuition. The beginning and the end. The penis and the vagina. Energy which can not be defined. Chaos.

THE PROJECT

In the ANTIDIMENSION we deal with metamorphosis of spiritual and immaterial to the earthly and physical. Exploration of approaches, responses and open forms of: clothing shifted to performance, photography shifted to text etc.… We are in the position of some Medium, which transforms the universal energy into the material of clothes in our current dimension. We live our live at the same level as making art. We do not define the boundaries. Also creating a dialogue between nihilistic own spiritual being and popularly entrenched esoteric tools such as horoscope, divination of cards and numerology. These tools we utilize, but also aware of the instability and mistrust them.The project began in the moment when we laid out five Tarot cards, which defined the way of making this collection. These were the cards that in most cases emphasize the idea binarity, polarity opposite realities, internal and external, a new starting point, development and team spirit. Two muses came into this collection - genderfluid dancer and choreographer Monina and artist David Josef Merta.
