PROTO GALLERY SYSTEMS

PROTO GALLERY SYSTEMS is developing primal models of exhibitional framework, models that are not dependent on institutional processes and establishment that could limit the free expression and creative potential of contemporary artists. Proto gallery systems functions as a nomadic tool for presenting exhibitions in off-gallery structures and public spaces, deconstructing the stereotypes surrounding the areas of corporate dynamics and distribution of information.

BODY MENTAL HEALTH SELF-DESIGN SELF-REDESIGN ergonomic

(TESTER skin HUMAN PACKAGE)

KORPSEPUNX

Aesthetics and functionality --- RELAX

The body is transformed under the weight of social preferences, or the psyche of an individual by physical injury. Stretching the human body to the clamp and subsequent averaging in a relaxation chair.

Connection of aesthetics / functionality of objects with their austere material nature and references to social and social issues.

Theory over the development of the human body, mental health and maintaining one’s own integrity under the onslaught of various influences.

The installation consists of several objects in which signs of ergonomic design, distress and effort for communication appear.

New evolving novel-like exhibition series by PGS, where an art exhibition is a crime scene in the sense that in a gallery, we spy with our little eye and try to discern texture from an object, divine the artist’s criminal motive, understand the setting and its dimensions in its complexity, to necessarily realise that there are clues that our crude senses simply don’t register. In this instance, we are invited to a routine inspection alongside the Clueless Agency and meet a private eye, who by his very nature exists only as a grey smudge with a coat for a contour. More than a human being, it seems, he is a tool to be used. PGS Collective – his literary author – understands this archetypal detective persona as a vessel – as fluid but also filled with fluid. As the story progresses, different amalgamations and venues will spawn different enemies and traces, as they repeatedly fill in the vessel with prompts and cultural concepts, so that we eventually collect their sediment and retroactively divine its history.

“Detectives are famously perceptive. […] ‘It’s a matter of kind of knowledge which tend to be unspoken, whose rules […] do not easily lend themselves to being formally articulated or even spoken aloud. […] With this kind of knowledge, there are factors in play which cannot be measured– a whiff, a glance, an intuition.’ This is not the inside knowledge of an elite but a kind of „low intuition, “ a universal openness to movement, difference, sensation.” – Sadie Plant, Magicians, Writing on drugs

Friends are coming along and your place is way too far to be ready. Sitting on a comfy sofa, thinking, that this evening will be disastrous, how to overcome, avoid it? Bruh! Life is getting serious and there’s less and less moments of our own, did common sense get so far, that it is not possible to act for ourselves? No way. We can’t let that happen. Let’s do something about it, something out of our framework, something big, let’s cheer this house a bit!

Wearing gloves means ready to act. Ready to take on a role. Cop or rob. Or Rob o’cop. So let’s try them on. And see what what. Coz gloves are those that protects my flow. Gloves makes wearer to feel like home, like there’s no responsibility. You know? On the other hand, gloves themselves can leave prints that are just as unique as human fingerprints. And yet it’s all about those fingerprints we are ready to leave here for some time. Right? Need a hand? Of course not, all of us can act on our own!

In outdoor parking lots, GPS signal can be used to remember the location of a vehicle (some apps save location automatically when the car is turned off). In indoor parking lots, one option is to record one’s Wi-Fi signature (signal strengths observed for several detectable access points) to remember the location of a vehicle. In these spots intellectual commodity can be installed, to also feed the hunger for the other new products, that the mother-object (shopping center) is offering.
