A solo show by Roman Ondak
From June 8 to July 22, 2006
Roman Ondak’s work, which might take the form of an installation, performance or an intervention scarcely distinguishable from the context in which it is presented, often provokes a double-take in the viewer, making them question their perception or awareness of social codes.
Using a real fact, a place, a trip or an experience as a starting point, Roman Ondak informally presents a fiction of his own making, full of repetitions ; he sets the scene and the subject, and different filters skew the infinite replay of each story. Memory holds a critical place in his work since it implies experience, the past and its meaning, but also because it opens the way for imagination and unconscious.
All his work occurs at both the material and psychological edges of our perception and the exhibition becomes the receptacle of human experiences, a place questionning the representation and the interpretation, the reality and its re-enactement.
Roman Ondak was born in 1966. He lives and works in Bratislava (Slovakia).
