Flash Art #43, Czech and Slovak Edition 

“Lost Connections”, by Sarah Crown, March – May 2017

Comprehensive article about Kristyna and Marek Milde art practice, written by curator and art historian Sarah Crown focuses on a variety of our projects about the environment such as such as the Gone Wild, In-Tree-Net, Cabinet of Smells and others. Flash Art issue #43 engages themes of #environment and #anthropocene.

The originally printed version in Czech as PDF here. 

English version of the article is available online here.

Flash Art is a leading international art magazine.

 

 

“Like a hike through the mountains, their art practice involves a well thought-out navigation through our environment that offers new perspectives and views on what we humans might have forgotten in our Anthropocene era.”

“While Milde’s work reframes modern lifestyle and everyday rituals it is an “archeological” exploration into cultural memes that is also visionary; imagining a future, where the lost environmental connection could be re-established through awareness and active engagement, fostering integrity of culture and nature.”

 

 


 

Form, Art and the EnvironmentForm, Art and the Environment: Engaging in Sustainability

Published by  Routledge, 2017, 224 pages | 29 Color Illus. | 29 B/W Illus.

New publication on environmental and sustainable art by Barbara Benish and Nathalie Blance, which includes Kristyna and Marek Milde project In-Tree-Net, 2011-2013, a series of site-specific installations engaging architecture and its alienating effects from environment made with tree trunks and branches, mimicking pipes and engineering systems in architecture.

Form, Art and the Environment: Engaging in Sustainability adopts a pluralistic perspective of environmental artistic processes in order to examine the contributions of the arts in promoting sustainable development and culture at a grassroots level and its potential as a catalyst for social change and awareness. This book investigates how community arts, environmental creativity, and the changing role of artists in the Polis contribute to the goal of a sustainable future from a number of interdisciplinary perspectives. From considering the role that artworks play in revealing local environmental problems such as biodiversity, public transportation and energy issues, to examining the way in which artists and artworks enrich our multidimensional understanding of culture and sustainable development.

Exhibition review by Alison Rooney about the exhibition Word at the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, Peekskill, NY featuring Kristyna and Marek Milde installation Home in a Home

“Kristyna and Marek Milde’s installation, Home in a Home, upon closer inspection, will surprise you when its wallpaper is revealed to show highly designed text. A questionnaire, to be filled in by those seated on a couch in the installation, asks visitors to describe what a home means to them, and completes the work.”

Quote about Milde’s project In-Tre-Net: “This wryly humorous work was both profound and satirical, classically Czech-Slovakian in its tongue-in-cheek humor, and referenced both the connection to nature, as well as the antiquated and obsolete infrastructures of housing and plumbing in this part of the world.

“East or West, Home Is Best”

Review of the exhibition „Where is My Home“ at the Dox Center for Contemporary Art in Prague by Lisette Allen, featuring Kristyna and Marek Milde project “Home in a Home “

October 22, 2013

“At first glance, “Home in a Home” by Kristyna and Marek Milde is merely an old-fashioned writing bureau and a chair. However, the desk is not merely an item on display but instead invites visitors to sit down and complete a questionnaire on the non-functional objects in their home, that help to personalize the otherwise blank boxes we inhabit. A selection of the most interesting responses – a rusty nail found in a forest, a collection of meteorites and a dead rosemary plant –are displayed on the wall above the desk.“

“Kristyna and Marek Milde In Loving Memory”

Review by Gail Victoria Braddock Quagliata of the site-specific installation In Loving Memory by Kristyna and Marek Milde at Nurture Art, Brooklyn.

Sep. Iss. 2011

http://brooklynrail.org/2011/09/artseen/kristyna-and-marek-milde-in-loving-memory

Their use of visually loaded cues like memorial plaques and a giant informational panel feels more like winking at the viewer than furiously pointing out his deplorable chair-wasting tendencies, simply because these particular visual cues are so patently absurd.“

“In the hands of Kristyna and Marek Milde, rusty, sun-bleached chairs become as peculiarly heartbreaking and gently humorous as awkwardly-mended one-eyed teddy bears or cracked and carefully glued porcelain dollies.”

Kristyna and Marek Milde In Loving Memory

Review of the installation In Loving Memory by Milde’s as part of Trent’s Top Gallery Pick

October 2011

“The chairs alone are a ramshackle and hideous bunch, but the artists have outfitted each one with a commemorative plaque—much like the plates affixed to park benches in dedication to deceased loved ones—that elevates them to objects of conceptual intrigue…. But it also shows that, by labeling an object as uncool, it suddenly becomes cool. Such is the power of irony.”

“… let us note that as fractionated and different, we all are part of a set. A potentially harmonious whole. 
Perfectly in line with this feeling is permanent installation on the rooftop of the gallery, In Loving Memory, formed by the Czech couple Marek & Kristyna Milde.  A place where the entropy of New York has found a point of arrival, along with a new, but increasingly heterogeneous identity.”

REPAIRED THINGS

In Loving Memory by Anne Percoco

Some scattered thoughts about Kristyna & Marek Milde’s installation on the NURTUREart roof:

August 16, 2011

The installation consists of scavenged chairs, refurbished and sanitized, with commemorative plaques fastened to their backs, plus a map of where they were found, all in various locations in NYC. This project has it all: love of trash a la Slavoj Zizek, material memory, exaltation of humble objects. This relational aesthetics-genre piece not only activates relationships and conversations among gallery visitors who lounge on the chairs. It encompasses the whole web of relationships around their provenance: where the chairs were originally purchased, who bought them, the imagined event of their damage or the slow advance of rust or the going out of style, the decision to discard, and finally their placement on a curb in New York where the artists found them….”. read the rest  as a PDF

Pittsburgh Tribune – Review

”Czech It’ looks at family of photographers“

Review by Kurt Shaw of the exhibition “Czech it” Space Gallery, Pittsburgh, Pa featuring Kristyna Milde photographic series cUMENI.

April.22, 2009

“Also with a focus on humor and feminism, Kristyna Milde’s work, in which she replaces female figures in scenes from famous paintings with Mattel’s Barbie, is a real showstopper. Staged in scenes from paintings of Old Masters like Titian and Peter Paul Rubens, they reflect a transformation of cultural values and role models. For example, with her piece “Diana and Actaeon,” she recreates a painting by Giuseppe Cesari (Italian Mannerist Painter, 1568-1640) in which similarities between stereotypical representations from the past and present collide to make an impact on the stereotypes of female identities, both as victims and savior. Milde is just one of five emerging artists represented in this exhibit whose work represents an interesting peak in the contemporary Czech photographic scene.“

Exhibition Review “Czech it” Space Gallery, Pittsburgh, Pa by Colleen Counihan featuring Kristyna Milde photographic series cUMENI.

April 13, 2009

“Kristina Milde’s work stands out on the walls because her subjects are not human, but rather Barbies. The plastic figures are posed nude, other times clothed, in the scenes of famous paintings. With her work, Milde comments on the shaping of female identity.”

Pitt News is a daily newspaper of the University of Pittsburg since 1910.
