The Central Slovak Gallery in Banská Bystrica owns an extensive collection of works of an archival and project nature of the neo-avantgarde artist of the 60’s generation, Stano Filko. The permanent exposure format from this HYDROZOA collection is not traditionally conceived as a closed exposure, it’s variable due to according and changing program.
In galery, it is implemented by invited authors, who critically reconsider Filko’s radical concepts and update his legacy for the present in autonomous art projects.
The program, the aim of which is not commodification but the dissemination of knowledge about Filko’s monumental work was made available to the public by the introductory part in 2017. The fourth part, implemented in the manner of the so-called Bauhutte in authors’ collaboration concept of graphic designer Jan Čumlivský (CZ), artist František Demeter (SK) and architect Jakub Kopec (CZ) is a place-specific spatial installation called SPACE IS THE PLACE.
