Adam Hejduk’s portfolio is dominated by a handcrafted scrupulous work with large-format glass panels anchored together with strings. They represent not only independent objects but at the same time also musical instruments. However, in his diploma thesis he made use of glass desks as a projection screen for a three-canal video. The project is designed for CIT Cinema.
In the context of the climate crisis, my generation was already born in the skin of a slow-cooked frog, but it was not until the covid pandemic and the outbreak of the Russian-Ukrainian war that our self-image was fully shattered. The ensuing shock and disillusionment have caused a definitive erosion of our supposedly fundamental values of rationality and humanism, and call for the need to redefine them. In the works of the emerging generation of artists, this reassessment is manifested in particular by a turn towards their countervalues: towards romanticism, spirituality, or the quest for the equal status of all members of the planetary community.
