Question of superficial affection (extended) has developed from a similarly titled video piece of Moravec’s from 2012. The work focuses on the  physical change of a material exposed to the effects of implosion. An object collapses inwards without visible cause and thus we witness the “natural” transformation of inanimate matter. A prefabricated metal container changes from a cubic shape into something both more organic and expressive. This natural phenomenon could be perceived as “associative physics” and accentuates questions of ostensible stability, repetitive failure, and progressive change over time.
Tomáš Moravec (*1985 in Prague, Czech Republic) gained his Master in Arts (MgA.) at the Intermedia Department of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, Czech Republic, 2012. His works can be described as „spatial situations“, mostly realized by means of object, video and installation. Interventional gestures, altered dispositions of surroundings, deflecting the viewers perspective, temporary objects and subtle installations mark the most significant points of his output. The production of „change“, perceived both as a natural quality and as a striving need, conceptually underlies his previous work.
