Black Hole Generation (B.H.G.) is the name for the artists’ trio created by students of the Academy of Applied Arts in Prague, who stubbornly keep producing large volume abstract paintings.


David Krnansky, Martin Lukac, and Julius Reichel are so far the only ones who represent the phenomenon of the painting come-back; being inspired by Basquiat heroin-ish dreams and gradient, post-internet textures.

B.H.G. has prepared an exhibition that is geared around the nineteenth century ‘academic salon’ and the old-school categories such as: ‘good painting’. Their aim was to put the viewers’ attention to the postmodern ‘eye wink’ this time, however, understood in too straightforward a way. Abstract art is going to dominate the gallery space and lead us to unknown and unpredicted meanings hidden by the non-figurative paintings.   

Czech and Slovak artists make an attempt to bring back to life the myth of originality, showing post-formalistic and post-plasticistic images. The infamous term of zombie formalism is going to vanish to give room for previously unknown nuances of freshness.

B.H.G. - artists’ trio, final year students in Jiří Černický and Marek Meduna studio at UMPRUM (Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague). Their works are most often site-specific installations with ready-mades combined with paintings and drawings.
