Jakub Tajovský and team: Synthetic Landscape - Uncool being is melting
Synthetic Landscape is a long-term collaborative project of Jakub Tajovský, Jan Svatoš, Johan Pertl and Ondřej Bělica, a space for collective dialogue of various authorial, natural and media creative subjects cooperating on the image of landscape, which leaves the established dimensions of time and space. Landscape painting for the Pragovka gallery - Uncool being is melting; it connects the individual creative approaches of the authors (painting, sculpture, architecture, glassmaking) and forms the horizon of the landscape in an "extended field". The term borrowed from art theory here means a synthesis of the image of the natural landscape and cultural objects. Just as deterritorialization or entropy brings a new life to abandoned buildings, so natural formations and materials are revived by translation into raw material. The re-synthesis adds a new layer of identity in which the proportions and regularities of the original materials are partially dissolved. This new materiality emphasizes and develops the contrasts of technical and organic principles. Under normal conditions, the synthesized image of the landscape connects incoherent elements such as Icelandic mineral conglomerates, natural architecture, the desolate landscape of coal mines, or concepts of the landscape as beings with their own rights. Reverse geology - sedimentation of natural products in a digital environment establishes a new type of materiality, which we repeatedly try to translate and layer within the image of the synthetic landscape. The combination of technical and poetic interpretations creates synthetic landscape units independent of the body of the observer. The breakdown of spatial orientation by shifting scales, perspective and horizon provokes the observer to seek refuge to establish improvised productive relationships.
