Vaclav Pozarek often draws logos for his exhibitions.


Similar to that for a company or a product, his 2012 exhibition in the Bündner Kunstmuseum in Chur was titled LOS (Library of Sculpture) and the show in Francesca Pia Gallery in Zurich he named WOT (Wieder ohne Titel / Again without Title). 
For his first solo exhibition at Barbara Wien in Berlin, he chose HOH (Hund ohne Hose / Dog without Trousers). When asked about the meaning behind the almost Dadaistic-sounding logo, Pozarek said, “Somehow it seems appropriate for Berlin.” 

Since May 2017 Pozarek lives in Bern, has his studio in Thun and works in a guest studio in Sitterwerk in St. Gallen. The latter is where he draws and builds the sculptures for the HOH exhibition. All are new works, which will be brought together in Berlin to form an ensemble. Concerning his objects, Pozarek often allows chance findings to guide him. He uses scraps of wood, boxes, hinges and doors, keeping a close eye on what position each object will assume later in the space. There are sculptures for corner situations, box constellations, doors and picket fences, which in contrast to their former function, stand in the corner of the room and contain nothing, do not close and do not delineate. They are similar to everyday objects which are autonomous and functionless. They use nothing, they serve no purpose – not even an ideological or thematic function. They are constructions, obstacles and absurd vehicles for the minds of the beholders
