David BÖHM & Jiří FRANTA - Artists in residence, July, 2015

 
Artist duo Jiří Franta and David Böhm give performances, shoot videos, create spatial installations, intervene in public space, paint murals and illustrate books and magazines. Their output is reminiscent of a daily sketchpad, graffiti, caricature, comics, conceptual art, grotesquerie, sports event, collaborative art practice, physical experiment, improvised choreography, and theatre performance. They are interested in process, the time-lapse principle, surmounting obstacles, the intermingling of media, experimentation, obeying and transcending rules, creative dialogue, irony, gravity, infinity. In other words,
 
Jiří Franta and David Böhm do not create drawings, but draw. They have been collaborating since 2006.
