leaving to prague tomorrow & let’s say that timing could hardly be better! to start with: on display in galerie rudolfinum is “decadence now! visions of excess“, curated by otto m. urban, presenting pieces with the concept of decadence in current art. the show is themed into 5 main groups, namely: excess of the body/mind/self/beauty & life. artists include nobuyoshi araki, marc bijl, wim delvoye, jake and dinos chapman, jeff koons, matthew barney etc etc…
sounds thrilling? you bet & we haven’t even mentioned the warning on the rudolfinum site, namely: “some pieces in this exhibition could be shocking. galerie rudolfinum recommends that highly sensitive persons and guidance of the children of up to 15 years of age think seriously about visiting this exhibition!”
:-P
