The vision of the history of art, which through progress and a dialectical alternation of styles was meant to lead to the goal of some kind of self-fulfilment (or nirvana), culminated in conceptual art, the boundaries of which led to a conception of art as either an all-embracing reality or conversely an aspiration to erase it completely (which, strictly speaking, is one and the same)… Some suspect that knowledge or the activation of these themes is the most important tool for the capitalisation of artistic production. This necessity to respond to a certain institutional demand may cause whoever perceives this emphasis on themes as trends negatively to experience a state of burnout, rejection or disappearance. In the exhibition Hole Address, using a series of artefacts Adam Vít and Sofie Tobiášová present a humorous commentary of this state of longing for escape. They refer to the performance art of Bas Jan Ader, who disappeared forever during the course of his artistic attempt to sail the Atlantic on a four-metre boat named Ocean Wave.

Adam Vít makes paintings, after many others and certainly before many others. He knows that questions about the meaning of his work can only be answered by action, in this case by image. Each answer is tautologically wrapped in itself, similar to the institutional definition of art. His paintings are contrasting and harmonious. Note the symmetry, repetitions, structures and patterns, abstract motifs, aesthetic relationships, repeated strategies, how the author places the pictorial motifs, sorts the color plans. Focus on the role of randomness, on error, on the author’s casual approach. The paintings do not try to open an imaginary window into a continuous environment, but they are full of views of the final surface of the canvas, of the gesso, they are echoes of some degraded graphic design.
