Artist: Oskar Felber
Title: Ancient Skinwalker
Curator: Nikolas Bernáth
Venue: Berlinskej Model, Prague
I was here before your very ancestors
I’ll be here after your very species
My mongrel soul darker t
Then Timothy Morton’s chocolate
Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Still, I, will survive
In a very single cell of an Archaea
Order my old friend
Wake me up when the collapse ends
I’ll disguise myself again
As an axe which leaves a memory
On people’s skin.
Oskar Felber (1992) is a visual artist based in Prague. In his current works he examines the properties and transitions of various art media and materials as well as the overlaps of paintings and tattoos. Oskar transforms these processes into the form of mutated images (and) objects. Lots of Oskar’s inspiration comes from subcultures, music, occultism, B-horror movies or primitive aesthetics of tattoos.
Nikolas Bernáth (1993) is a co-founder of VUNU Gallery and an independent curator. He focuses on topics concerning cross-connections of high art and pop culture, and other arts.
