MgA. Petr Kubáč/1995

Petr Kubáč graduated from the Faculty of Art and Design at the University of Applied Sciences in Ústí nad Labem in the Photography studio under the guidance of Lukáš Jasanský and Silvia Milková, where his artistic work began. After graduating from his Bachelor’s degree, he went on to complete his Master’s degree, where he joined the Digital Media studio at the same faculty, this time under the guidance of Michaela Thelenová and Radek Jandera.

Social context plays an important role in my work. I often draw on my personal experiences, which I try to free from the commonplace and classical thinking and representation. It is close to me to react to people in the context of various life situations that we are all surrounded by, and which we usually do not even perceive. In this way I try to draw the viewer’s attention to the importance of the banal in a direct, non-aggressive and very sensitive way. The central theme for me is therefore the human being himself and his perception of the world. The themes I respond to are interpersonal relationships, the transformation of living space, questions of home, human existence, mental disorders, etc.

The focus of my work lies in photography, which has enchanted me with its malleability and dynamism. For me it is not only a raw record, but also a material that can be further worked with. I see great potential in it as a medium of information. I am exploring its significance and limits in the present. I do not work purely as a photographer. I work mainly with technical images, which overlap with many artistic disciplines, such as moving image.

I choose the appropriate medium for expression based on the idea I want to convey. I respectfully use media that appeal to me and that I can use for my message. I look for their limits and possibilities at the present time. My works are accompanied by a certain experimentation, whether with form or the concept itself. I try to create an intimate relationship between the work and the viewer through all sorts of mundane, sometimes banal life situations that we all encounter. Since these situations accompany us on a daily basis, we have learned not to perceive them. So we approach our own life in a kind of anaesthetic way, which is what I am trying to point out with my work.
