Petr Kubáč/1995

Petr Kubáč’s current work is characterized by photographic experiments and deconstruction of images within spatial installations. In his projects, he deals with the topic of the pliability of human perception.

He searches for the meaning of photography and its boundaries. Thanks to new technologies, the Internet, and social networks, photography has become so ubiquitous that we become immune to it, overlooking it. Petr draws attention to these tendencies by decomposing photography into light reflections.

A typical feature of Peter’s work is joining of the human experience and work with his personal testimony. He describes the personal feelings of his life, examines the decision-making process, life choices, or (very intimately) examines the unpredictability of anxiety. Petr Kubáč is a student of Photography Studio led by Lukáš Jasanský and Silvia Milková at the Faculty of Arts and Design, UJEP in Ústí nad Labem.
