Curator: Roman Popelár
Opening: 09.04. 2015 (Thursday), 18:00

This is the author´s second solo exhibition but it is his first extensive work presentation since graduation from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in 2011. On the one hand, Miro Trubač (born in 1986 in Trnava) is a local – regional artist, on the other hand, the nature of his sculptural work goes well beyond the region. In his work, we can see paradoxes, irony and sometimes even sarcastic humor. His topics originate from local environment, vicinity, but also from the collective past or present. And that relates to all of us. In his artistic creation he likes playing with meanings and interpretations. Even the title „Home Made“ speaks of the young artist´s position in the Slovak society: do it yourself, at home, at your expense... As a part of his irony he also used the acronym of "JRD" (which stands for the „Slovak Jednotné roľnícke družstvo“ – Co-operative farm ), now almost forgotten name for state organizations used a long time ago, in times when the author was born, for regional agricultural centers functioning (among other things) on the basis of mutual cooperation of members or their mutual interdependence at work.

For the Synagogue – Center of Contemporary Art of the Ján Koniarek Gallery in Trnava the author prepared a completely new, so far not presented collection of figural compositions he has been working on the last two years. His mostly chamber creation is based on social paradox; dynamics of his figural compositions is „frozen“ in time. The story is supported by a strong coloration of themes with self-sustaining features: gestures, grimaces, composition layout and overall expression. The figural cycle will be displayed in the lower part of the premises. On the Synagogue´s first floor the author will present a selection of his sculptural concepts in the form of photographs, a short video or computer animation to complete the picture of the author´s thinking, of his approach to creation.

Project J.R.D. (Home Made) summarily tells about one of the artists of the Trnava youngest generation of artists. His exhibition symbolically closes another chapter of modern history of the Synagogue as a center of contemporary art. After the exhibition the premises shall undergo a comprehensive refurbishment and will be closed for a longer period of time.
