Jaroslav Kysa

Jaroslav Kysa was born in 1981 in Czechoslovakia, lives and works in Bratislava, Slovakia. In his works, he trying to reflect contemporary society and confront a viewer with constantly changing presence and our insecure future. Through use of laws of physics and nature in his multimedia works, he contemplates upon humanity and its geopolitical issues. Thanks to magnetism, electrical mechanisms and software, he disrupts the functioning of gravity and perception of time. He brings attention to “short circuits” of reality and its understanding. By corruption of basic human beliefs and knowledge about physical principles, He encourages questioning of general certitudes. He investigates into both conceptual and material essence of works created, which results in the interaction of a viewer with the work. A viewer thus becomes a part of “short circuit” of reality.
