Radek Brousil, Standing, Holding a Waterlily (installation view), 2019, NoD Gallery Prague
Using primarily textiles, ceramics, film, photography, video and painting, Radek Brousil creates installations that address social testimony and present an activist stance on the future’s unpredictability. With his past interest on post-colonial tendencies in the contemporary artistic discourse, Brousil examines these issues on a symbolic, individual, and emotional level. He characterizes social, cultural, and environmental problems using novel interpretations and terminology.
Radek Brousil’s past exhibitions include There Was a Choir There at KOMPLOT, Brussels (2023) and Glassyard Gallery, Budapest (2020-2021); When the time swirls, when it turns into a black hole at Futura, Prague (2020); Cool Water at Trade Fair Palace, Prague (2018). He has exhibited at other venues including The National Gallery Prague, ParisianLaundry, Montreal, among others. His work is included in local and international private and institutional collections.
Previously Brousil has participated in artist residencies such as ISCP (New York), Komplot (Brussels), Delfina Foundation (London), Darling Foundry (Montreal) and Youkobo Art Space (Tokyo). He is the 2015 winner of the Oscar Čepan Award for Young Visual Artists.
Radek Brousil’s residency is made possible through AAI’s ongoing partnership with Residency Unlimited and with support from The Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic, The European Union and Czech Recovery Plan.
