Abstract

The spatial installation Manuport, prepared for a group exhibition Unplugged at Gallery Rudolfinum in Prague, consists of four fragments – material residues found in a specific location of Prague’s Holešovice district. Main elements of the installation are physical objects that were moved from places of their original occurrence. Shortly afterwards, sites of their origin underwent a complete transformation as a result of development construction activities. The title refers to an anthropological term Manuport – in its exact meaning a natural object, displaced from its original location by human activity, while the transport is initiated on the basis of the aesthetic relationship to the object, that has not been further modified.
