Pater Noster Video Stories
Michal Pěchouček

Michal Pechoucek fits neither the label of a video-artist nor that of a film-maker; however, his moving images are among his most remarkable artistic achievements – next to his analogue photography and fabric artworks. Michal is a visual artists who analyses the language of various media through thorough observation of daily routine, from which he extracts his stories of moving images, sometimes slapstick, always funny.

The DVD comprises 12 short films made from 1999 to 2005:
– Magic Skyscraper
– Back to School
– Usual Hostage
– Gentle Mail
– Greetings from Prague
– Guard of Honour
– Collector
– Playtime
– Zrzavy Film
– Pram Room
– Passenger Train
– Pater Noster

Includes an interview with the artist by Martin Mazanec.

Lessons in Art / Lekce v umění

Catalogue published on the occasion of the eponymous solo exhibition by a significant figure on the Czech art scene Michal Pěchouček.

The exhibiton Lessons in Art consists of two rather dissimilar parts situated on two floors of The Stone Bell Gallery. The visitors may feel as if they attended an exhibition of two artists who have nothing in common. This is by no means a deliberate concept; lately, my work have gone in two parallel yet distinct directions, for which there is no reasonable explanation.
