Everyday
Jnag Min Gim and Jihyeon Kim

Two months since I came, I'm not familiar with Prague yet. The Saloun is familiar, and it's the only place where I can go without Google maps. But even without the map, I'm still not comfortable.
Youngmin Gim

'Everyday' is an expression of the things we've been sensed in our current stance. We expecting to derive general experience from the participants. Not only confined to the specific place but wherever we are - everywhere and everyday.

Score for behaviour in a Russian Shop
Roza Pogosian and Markéta Soukupová

TEREMOK
Get a list with your name on it and go to the shop that is located an Vonochradska 86and called Tepemok and buy the product that is written on the list. Follow the order that is signed as numbers on the list with your names. Go in pairs. Make it in 4 minutes. Record the sound using your mobile phone while you are in the shop (have it in your hand but don't make it obvious that you are recording). After you finished come back to the place where we all are sitting and bring the product that you've bought with you.

228 meters DECORATION
Dávid Brna and Yang Shin Rung

The building we are working with is originally office space for various companies, however when we were comparing the companies that are there and that are supposed to be there we saw a huge difference. Everything being written in a very formal way, which is not that unusual. What bothered us was the very surrealistic inside which gave this building outstanding kind of atmosphere. Our idea was to transfer sound from inside (our studio in this particular case) to outside (blue panel-like decoration) and by that to code it into different environment.

Freedom Colony
Han-jou Hou, Klára Švandová and Karolína Vojáčková

A turn-of-the-century housing area, mostly object to recent speculation and gentrification, with one villa + extended garden in devastated condition. Han-jou Hou and Klára Švandová clear up a segment of the park and invite the visitors to participate in building up useful structures from the availiable material, while initiating a discussion on utopian perspectives on the use of this (exemplary) areal.
Karolína Vojáčková focusses on the question of perspective and the border between the abandoned area and the surrounding urban space. A virtual panoramic image of the zone is layered with associative textual interventions.

0,5 + 0,5 = 1
Marija Čipkute and Martina Nosková

The performance took place in polevku.cz (Krymska 39), soup restaurant. We chose to work with the place where we were going to eat out together on the days when we were working in our studio with collaborative project. It was our habit. Our idea was to construct the unexpected situation in the place which has a very clear daily routine, with not so many changes. We saw the saleswoman having developed the very repetitive movements - the pouring soup into the bowl, giving bread for customers, working with the cash register – only types of soup are what vary the most there. We decided to break this routine, intervening into the semi-public space, changing small detail in the routine that the place would have our personal touch.
We asked the saleswoman to take part in our performance.
On 2017 12 07 we invited a group of artists to go for the ordinary lunch in the soup restaurant. And, when we were there, the saleswoman started to act following our instructions. Every time when someone from our group bought a soup and paid for it, the saleswoman gave him/her only half of the portion of the soup, telling that "If only you finish this, then you can get another half". So everyone from the group had to return to the saleswoman, to get another half of their meal.
Our idea was to bring in some home atmosphere into a semi-public space, to stress the slight border between habit and routine, both for the customer and for the salesperson. Soup itself evoked for us two the memories from childhood about the learning at home for the discipline related to food – that the food has its value, you should always respect it and never throw it away. Also, we wanted this our act to relate to the idea of parents sharing food for their kids at home.
