curated by Peter Sokol.
Pure For You is an exhibition of objects concerned with the intimate relationships between religion, music, and Pop Culture. Almost one year in the making, distinctive series “Mother & Child” by Slovak artist Viktor Frešo (*1974), combines musical equipment with scenes from Christian iconography. An act that at its root remains provocative in nature and oftentimes repressed in culture.
Viktor Frešo lives and works in Bratislava. He studied in Bratislava at the Academy of Fine Arts and in Prague at the Academy of Fine Arts where he graduated and received his diploma in 2003. Frešo belongs to the most remarkable figures of the contemporary art after the year 2000 in the region of the former Czechoslovakia. His work and overall approach to art is rather untypical but at the same time they reflect the situation in the society and culture.
