    • Adam Stanko a Helena Sequens - Shaving Of The Apes

      Adam Stanko a Helena Sequens - Shaving Of The Apes

      Umělecká sochařská dvojice Adam Stanko a Helena Sequens, absolventi pražské Umprum (ateliér Kurta Gebauera) vytváří instalace, objekty a videa, které pomocí cynického a sarkastického humoru poukazují na současnou pokleslou politickou, společenskou, náboženskou a morální situaci. Expozice Shaving Of The Apes (Holení opic) je mnohovrstevnatým ponorem do temných zákoutí vědomí jedince i společnosti. Se sarkasmem sobě vlastním analyzují skrze sérii symbolů problémy dnešního světa. Ekologická havárie, kognitivní disonace, pokřivení tváře, problém udržitelnosti bytí a útěk na pláže Karibiku. Výběr z prací je částečně retrospektivní. Na výstavě autoři představí díla, která vznikala v průběhu několika let. Ačkoliv již byly některé práce prezentovány, nikdy nebyly uvedeny pro veřejnost do tak blízkých vzájemných vztahů. Kolekce zároveň představí zcela nová díla - sochy, kresby, malby a multimediální instalace. Kurátor výstavy: Petr Hájek Text: Petr Hájek (s využitím textu Adama Stanka) Grafika pozvánky: Marek Šilpoch Hudba na vernisáži: Lumiere



      SmeranaQ gallery is currently presenting KUGEMAT - an art exhibition of the works of Kurt Gebauer and Eugene Jindra - Morgenabendtot. The exhibition shows a selection of works by Kurt Gebauer a sculptor, a painter and a photographer, spanning from 1955 until the present. Most works are exhibited for the first time (drawings from the 1950's, the trubkouni (pipe-men) sculptures and Gebauer's largest canvas painting measuring 5 x 4 metres). The exhibition also introduces the sculptor Eugene Jindra, who works under a pseudonym Morgenabendtot. It is his very first exhibition. His family was prosecuted during WWII and he was later on prohibited from putting his ideas into practice under the communist regime, as such he only created privately. The exhibition presents over twenty of his sculptures, which are shrouded in mystery and work with ciphers. The exhibit is organised by the Cermak Eisenkraft gallery and ends on September 28, 2018. Free admission.

    The name BOTTEGA comes from the Italian word "la bottega", which refers to handicraft workshops that open onto the street: skilled designers offered their products to passers-by, who had the unique opportunity to observe them at their work. This is exactly the kind of space we have made available in our house for young and experienced artists to work alongside one another in shared studios, The generous, minimalistic lounge allows people interested in craftsmanship to meet artists and see how their works are created. Designers can meet both clients and other studio tenants to interact, inspire, and create. Our lounge is also a place for exhibiting the best works from a given studio. When selecting the designers to occupy our studios, we focused on fashion and fashion accessories, jewelry and footwear. BOTTEGA provides the environment for creating and exhibiting products in peace and comfort. Separate studios spread across the city are without doubt poetic, but we enjoy sharing, communicating and forming communities of highly individual creators.

    Our SmetanaQ Café & Bistro is the heart of the house at No. 4 Smetanovo nábřeží. It´s a meeting point for students, artists and people from all walks of life who enjoy a cup of excellent coffee or tea.

    Every morning our pastry cook comes to the kitchen to bake for you a wide variety of cakes, tarts, tartlets and fruit pies. Our kitchen also makes its own savoury desserts, quiches and sourdough bread as well as hot and cold breakfasts and substantial soups prepared from fresh vegetables and home-made bouillons. In the evening, you can sit with friends over a glass of wine not only inside the café but also on our newly opened terrace, which remains cool and shady on hot days. 

    We are proud to offer quality food by Czech producers from Bohemia and Moravia. We strive to make our guests feel good so that they will come back again not only to enjoy our food but – far more important – to gain new energy from this special place on the Vltava River bank, in a house that we wanted to restore to a new life.

      • Our Coffee and Tea

        We obtain our coffee from the Czech roaster DoubleShot, enthusiastic coffee experts who not only thoroughly understand coffee but also visit farms in many countries of Africa and South America. We regularly change our selection on offer; this year it has been possible to enjoy Guatemalan grain espresso or filtered coffee from Rwanda. We also offer tea imported by the TeaMountain in Prague-Karlín, which directly buys fragrant leaves from farms in Japan, Nepal, and India, among other countries.

      • The Interior

        Our café is an ideal location for your meetings, with its distinctive interior featuring Czech design. The tastefully refurbished interior is complemented by modern Bomma lamps, Ton chairs and a solid oak furniture. The rooms are full of the afternoon sun with the rippling reflections of the Vltava River. The large windows offer a beautiful view of the Petřín Hill and the Střelecký Island. In the winter, you can see the entire panorama of the Prague castle; in the summer, the view is partly obscured by the rich green foliage of the trees on the opposite side of the street. The atmosphere of the evening waterfront is enhanced by the illuminated trams that come to a halt across from the house and then continue on their journey.

      • Capacity

        Our indoor café area has eighty seats and our terrace another twenty. The café has a separate lounge with library, a popular venue for family celebrations, corporate events, interviews with journalists and book-signing sessions. A book club regularly meets here. The lounge can be rented along with the adjoining terrace.
