Mill Island | opening ceremony

We cordially invite you to the three-day celebration of the opening of the reconstructed Automatic Mills in Pardubice, including our new GAMPA building and the first Mill Island exhibition!

participating artists: David Böhm & Jiří Franta, Ondřej Buddeus & co. (Tereza Bínová, Milan Děžinský, Alžběta Stančáková), Kateřina Jirsová, Kristina Fingerlandová, Artur Magrot, Ian Mikyska, Tomáš Moravec, and others

The multi-layered project with which GAMPA enters into a new phase of its existence explores the possibilities of time-space narration in the context of one of the most iconic structures in Pardubice: the Automatic Mills. More than an exhibition, this is an artistic environment – architecture inside architecture. The narrative is focused into three chapters: reverbation, shift, transformation. 

The reverbation chapter explores changed urban acoustics in the context of the transformation of cities, as well as voices of the public and various communities in public spaces. Shift is a chapter about work, its transformation, changes in priorities – it is about labour in the context of factory shifts as well as about the value and valuation of artistic labour. The transformation chapter addresses not only the transformation of the site itself, but especially the transformation of institutions.

GAMPA | concert | performance | Electroconexion

In between exhibitions, GAMPA becomes, among other things, a refuge for short-term art projects and performances. The creative meeting of two improvisers with two very different approaches to live electronic music is one such temporary intervention. Petr Vrba is a tireless explorer of non-idiomatic improvisation using trumpets, clarinets, synthesizers, DIY electronics or vibrating speakers. Mathieu Chamagne develops interactive devices, explores and questions the meaning and role of the musical space in the interpretation of electronic music, blurring the boundaries between composition, interpretation and improvisation. His interactive installation Apertures, which he will bring with him to Pardubice, is both an object and a non-haptic sound instrument working with gestures. Their approaches, instruments and the gallery space meet in this unique performance.
