The exhibition “Retro-reflection” is a newly created environment – a parallel to the artistʼs excursions of the city. He symbolically relates to them via the system of traffic signs. He is an embodiment of a man passing through the urban landscape and an iconic depiction of his routes. Artefacts are abstracted maps and relics of long-term interventions, documentations retrospectively set into particular space-time coordinates. At the same time, the central work physically remains outside the gallery, although the entire exhibition is related to it. Another artefact receives its form by continuous replacing material from the gallery with material taken from the street. The guerrilla methods are simultaneously conditioned by the mutual permeability between the institution and the street and by their vital mutual relations.
