ROMAN ONDAK - TIME CAPSULE,
MODERN ART OXFORD, MARCH, 2011
Ondák’s work has a conceptual and performative focus and at its core, an interest in transferring real life experiences into the context of art. For Time Capsule, Ondák will expand on this trajectory with two new works that reference recent world events. Visitors to the Upper Galleries will be conceptually transported to particular sites,
provoking us to question our perceptions of the spaces around us and to inhabit environments that have a strong resonance with the contemporary psyche. The first work, Time Capsule, makes direct reference to the incident at the San José mine in Chile in 2010, in which 33 miners were trapped for 69 days.
