The Studio was established in 2010 in Bratislava by visual artist and architecture enthusiast Pavel Hache after his stay in Madrid and attending of Taller Zeuxis, a gesamtkunstwerk workshop led by architect and painter Juan Ramón Segura.
Mission of the Studio is to learn, travel, experiment, and embrace uncertainty and freedom of choice in the final result through the application of surrealist, metaphysical, extraterrestrial, morphological, collaborative, unfinished, generative, peripheral, and other non-conventional and multidisciplinary approaches.
Formally trained in the fields of civil engineering and applied research, my current visual work features representation of urban, industrial, architectural, minimal, and ambiguous atmospheres. I like the luminous, and spacial characteristics of things, weathering, urban archeology and geology. I like to work with humble natural, as well as ever-present and disregarded man-made materials.
Hipsight is a platform for spatial exploration and local intervention with particular focus on architecture, art, music, and performance. We search for overlaps between these and other disciplines including engineering, sociology, and ecology opening the way to alternative, underground, avant-garde and the non-traditional.
Hipsight's experimental and holistic approach embrace collaboration between friends from broad variety of fields including (and not limited to) visual arts, science, architecture, urban planning, engineering, music, theater and dance performance, as well as history, photography and film making.
The platform is curated through the mediums of photography, video, and writings on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Blogk page on the Studio website, respectively.
