Within the framework of the Invocable reality exhibition Roman Ondák presents Teaching to Walk a performance in which a mother accompanies her son as he takes his first steps in the gallery.

Ondák invites us to rediscover that instant, not by representing it, but by letting reality enter the museum in the form of an artistic work.

Exhibition

I like to work with what is often called "cultural heritage", but the materials that I use are banal and clichéd, like sugar blocks, doors, couscous, rugs, official documents.
