In addition to his own artistic work and pedagogical activities, he is active as a curator and dramaturg of the activities of the Banská St a nica residential platform, which he co-founded. At JAMA, he will perform a solo online performance – Fungi Cyani that starts with collecting mushrooms, an act that is inseparably linked to Milan Adamčiak and his activities in the district. Random movement and the random finding of a random number and species of mushrooms is the starting point for the visual composition on paper that arises from this performance.
