“BIBLE, DISNEY, PORN. YOU HAVE IT ONE ‘is a solo exhibition of photographer Lenka L. Lukačovičová (* 1987), which consists of analogue photographs of various sizes and author’s book.

Author freely follows previous projects through a new series of photographs and the exhibition “BIBLE, DISNEY, PORNO. YOU HAVE IT ONE ”. She continues to engage in the medium of photography in relation to performance. What is changing is the thematic area of ​​her interest. This time, she explores the works of female authors belonging to the so-called The international feminist avant-garde wave of the 1970s, which reviewed their view of the female body in the context of the socio-political situation. They constructed the identity of the woman in a more provocative, radical, poetic and ironic ways than the depictions and views of their male colleagues. The works of Austrian authors Birgit Jürgenssen and Valie Export are particularly beneficial and close to Lukačovičová. She focuses on the Viennese authors mainly because of the fact that in the context of the Slovak art of the 1970s the wave of feminism is absent, with the exception of solitary authors.

However, Lenka L. Lukačovičová does not perceive her photography as a modern revolt. She looks for rather identical and repeating situations through which she gradually moves towards mild irony and joke. She takes on herself  a new role, the role of the mother, which is immediately projected into her photographic work. As a female artist, she changes her status by finding poetics in everyday repeating situations in which we can perceive tiny nuances. She takes pictures not only of herself and her little daughter, but also of everyday situations that accompany her with her home routine – the home environment or exterior during walks. From its own, personal and intimate dimension, she moves towards a general and common views. Without “retouching”,  she captures the natural states and feelings of women (not only) mothers such as fatigue, exhaustion, pain, sadness, isolation, but also joy, hope, satisfaction, pride, contemplation and change. Photos are thematically layered and thus she finds other relationships and meanings between them. We can perceive the series as a kind of visual logbook that includes the routine aspect but is unique and unrepeatable. As the title of the exhibition says “BIBLE, DISNEY, PORN. YOU’RE IT ONE ”borrowed from an anonymous legacy on the marble block that the author found in the public wandering in Ružinov’s routine, anything can become a routine, but at the same time it can contain many connotations and views. No moment is the same, because it cannot be repeated in the same space-time form.
