For HOT MESS, artist duo Julia Grybos & Barbora Zentková will be showing three digital prints from their recent body of work called Fingertips Dance. The series of 30 digital photographs, which captures several small–scale, home–made “DIY” objects, aimed at exploring, and patiently documents, the state of isolation during the times of lockdown. Fingertips Dance is based on the methods of the artists’ customary working process, applying their usual principles in the domestic environment’s micro scale, on a low budget and fully recycled level.
