Interested in the role of the body in contemporary society, Michal Adamovský creates pristine, high-contrast photographs that capture his subjects as they interact with culturally charged natural and built environments. Working in series, he moves between documentary projects and staged scenes to explore a wide range of human behaviors. For his “Exhibition” series, Adamovský used his own body as subject to reflect on the nature of exhibition spaces and how we interact with them. Working through some of Europe’s most celebrated contemporary art museums, he inserted his own body—bent to form uncanny shapes and positions—into empty galleries. Even when the human figure isn’t present in Adamovský’s work, it is suggested. In “Short Story About An Island,” date trees found along the Dead Sea are anthropomorphized, the dried plants bearing an eerie resemblance to people.
