*1988, Prague, Czech Republic
Jan Poupě’s work interacts with a large number of fields, artistic disciplines and inspirational channels making it relatively difficult to stably localize and place it under one unifying concept. However, in diving into his work let us proceed genealogically and look for his artistic origin. Every artist comes to a point in their life when they begin to become aware of their desire to express a cognizance of the reality surrounding them. In Poupě’s case this could have been the movement of an abandoned landscape on the border of the city and nature, a fascination with physical phenomena, or, perhaps most likely, a realization of his own awareness and the process of perceiving reality.
