Král je mrtev
6/7 - 9/27 2019Facebook event
The gallery Cermak-Eisenkraft presents its already tenth original exposition named King is Dead / Král je mrtev, introducing the creations of Danish visual artist Kirstine Roepstorff and Czech visual artist Matyáš Chochola. The event takes place in the premises of Cermak Eisenkraft POP-UP Gallery in the SmetanaQ house.
The Danish representative in the Venice Biennale and the laureate of the Jindřich Chalupecký Award meet to present both their recent and older works, paintings, collages, statues and installations that create a symbolical, in shades of darkness rendered landscape that is allegorically produced to narrate mythical stories and to evoke a contemplative, at the same time magnificently spiritual and powerful mood.
The works of both authors are connected by their experimental philosophical interpretations of human existence. They represent the basic pillars of cultural and spiritual essence of the mind that are stored in our subconscious, defining and predetermining our ability to grasp the situation and orientate ourselves in the environment. The works on display evoke their own archetypes that should be comprehensible to the viewer even in the absence of a particular cultural association.

Uwe Hand / Malíř
Podmanivá atmosféra, dramaticky vystupňované kompozice, citová vypjatost a využití hry světla a stínu. Tyto prvky používá ve své malířské tvorbě německý figurativní umělec Uwe Hand, jehož výstavu s názvem „Malíř“ uvede galerie Cermak Eisenkraft. Uwe Hand vyrostl na mořském pobřeží v nejsevernější části Německa, což jeho tvorbu výrazně ovlivnilo – na obrazech často zachycuje symboly čtyř přírodních živlů. Výstava probíhá od 30. 11. 2018 do 14. 2. 2019 a v jejím průběhu vyjde autorova monografie.
Pudr, chrom i elegance
Poprvé se pro veřejnost otevírá unikátní sbírka prvorepublikových vintage doplňků ke stoletému výročí založení republiky - 100 let - 100 doplňků. Výstava vám odhalí tajemství ruční práce luxusních kožených doplňků zvané Maroquinerie. Pro výstavu Pudr, chrom i elegance byli osloveni designéři z Bottegy ve SmetanaQ, aby vytvořili vlastní vizi doplňků inspirovanou vintage kolekcí. O funkcionalistický zážitek se postará atelier Michala Hagary, který tvoří nadčasový nábytek z ušlechtilých materiálů. Výstava se koná od 9. 11. 2018 - 2. 12. 2018.

Our SmetanaQ Café & Bistro is the heart of the house at No. 4 Smetanovo nábřeží. It´s a meeting point for students, artists and people from all walks of life who enjoy a cup of excellent coffee or tea.
Every morning our pastry cook comes to the kitchen to bake for you a wide variety of cakes, tarts, tartlets and fruit pies. Our kitchen also makes its own savoury desserts, quiches and sourdough bread as well as hot and cold breakfasts, afternoon menu, and substantial soups prepared from fresh vegetables and home-made bouillons. In the evening, you can sit with friends over a glass of wine not only inside the café but also on our terrace, which remains cool and shady on hot days.
We are proud to offer quality food by Czech producers from Bohemia and Moravia. We strive to make our guests feel good so that they will come back again not only to enjoy our food but – far more important – to gain new energy from this special place on the Vltava River bank, in a house that we wanted to restore to a new life.
Our Coffee and Tea
We obtain our coffee from the Czech roaster DoubleShot, enthusiastic coffee experts who not only thoroughly understand coffee but also visit farms in many countries of Africa and South America. We regularly change our selection on offer; this year it has been possible to enjoy Guatemalan grain espresso or filtered coffee from Rwanda. We also offer tea imported by the TeaMountain in Prague-Karlín, which directly buys fragrant leaves from farms in Japan, Nepal, and India, among other countries.
Our café is an ideal location for your meetings, with its distinctive interior featuring Czech design. The tastefully refurbished interior is complemented by modern Bomma lamps, Ton chairs and a solid oak furniture. The rooms are full of the afternoon sun with the rippling reflections of the Vltava River. The large windows offer a beautiful view of the Petřín Hill and the Střelecký Island. In the winter, you can see the entire panorama of the Prague castle; in the summer, the view is partly obscured by the rich green foliage of the trees on the opposite side of the street. The atmosphere of the evening waterfront is enhanced by the illuminated trams that come to a halt across from the house and then continue on their journey.
Our indoor café area has eighty seats and our terrace another twenty. The café has a separate lounge with library, a popular venue for family celebrations, corporate events, interviews with journalists and book-signing sessions. A book club regularly meets here. The lounge can be rented along with the adjoining terrace.
