Tomas Vanek is one of the key figures of the second wave of post-conceptual art in Central Europe. He works with schematics and the creation of scenarios from everyday situations. Since the late 1990s, he has been creating spray-painted stencils for specific situations and places. His "Particips" can be described as principals of active participation, having disparate forms that range from subtle interventions all the way up to large scale projects, such as when he disassembled his own car and used the parts as stencils for a grand fresco. Most recently, with the help of stereophonic microphones, he has been making specific sound recordings of private spaces, which he describes as sound sculptures.
