Teleport means travelling from place to place without a lapse of time. The spectator will travel through the bizarreness of a country that he previously had no idea existed. But it does. Have a nice trip.
Hotel Patria, Štrbské Pleso – a picturesque mountain lake of glacial origin. It was spring of 1965, when a young slovak actress Magda Vášáryová (then still very little-known) was in this hotel on a leisure stay. After she took a bath in the lake in front of the hotel, she got an offer for a role in the movie Markéta Lazarová, which made her famous. Therefore we can see a ladder–symbol in the landscape painting, which symbolizes the rise.
Train Station Poprad, High Tatras, Slovakia – This unique view on sensitively planted concrete jungle in front of Tatras can be spotted from train window on the train station Poprad – Tatry. Recommended for tourists that love contrast of nature and concrete.
Tatralandia, High Tatras, Slovakia – Well known swimming pool and sauna paradise surrounded by mountains, used mostly in summer. Only a chosen few know that there is a colored flamingo that shows itself next to one of the pools. And it has been showing itself for years, to those who accidentally have a sip of water from that pool.
These images are a part of the project Teleport, that reflects the stereotypes of Slovak tourism by visualising both stereotypical touristic places and not well known but original cult places.
