Richard Loskot nasce a Most (CZ) nel 1984. Vive e lavora ad Usti nad Labem (CZ). Studia presso la facoltà di architettura dell'università di Liberec e all'Istituto di Belle Arti di Monaco. Ha esposto in Germania, UK, Romania, Repubblica Ceca e Repubblica Slovacca. Nel 2012 e nel 2014 è stato tra i cinque finalisti del premio piu` prestigioso della Repubblica Ceca Jindřich Chalupecký con menzione speciale nel 2012. Nei mesi di gennaio e febbraio 2014 ha svolto la residenza all’International Studio & Curatorial Program di New York. Nel settembre 2014 ha partecipato alla mostra collettiva Europa, Europa curata da Hans Ulrich Obrist, Thomas Boutoux, Gunnar B. Kvaran presso l'Astrup Fearnley Museet di Oslo. 
Attualmente è presente in due mostre collettive: Nature. Arte ed Ecologia, a cura di Margherita de Pilati, alla Galleria Civica di Trento and Arthouse Lapidarium, a cura di Lenka Lindaurová al National Museum a Praga.

l lavoro di Richard Loskot analizza lo spazio da un punto di vista tecnologico per dar vita a sistemi aperti, che interagiscono con l'ambiente stesso: la luce naturale, le onde radio, ma anche la presenza stessa degli spettatori alimenta il meccanismo. Mentre la presenza di esseri viventi da origine a delle variazioni dei parametri ambientali, i sistemi stessi sono condizionati nel loro funzionamento da questi cambiamenti: sono le persone stesse, che inconsciamente alterando le condizioni dell'ambiente in cui si trovano facendo aumentare o dimunire i valori di temperatura ed umidità, come accade in Logging the Present, 2012.

Richard Loskot was born in Most (CZ) in 1984. Lives and works in Usti nad Labem (CZ). He studied in the faculty of art and architecture in the university of Liberec as well as in the Munich school of fine art. He has exhibited in Germany, the UK, and in Romania, as well as in the Czech Republic and in Slovakia. He has been in 2012 and 2014 one of the five finalists of the most prestigious prize in Czech Republic Jindřich Chalupecký prize with special mention. In January and February 2014 he has done a residence in the International Studio & Curatorial Program of New York. In September 2104 he did a group exhibition Europe, Europe curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Thomas Boutoux, Gunnar B. Kvaran at Astrup Fearnley Museet in Oslo. 
Now he is present in two group shows: Nature. Arte ed Ecologia, curated by Margherita de Pilati, in Galleria Civica in Trento and Arthouse Lapidarium, curated by Lenka Lindaurová at the National Museum in Prague.

The works of Richard Loskot analyze space from a technological point of view in order to create open systems that relate together the environment, natural light, radio waves and, at times, the presence of the visitors. If, in fact, the human presence generates changes in the outside environment, the internal environment too undergoes variations as a result of the physical presence of people who potentially, and unknowingly, alter its state and help, for example, to change the values of humidity and temperature, as in Logging the Present, 2012.
