Vision of Image

Opening: 23 September at 6 pm

Curator: Adéla Machová
24. 9. - 4. 11. 2020

Artists: Daniel Hanzlík (CZ), Małgorzata Szymankiewicz (PO), Elisa Muliere (IT), Kitso Lynn Lelliott (SA), Brian Wekesa (KEY), Aniela Wesoły (PO)

Exhibition project introduces artwork of contemporary artists dealing with visual codes and symbolics using it as an element of imaginative story. Technology of paging is blurring,vision of simple description of a form or ideal future state is disappearing. 

The exhibition opens to its audience two independent creative approaches in contemporary art and does not aim to present a whole range of possibilities; on the contrary, it builds on the simple principle of mutual distinction of chosen approaches and personal curatorial experience from abroad internships. It presents abstract work (Elisa Muliere, Małgorzata Szymankiewicz, Aniela Wesoły) characterized by its objectlessness and poetics which uses the means of expression of colors, lines and structures, and conceptual art (Daniel Hanzlík, Kitso Lynn Lelliott, Brian Wekesa) working with pictorial symbol bearing an idea dealing with various cultural and social topics.

Curator: Adéla Machová (CZ)

29. 9. – 30. 10. 2020

Gallery 2

Artist: Jan C. Löbl
Curator: Adéla Machová

Exhibition of textile designer Jan C. Löbl presents newly processed patterns, swatches and decors from the early 20th century created in factories in Krušné mountains which have become inspirational material for authors‘ wallpapers. Visual imprints of specific textile memory are layered, combined, digitized and viewed from other perspectives not only thanks to new technologies, but also through controlled error being manually distorted by the author during the printing process. Gallery 2 space is filled with specific pattern-map that you can observe from the neighbouring empty white room, from above or outer space through a glass window. Using digital overlap, segments of the past are being confronted with the presence, the original found designs and sample books are hazed towards their new transformation.

The solo exhibition of Jan C. Löbl who is a doctoral student in Visual Communication at the Faculty of Art and Design at JEPU shows creative approaches used in his dissertation (guided by prof. Zdena Kolečková).
