Opening on Wednesday September 25, 2019 at 6 pm
We have invited eight male and female artists from the Czech Republic, Germany and Iceland to put their works related to this topic on display. Using various artistic positions involving aspects of “home,” the exhibition aims at oscillating between two poles: home as a “peaceful place” in all its spontaneity, normality and happiness, and home as a place full of uncertainties coming from both inside and outside.
We are aware of the fact that it is not possible for us to embrace the topic of a “home” as a whole, yet it is in our power to focus on some of its aspects. After all, to introduce all aspects and views of places people consider their homes would probably not be possible even with the largest exhibition space in the world. We would therefore like to invite all those interested in this topic to this small exhibition – if they like it, the space will allow them to ponder over and talk about their home-related feelings and the importance of home on their own.
It might be therefore safe to say that “home” is the general basis for a human being, yet it is different and unique for each and every one of us. This uniqueness does not prevent us from acknowledging the existence of various homes, some more similar to each other than the others, though. And what does your home look like?
