In the case of the In the Shadow of the Lion exhibition, Jiří Skála sees his role as that of curator. During the guided tour, he clarifies where he sees differences between the work of the visual artist and that of curator. He explains the backstory to his interest in the issue of non-productive time. He also acquaints visitors with the method he used for the sorting and presentation of documents relating to the organization of free time; specifically, the declarations and by-laws of free time institutions, associations and movements. He speaks of how the image materials relate to the author’s essay which is, once again, an integral part of his exhibition.
The exhibition is a part of Fotograf Festival #8 “Non-Work: Occupied by Leisure Time”
