Fotograf Gallery

Jiří Franta and Jana Kochánková

Opening: Tuesday, February 26, at 6 pm
Curator: Edith Jeřábková

Borges‘s claim that mirrors contain something monstrous led Jiří Franta and Jana Kochánková to make a spatially-installed game based on mirroring and photography.  It expresses the absence vs. presence of objects and visitors in the present time and in the past.  The ROOM space is divided with opposite-facing walls and mirrors, whose mutual relationship allows for the creation of the illusion of an exhibition of spatial works that were once in the gallery but are no more.  From this perspective one can speak of the TIA exhibition as a specific form of artistic documentation.
