Exhibition - Depth flowers - Jan Hladil

Updated: Mar 11, 2023

March 11th - April 3rd, 2022

A flower, as a symbol of beauty, could not have arisen without light. At his first solo exhibition, the artist Jan Hladil works with the unpredictability of nature, its randomness and chaos. He transforms the gallery into an organic unit, into which he brings life - light through his works of art. This is for the first time perceived by the author in the context of the new place at the Flowers of the Deep exhibition - until then, the works were set mainly outside the gallery walls, in the environment of festivals and outdoor projects. This shift is therefore a crucial step in the author's approach to creation. Following the example of biotop, the author transforms the gallery into a habitat, in which he lets works of art come to life with the help of mappings, audiovisual installations and conscious work with light. The man-made self-sufficient micro-landscape shrouded in fog evokes a sci-fi atmosphere, which further underlines its location in its primarily non-natural environment. However, the living organisms, which in this case are individual works, are still able to continue to function, and even to evolve and grow. This is made possible by light - the symbol of life, which is Hladil's primary instrument.
