Another Air

A friend’s resent trip to Prague reminded me that I completely forgot to tell you about MY recent trip to Prague.  It has been a sunny day and a cool wind was blowing and bringing another air to the city.

 “Another Air” is a name of the exhibition displaying past two decades of Czech and Slovak Surrealism at Prague’s Old Town Hall.

The exhibits were very eclectic: from oil paintings, to colorful drawings, to totem sculptures, to video installations, to mind-disturbing collages, showing a true all-embracing nature of Surrealism.

Wandering between the exhibits in the narrow corridors of the ancient building one could read quotations about art by Czech and Slovak artists and prominent. I liked very much the passage of Blazej Ingr: “One cannot reach for expressive means as one would for the kitchen utensils. It is necessary to reach for them as one reaches for a paperweight in a fury”. 

Speaking of art and fury… Washing my brushes at the end of the day today, I thought it did look quite furious :-), so I made a photo.

Nice weekend to all.
