2007 Exhibitions

By Pen and Ink- Jiří Jun 

Unipetrol ČEZ, as ČESKÝ TELECOM, a.s. MERO ČR, a. s. Exportní garanční a pojišťovací společnost, a.s. Eurotel Praha, spol. s.r.o.The title of this exhibition, (not pretending to be neither literary, symbolic, nor poetic), was chosen by the author. It strictly defines Ji?í Jun’s simple techno-material means of expression. Notwithstanding, this expressive manifestation through the pen, depositing traces of Indian ink onto a paper background, encompasses a wide field of the author’s creativity during both his life gone by, and in his life today. For more than forty years, Ji?í Jun’s creative work has been dominated by pen and ink.

Wet Drawings  - Daisy Mrázková

Daisy Mrázek belongs amongst the interesting members and personalities of the famous artistic group UB 12 and also to the entire upcoming generation of the late nineteen fifties. Up until now, her free creation has never been fully appreciated, but naturally her works developed since the end of the nineteen fifties. She encroaches into the area of painting, in which in her abstract compositions she overlaps and again washes off several layers, before she arrives at the final solution. An important part of the artist is her drawings, which she always develops in broad collections, in which are applied certain experimental methods of the author. Sometimes she uses pen and ink drawing, in which they stem from an automatic movement of the hand. This time a noteworthy collection of drawings generated by dissolvable pastels is being presented. She uses the entire set of pastels, and draws into wet paper with them. She calls her method “wet drawing”. The exhibition deals with a series of small studies, which is separated into several smaller cycles. In these cycles it is possible to trace, what can be reached in a systematic search for the chosen method.

Point-Line-Universe - Frank Malina

From November 8, 2007 until January 7, 2008 as part of the third international festival ENTER, Malina’s kinetic works are after more than twenty years exhibited collectively in Prague’s Museum Kampa. Malina’s use of advanced techniques of his time, amongst them is “kinetic painting” or “Lumidyne system should not overshadow the beauty and sensuality of these kinetic light, mainly abstract compositions, which entice the viewer with its sensuous fluctuations of colours and shapes. This Czech-American Frank Joseph Malina (1912-1981) is recorded in history as one of the pioneers of two diametrically distinct, but notwithstanding mutually permeating and linked worlds: the world of science and the world of art. His prodigious inventiveness in the filed of aeronautics, including the invention of the first American sounding rocket or the founding of an organization for the creation of research stations on the moon with a human crew, diversified art through new discoveries in the field of “science for oneself”.
This exhibition was prepared by curator Vit Havránek in cooperation with Museum Kampa and CIANT – the International Centre for Art and New Technologies.

Little Squares - Jiří Mrázek

Jiří Mrázek is an outstanding personality of the group UB 12 and in the Czech art scene of the second half of the last century. He has organized a series of solo exhibitions at home and abroad and is represented in many important public and private collections. He has behind him an extensive body of work, which he has been developing and expanding since the beginning of the nineteen forties. This exhibition is presenting works from the last few years, when he matures to extreme abstraction which is developed from various organized squared grids. Into these grids he introduces colours. One should never border next to each other the same tones; maximally they can touch each other at the corners of the squares. He always works according to a specific regularity, which to a great extent determines the final version of the painting.
