Bohuslava Olešová: A Thirst for the Infinite (teaser)
From 4 August 2021 House of Arts Brno will open three new exhibitions - Other Things Held Constant by Jaromír Novotný, Eating Planet by Anna Hulačová and A Thirst for the Infinite by Bohuslava Olešová. We present three short teasers about the upcoming exhibitions before the visitors will get to visit them personally. All exhibitions will be opened with vernissage on the same day - 3rd August 2021 at 6 pm.
The work of Bohuslava Olešová has long been concerned with cycles of paintings, drawings, spatial installations, site-specific projects and events that mirror all-pervading energies, the relationships between life on earth and the position of man in the cosmos. It is one of these extensive cycles, A Thirst for the Infinite, that gave the title to the exhibition at the Jaroslav Král Gallery. In her works, the artist interprets the intertwining time and storylines by layering colour surfaces and drawing interventions - older and newer layers of paint merge in the same way that the human past merges with the present. By subsequently cutting through the layer of paints, all sorts of hidden histories and secrets are suggested. In addition, the colour symbolism enhances the ideological message of the work.
The exhibition will be open from 4 August to 3 October 2021 and includes the outdoor installation From Nowhere to Nowhere in front of the main entrance to the House of Arts.
