Universum: Human Records/SEFO 2021 Triennial

Olomouc Museum of Art – Large Exhibition Hall (Nave)
JUNE 24, 2021 – JANUARY 2, 2022

The human body as a subject and an instrument of cognition is the theme of an exhibition presenting four Central European artists: Luboš Plný, Tea Smetanová, József Hajdú and Štefan Oslej. The common denominator of their work is the search for personal identity, connection with the exact sciences and the theme of birth and extinction. Selected works touch on examples of scientific practice (X-rays, anatomical drawings), while shifting them into new contexts. The exhibition reflects man as a distinct “universum” that deals not only with exact science, but also with fine arts, with these two different approaches permeating in an inventive and enriching way.  

Curator: Šárka Belšíková
