Jan Turner: Parents’ voice in the back

25. 9. 2015 - 21. 11. 2015
DIVUS London, Enclave 5, 50 Resolution Way, London SE8 4AL

In his latest London exhibition, Czech sculptor and conceptual artists Jan Turner explores the early interpersonal experience, during which we form a whole series of habits that influence our future life, including the places, relationships and situations we find ourselves in. Inevitably connected to our parents voices whether real or imagined, these experiences are part of our mind and bodies. Drawing from his practice as both artist and physical therapist, Turner confronts us with photographs of deformed backs presented as disturbing mementos of our inter-subjectivity.

Kateřina Šedá: Bedřichovice Upon Thames

3. 9. 2015, 17:00
Bedřichovice, Czech Republic

The event marks the culmination of the five-year project of Kateřina Šedá, taking place in the South Moravian village of Bedřichovice in 2011–2015. The artist transposed this village to London in 2011 and eighty inhabitants of Bedrichovice had only one task in front of Tate Modern: to behave as if at home, from sweeping the pavement, washing the car, gardening or doing sports... Now, Kateřina brings London to Bedřichovice, juxtaposing the megacity’s well known symbols to those of a small Moravian community. The event will include taking the joint photograph of locals, book launch, guided tour of the exhibition, music performance and a night screening of ‘Kateřina Šedá: Mythmaking’ by Jan Gogola Jr.
