To Nowhere with Joy

Milan Knížák's most recent works are presented in the exhibition. A number of large pain-tings, which are not ashamed to admit the influence of Romantic landscape, the still life and the figure, for the most part by a method which appeared in art sometime at the beginning of the 20th century. The tendency towards non-programmatic art is deliberate. Evidence of this is the mass of small pictures composed as units but put together from paintings which are distanced by their form, to show in essence the equivalence of differing approaches. Domina-ting the exhibition is the large instalation "Betlém" (Crib), where the defining factor consists of large sculptures cast in rubber by a special technology developed in Kaučuk Kralupy works. The computer pictures form a special part, where the artist selects, from the most vari-ed works by artists of different periods and styles, the parts he likes, and mixes them into a new picture in which he allows himself every sort of intervention in paint, so that these works are not collages but paintings in their own right. Also presented in the exhibition are puppet designs by Milan Knížák.
