Jiří Kolář: The Nude Figure

4. 10. – 17. 11. 2018

Galerie Zdeněk Sklenář is pleased to present an exhibition of the work of Jiří Kolář – poet, playwright, and later an experimental artist, who transformed the spoken word into an image, giving rise to a number of creative techniques. This series of 100 nudes, created using the crumplage technique and inspired by romantic lyricism, represents the endless possibilities offered by combinatorics and chance. Within the context of Kolář’s oeuvre, this cycle of female nudes is an exception, as he only very rarely used actual photographs for his collages.
