Zdeněk Sýkora: Combinator

14. 9. – 20. 10. 2021

Zdeněk Sýkora, as one of the first artists, included the computer into his preparations of a work of art at the early 1960s. Even though he worked with systems, programmes or randomness, he remained a painter, too; he had been occupied with shapes, colours and their mutual relations in an original way.

Art that doesn't feel or isn't capable of perceiving the spiritual pathos of contemporary scientific knowledge and experience, is not the art of today or the future. I continue to be excited about the opportunities offered by new media and knowledge, so long as they deepen or elucidate the expression of my outlook on life.
Zdeněk Sýkora in an interview with Vítek Čapek, 1985
