14.06.2012 - 02.09.2012MILOŠ ŠEJN / ARCHIVES & CABINETS
Within the series of summer exhibition introducing the works of artists connected with this region, the Liberec Regional Gallery is preparing a large retrospective exhibition of the artist and pedagogue of many years, professor Miloš Šejn, born on 10 August 1947 in Jablonec nad Nisou. Between 1990 and 2010, the artist led the Studio of conceptual art in the interdisciplinary department of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. For over fifteen years, the artist has also been engaged in organizing the Bohemiae Rosa Laboratory, dealing with relations between the historical, humanized landscape and the mental and emotional state of people (site-specific art projects).
Miloš Šejn's life-long topic has been the interrelation between the elements, the search for the common laws of the realm of Nature and the artistic form of a work and the transformation of feelings that occurs in particular places in the countryside - often parts of Český ráj or Krkonoše - into a multifaceted art form, including new media.
The whole of the gallery's ground floor (an area of about 360 m2) will be taken up by a cross-section of the artist's work, from paintings, large-scale drawings, artist's books, and photographs to new media and space installations. The exhibition will include works from the end of the 1950s to the present, in a way as yet unprecedented for this artist.
