Magdalena Jetelova Transformations of Place and Space17. 12. 2021 – 8. 5. 2022 Venue Swimming Pool Temporary Exhibition Curator Tomáš Vlček
An exhibition of drawings, light and acoustic objects, architectural models and large-format photographs presents the fundamental works by Magdalena Jetelová that contributed to the transformation of visual art from the last decades of the 20th century to the present. Her work is based on a new perception and articulation of the relationship between sculptural and architectural object and space. Jetelová develops these relationships as motifs that actualize the possibilities of making the abstract and geometric-topological properties of space-time visible. These are the motifs of transformation, the creation and disappearance of shapes, the determination of the necessity and at the same time indeterminacy of the boundaries of place and space, the motifs of light, sound and shape vibrations analogous to the vibrations and transmissions of information in neurological processes and functions of the brain. These works are inspirational in their entry into space-time by actualizing the creative faculties hidden in the processes of perception and imagination, works inspirational in their distinct and bold confrontations and resonances between natural reality, the environment of technical civilization and abstraction.
The exhibition presents drawings, photographs and models related to Magdalena Jetelová's important and well-known works such as, for example, the project The South City, Iceland and Atlantic Wall, along with a new project that deals with visual and acoustic vibrations.
The exhibition was realized in collaboration with the Interdisciplinary Seminar of Topological Studies of the Faculty of Arts and Architecture of the Technical University of Liberec and the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University in Prague, along with other faculties of the Technical University of Liberec.
