Czech Visual Arts and Performances Take London By Storm


The remaining months of the year will see a focus on Czech visual arts and performances in London. Abstract art will be one of the key elements in the artistic industry. It will be Samuel Paučo, abstract artist of Slovak origin but Czech training and collaboration, who will be showcasing his work at the Start Art Fair in Saatchi Gallery London. The fair will take place between the 15th and 18th of September and it is the first time that Nová Galerie in Czech Republic participates in the international event.

Czech artist Roman Štětina will also be showcasing his work which investigates the process behind broadcast media (film, TV and radio). He works with installations and sculptures, as well as video, and his new feature length film will be screened at Spike Island. The abstract world of recording poems by Czech poet Jiří Kolář is the main premise of the film.

Dancing to Question Individuality

The visual arts aren’t the only ones that have been pushing Czech talent. Just a couple of months ago, the Collective Loss of Memory by DOT504 - which is choreographed and directed by Czech dancers Jozef Fruček and Linda Kapetanea - was present at Be Festival, where their group performed a dance which explored the brutal outcome of the influence of five individuals in each other and on the human thinking. The show is an award-winning performance and it made its way into London, once again proving that Czech talent should be taken into consideration significantly.
