We Like Them More Than Gems, They Are Dearer to Us Than Gold – is the title of the installation that I created at the Mikulov Art Symposium 2010. Boards with surface from silvery abrasive dust recall the Walk of Fame on Hollywood Boulevard, which is homage to the artists of entertainment industry. I made use of the unique encounter of seven contemporary visual artists who took part in the symposium (Milena Dopitová, Iren Jůzová, František Kowolowski, Petr Lysáček, Petr Písařík, Tereza Velíková, Michaela Vrbková) and asked them for cooperation in creating my work. Through bodily imprints, ambiguous at first sight, the passing becomes permanent; through taking away moisture and solidifying of liquid components, a touch becomes a relic. The boards are marked with carved plexi-glass with the artist’s name, the date and exact time when the imprint was made, signature and the symposium’s logo. Part of the installation is black-and-white photo documentation of the creation of each imprint. The work “We Like Them More Than Gems, They Are Dearer to Us Than Gold” is a reference and an impulse to think about the sense of using the artist’s talents, and questioning of the tendencies to adore and pay social respect to anyone who complies with the trends of the media world. The installation is complete with an inconspicuous black object on the wall with the plastic inscription “Use Your Time”.
