Time in Mikulov is like a process.

Paintings seen as building material. With some help from my friends, I walled into the Chateau wall the paintings I bought in second-hand and junk shops. I filled an empty space in the wall next to the cut and roughly walled-in Chateau window. Police came to check the installation. Several days after the opening, the paintings began to disappear. Time as a loop. The list of streets gives away how much “regional the place is and yet so much ours”. I narrated a time loop with the list of all the streets in Mikulov. From the Regional Museum, I moved a 1970s sestiny set into the temporary gallery area in the Chateau. I finished the installation with the sound loop and a projection of the original location of the seating set past which I walked almost every day.

The month I spent at the Mikulov Symposium was an intensive experience for me. I will not forget meeting many people and their opinions. The Symposium is a part of the Mikulov summer and I hope it copes well with those waves of tourists. I am glad that the Symposium has been promised a permanent area. It will perhaps become more accessible and open “outside the season” as well. Thank you
