Who Tells Whom About What: David Böhm & Jiří Franta

June 23 @ 10:00 am - September 30 @ 5:00 pm

Indoor & outdoor exhibition, Czech Centre & Czech Embassy, London

Using imaginary city models with staged micro stories, leading Czech artists David Böhm & Jiří Franta draw on current social and political issues to explore the city not only as a place of neighbourhood and coexistence but also as a crowded and fragmented world, in which it is necessary to reconsider some of the basic ideas.

Does the concept of nations still make sense? Wouldn’t it be possible to organise the planet better? Who sustains whom? And can we find a way to stop living at the expense of future generations?

Inspired by the exquisitely staged narrative paintings, familiar from the work of artists such as Pieter Brueghel, the artists’ own tableaux will be displayed as a large scale photo series in an outdoor exhibition on the fence of the Czech Embassy in London on busy Bayswater Road, while the models themselves will be exhibited in the gallery inside.

Exploring the ‘fence’ motif Böhm & Franta link the outdoor exhibition with the indoor one while referring to relations with our neighbours and borders beyond which we are not welcome, raising the question of who the ‘outsider’ really is.

Vitrínka Gallery, Czech Centre London,  Tue – Fri, 10 am – 5 pm

Outdoor exhibition on the fence of the Czech Embassy, Free access 24/7
