Moravia, beautiful land III: Rohatec
Flesh&Brain / Marie Hájková, Lukáš Jiřička, Petr Šprincl
07.09. – 22.10.17
Beautiful Moravia denotes picturesque region of what was once called Great Moravia. Centuries passed and bones of many red-blooded forefathers began rustling again within its borders. Both good and evil demons awoke from a long sleep.
The near-fairytale region is in need of a new mythology, creative archaeology and raising of brand new idols. Also, it needs people to fight against obscurantism and help maintain local identity, the one built on hand-painted nationalism and embroidered catholicism, soaked in good amount of wine and spirits.
This exhibition combines documentary approach with archaeology while creating a space where new native totems meet with local handicrafts. It displays rare archaeological discoveries dating back to a time when Saints Cyril and Methodius brought Christian faith to pagan plains of Great Moravia.
