Miroslava and Vladimíra Večeřovy
14.08. – 26.09.21
This project, conceptualised by sisters Miroslava and Vladimíra Večeřovy, responds to the new long-term dramaturgy of Entrance Gallery, which has been focusing on the issues of ecological sustainability and the relationship between humans and the environment since 2020. The exhibition of the Večeřovy sisters reflects the specific season in which it takes place, summer and the time of harvest, with its pivot point being the processing of medicinal herbs through the traditional process of maceration (leaching in oil) that they employ. The installation, comprised of the authorial glass vessels, will develop and change over time as the macerate matures. The artists will then distribute the macerate to the visitors at the end of the exhibition. The exhibition project is an expression of the relationship with the gift of nature and its healing powers that both artists cherish.
During the opening night, we will also present a processual performance by the duo Stony Tellers, who will serve “critical drinks” to the visitors in the audience. The drinks will be mixed and customised for each visitor individually. In such a personalised process of mixing, Stony Tellers will use the ingredients they have grown in their community garden, whose rental and realisation has been supported by Entrance Gallery.
This exhibition is supported by The Union for the Protection of Authorship GESTOR.
The exhibition program of Entrance Gallery is continuously supported by: Magistrát hl. města Prahy, The Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic and MČ Praha 6.
