ANDREJ BELOTSVETOV (1923 PRAHA – 1997 PRAHA)
Paintings and drawings
An exhibition by a phenomenal but introverted artist. It presents the compelling story of a painter who was born in Prague with Argentine citizenship, then lived here for more than twenty years with a so-called Nansen refugee passport and who finally obtained Czechoslovakian citizenship in 1962. The exhibition has been prepared for the 100th anniversary of the artist's birth and includes over 200 paintings and drawings. The exhibition is accompanied by a number of photographs by Josef Sudek, Bělocvětov's longtime friend and patron, who photographed the painter in his studio.
TETS OHNARI, JAPAN – THE CRANE
The mirror elements on the floor are identical to the parts that make up the famous Japanese crane origami and correspond in their shape to the limbs that result from the usual folding of a paper crane. The work of Tets Ohnari depicts the beauty of the folding process from which the crane is born.
