GlassArt: Jan Fisar - Kontraversion

Jan Fišar – Weight of Time

Exhibition date: September 2020 – September 2021

To pay tribute to the legendary artist Jan Fišar (1933 – 2010): on the tenth anniversary of his death we are exhibiting the last available sculptures on our top floor. In this retrospective exhibition, you can see his first glass sculpture „Head“ from 1967 and his last work „Predator“ he created in 2010. Jan Fišar grew up in Prague, where he studied sculpture under Prof. Wágner. In 1966, the prominent glass artists Professor Stanislav Libenský and his wife Jaroslava Brychtová offered Jan Fišar the chance to collaborate on their project for the 1967 World Exposition in Montreal. This is how he first encountered glass art, little suspecting that this material would determine his entire future. He created glass sculptures that stand completely independently for themselves and that cannot be classified into the current movements of glass art.

Dreams – Alena Matĕjka & Lars Widenfalk

Exhibition date: November 2019 – May 2020

Joint exhibition of the artist couple Alena Matĕjka and Lars Widenfalk.

Alena Matĕjka:
After graduating from the Secondary School of Glassmaking in Kamenický Šenov, Alena Matejka (born 1966 in the Czech Republic) studied at the Prague Academy of Fine Arts. Her professor Vladimír Kopecký left a lasting impression on her, encouraging her to disregard all conventions and embark on a quest for the unique. The artist works with glass, stone and organic materials. Her objects carry a special mysticism within them, as can be seen in the installation “My Dear, Hunter from Lavondyss”, which we previously showed in her solo exhibition in our gallery in 2015. The new installation “She is not Me”, which can be seen in our new exhibition alongside other works by the artist, was recently on display in her solo exhibition at one of the world’s most important glass museums, the Toyama Glass Art Museum in Japan. Matejka finds inspiration for her work in random encounters in her daily life, in connections to other people, as well as in nature. Living myths, cultures and stories permeate her works.
