Komensky Street No. 10

Two worlds. One where there are right and sharp angles, but it is still soft and supple. And the second, translucent, full of haze and hoarfrost, where only what is not pointed is possible. The first room has a flat ceiling, the second is vaulted. Or is it the other way around? But it doesn't matter at all, only what they have in common is important.

Félix Blume: Dream's Cricket

30. 9. — 31. 10. 2021

sound installation, workshop

sound gallery IGLOO
Komensky Street No. 10
Jihlava
Curator: Miloš Vojtěchovský

A sound installation where each "speaker-cricket" is producing its own unique singing. While we sleep, crickets sing along to our slumber. Since we often listen to them in chorus, as part of the project "Los grillos del sueňo," we decided to look for the singularity in each cricket. During a workshop, every kid raised a couple of crickets and recorded the male?s singing at night. The short film that accompanies the installation has its own story: in response to inevitable insect extinction, a group of scientists developed a species of electronic crickets so that even after they?re gone, crickets can continue to make music while we dream."

She masters graphic techniques, prints fires, mountains, horror fairy tales or a cow's bum on a satin maker, and has letterpress at home. In her library you will find countless diaries, she fills them with, among other things, revelations, her dreams, which she immortalizes with text and drawing

Dark Night of the Soul

12. 8. — 17. 10. 2021

Komensky Street No. 10
586 01 Jihlava
Curator : Nina Moravcová

Zbyněk Baladrán, Sarah Dubná, Jiří Franta and David Bőhm, Habima Fuchs, Anna Hulačová, Barbora Kleinhamplová, Jan Krtička, Jaroslav Kyša, Viktorie Langer, Tereza Severová

The exhibition Dark Night of the Soul presents the work of a group of visual artists, whose work is characterized by increased sensitivity to the current social situation. The exhibit tries to capture the ubiquitous feelings of anxiety, insecurity, and disorientation caused by frustration stemming from the inability to influence the reality of a collapsing world. Feelings that lead us to a state of helplessness and stagnation, which is, however, an integral part of a process that we are not yet able to see from a longer-term perspective. The name of the exhibition also refers to this state. It returns to the phrase that appeared in the sixteenth century in the literary work of the Spanish saint John of the Cross.

B PETRIFIED, tidal love

22. 7. — 19. 9. 2021

sound gallery IGLOO
Komensky Street No. 10
Jihlava
Curator: Miloš Vojtěchovský

The prophecy for the future is hidden in the substance - we need to listen, dwell deep inside in order to understand, to predict.Seemingly deaf darkness of the substance is potent with knowing.

The inspiration for the work is an enigmatic, radically poetic place — a fascinating modular stone configuration in the Pohorje primeval forest in Slovenia. Intimate cosmic dialogue evolves through several visits and blossomed in-between bodies ∞ spirits: space, atmosphere, river, stones, trees, ants, shadows, light, and a woman.
