Magdalena Jetelová’s installation, prepared especially for the National Gallery in Prague, will transform the Small Hall of the Trade Fair Palace into an extended field providing insight into the artist’s thinking and working.
The Small Hall becomes an art site that can be reflexted from multiple sides. This installation entitled Touch of Time has been concieved as a dialogue with the architecture of the Trade Fair Palace and at the same time as a devastated landscape creating sense of instability and fragility of the global social situation. The landscape is a carrier of history which invisibly written on its surface. One who walks through this landscape experiences collective memory.
The installation extends into the adjacent exhibition space in mezanin of the Trade Fair Palace where the audience will have the unique opportunity to see Jetelova's selection of relevant works since 1980's.
