Sculptor Jiří Seifert (1932 – 1999)

Sculptor Jiří Seifert is a renowned figure of the Czech sculptural scene of the second half of the 20th century. He has taken part in several international symposiums, which he considered an important site of artistic dialogue. During the nineteen seventies he was forced to withdraw from public life and live in seclusion. This exhibition presents the author’s work in all materials: marble, sandstone, alabaster, wood and slate, and during all periods. It will concentrate on small intimate work and on large work, on the artist’s typical softness, permanence, movement and ancient fluting.
