Information

Jan Tichy works at the intersection of art theory, video, sculpture, architecture and photography. His conceptual work is socially and politically engaged. For him, art is a form of communication, but also a way to mediate between past, present and future. Whether working with remains of the past such as architecture or focusing on the absence of historical documents and artworks. In his artistic practice Tichy raises questions that are concerned with the influence of the environment and history on one’s working methods and perception, thereby creating a room of artistic and methodological self-reflection.
