Šeinovy transformace Janáčkových nápěvků představují jeden z potenciálně možných způsobů nahlížení, čtení, interpretací a reinterpretací těchto svébytných dokumentů. Některé listy graficky zmnožují jednotlivé expresívní výrazy v řetězcích přepisů, kdy se písmo postupně ztrácí a znovuobjevuje v nových a nových variacích, původní zvukový impulz je rozvíjen v obrazových situacích, jež lze číst opět sluchově. Podoby řeči jsou tu znovu a jinak ohledávány někdy pomocí konfrontace psaného obrazotextu s kolážovanými útržky původních Janáčkových notací a textů, nebo též s obrazy podnětů, k nimž se některé původní nápěvky vztahují – jako oživené předměty (židle, dveře), petrifikované notace projevů živých bytostí (ptáci, lidé) či bytostí imaginárních a halucinativních – například čert. Výsledné transformace lze vnímat jako předmětné básně, jako expresívní obrazotext a také, nikoliv v poslední míře, jako svébytné partitury.
Odkazy ke konkrétním Janáčkovým nápěvkům jsou vždy přesně uvedeny, respektují současný systém jejich archivace a tak je v každém případě možné posoudit, jaký je konkrétní vztah mezi původním notačním záznamem a jazykově předmětným rozezněním v nových sonických obrazoprostorech. Možné partiturní způsoby nástrojových interpretací i čtení modů, směrových orientací, temp, času a ech jsou pak zcela volné.

MORAWA = river in the Moravian country from which it got its name...
SLOWNJK ČESKO–NĚMECKÝ JOSEFA JUNGMANA, Djl II. K–O.
W PRAZE, 1836

The base of name for „Morava“ belongs to the oldest original
European names for flows whose original meaning
was water, morass.
WIKIPEDIA

Right from the water spring
The body of waters bites downwardly there
Where it roots in the deepest subsoil and turns its multiple eyes Upward
Between grass and trees into the light
From where it was born.
Its being is becoming a shape
And its limbs growing through soil in the endless folds
Always open embrace for seeing, speaking, fingerprintings and tracks Of incoming
For touches the mouth of all beings on the water surface.
We are also bodies of water
Temporarily detached from this immensity.

So, is your mother a landscape or a face? … (Godard.) All faces envelop an unknown, unexplored landscape; all landscapes are populated by a loved or dreamed-of face, develop a face to come or already past. What face has not called upon the landscapes it amalgamed, sea and hill; what landscapehas not evoked the face that would have completed it, providing an unexpected complement for its lines and trails?

Miloš Šejn's solo performance installation is a part of the First International Art-Academic Project Towards The Image.
Curated by Graźyna Brylewska and Katarzyna Nowak

The construct of
"Towards The Image” remains a delicate reference to the title of Marcel Proust’s novel “Swann’s Way” as a metaphor of the fluid boundary between the present and the past.

So, is your mother a landscape or a face? … (Godard.) All faces envelop an unknown, unexplored landscape; all landscapes are populated by a loved or dreamed-of face, develop a face to come or already past.   Gilles Deleuze & Félix Guattari / A Thousand Plateaus

ORPHEVS
13.10. - 14.11.2012 | Galerie města Blanska, Czech Republic
curated by Václav Cílek & Olga Hořavová
www.galerie.blansko.cz

A solo exhibition of Milos Šejn is dedicated to the Underground, the Moravian Karst and Býčí skála Cave. It is consisted from a mix of various media, including of an intact work with the gallery space.



Miloš Šejn: The Býčí skála Cave 28th June 2011

Glaukon tells the story, which experienced warrior Er, that twelve days after his death revived and told what he saw on the other side:

„…they could see from above a line of light, straight as a column, extending right through the whole heaven and through the earth, in colour resembling the rainbow, only brighter and purer; another day's journey brought them to the place, and there, in the midst of the light, they saw the ends of the chains of heaven let down from above: for this light is the belt of heaven, and holds together the circle of the universe, like the under-girders of a trireme. From these ends is extended the spindle of Necessity, on which all the revolutions turn. The shaft and hook of this spindle are made of steel, and the whorl is made partly of steel and also partly of other materials. Now the whorl is in form like the whorl used on earth; and the description of it implied that there is one large hollow whorl which is quite scooped out, and into this is fitted another lesser one, and another, and another, and four others, making eight in all, like vessels which fit into one another; the whorls show their edges on the upper side, and on their lower side all together form one continuous whorl. This is pierced by the spindle, which is driven home through the centre of the eighth. The first and outermost whorl has the rim broadest, and the seven inner whorls are narrower, in the following proportions--the sixth is next to the first in size, the fourth next to the sixth; then comes the eighth; the seventh is fifth, the fifth is sixth, the third is seventh, last and eighth comes the second. The largest is spangled, and the seventh is brightest; the eighth coloured by the reflected light of the seventh; the second and fifth are in colour like one another, and yellower than the preceding; the third has the whitest light; the fourth is reddish; the sixth is in whiteness second. Now the whole spindle has the same motion; but, as the whole revolves in one direction, the seven inner circles move slowly in the other, and of these the swiftest is the eighth; next in swiftness are the seventh, sixth, and fifth, which move together; third in swiftness appeared to move according to the law of this reversed motion the fourth; the third appeared fourth and the second fifth. The spindle turns on the knees of Necessity; and on the upper surface of each circle is a siren, who goes round with them, hymning a single tone or note. The eight together form one harmony…“

Fire of Archives and Cabinets of Heart, photo: J. Štěpanovič


Opening performance by Frank van de Ven / 14th June 2012, photo: J.K.Čeliš

Text is as important in Miloš Šejn’s work as all the other media that can be called artistic, as Šejn is a visual artist; but his techniques include many activities – from ‘classic’ kinds like drawing, painting and photography to performance art that goes beyond the boundaries of shape, which is over and over again redefined by his work. Text appears in many forms. It might be part of a drawn message, inscribed in a picture in the page of an artist’s book or in a painting; it moulds itself into a bold or meticulous drawing and encryption, seeking a total grasp of reality, just like thorough, precise descriptions in the names of works or the commentaries on them. Besides photos and videos, these become a further or even the only imprint/record, as in the case of his body sculpture or other personal and intimate interactions with nature or public performances. As well as in drawings, artist’s books and other works of an interdisciplinary character, text takes on other forms in transcriptions/transformations of primary texts (created by ‘hand’), which are a continuation of work with the original written record, a reflection (reminiscence of a return) on authentic moments of creative activity in the natural environment as well as one of the ways of presenting his projects. Presentation of own work is also one of the functions of the collection of texts called Fire of Archives and Cabinets of Heart, which is the core of this publication.
This way of understanding the author’s work also constitutes a thought axis of the exhibition Archives and Cabinets in the Regional Gallery / Museum of European Art in Liberec.
 

Two parts of Milos Šejn's archives from fifties, sixties and seventies.


Cabinet of Tree of Identity
The horror and the beauty in the heart of a little child. What else to write here? An Art Deco sculpture of Harlequin’s demonic grimace, possibly important for the pre-war understanding of beauty, secret in North Bohemia and the infinite beauty of a kingfisher at a blue cove.
  Next to several of father’s blue bindings are hiding my uncle’s translations of Maharishi and Vivekananda, which he, Bohumír Šejn, read out at the meetings of friends in Hana Wichterová’s studio during the late 1950s and early 1960s. The writings are lying on a fragment of a bookcase, a favourite part of Brehm’s Life of Animals and a mysterious monography the History of Rosicrucian Society, whose pictorial tables soon became cardinal to me.
  There is also paper for series of drawings, a roll of birch bark, like a book, and a set of father’s bone folders.
Below, there are family relics: a Spiritualistic drawing by J. Kotzian called Solferino (17 September 1924), Josef Sudek’s photograph of Hana Wichterlová’s Black Head, and Wichterlová’s drawings of recommended yoga positions that she did for our family in 1957.
  Another childhood paper film roll, my first collected stones and my later seals of the Gorges from the 1980s.
Even lower are father’s jars of medicinal plants and one of my first archive boxes from the 1950s. Diaries, equipment, colour scales…

Cabinet of Physical Mysteries

Scales (on which, for long years, I weighed the ingredients of my photographic developer for three-step gradation), measures, carat tables of the prices of precious stones and several obsidian Upper-Paleolithic tools from a cave in Slovakia, whose name I have forgotten and that were given to me by Václav Cílek at our first meeting, some-time in the early 1990s. “I always carry a stone like this in my pocket”, he said to me then,“ so I can, everyday, feel deeply the touch of that world whose masterpieces we scarcely understand now.
  A condenser from a Magnitarus enlarger, which I used almost daily in my work during the 1980s. It also became part of a video installation at the international symposium FUNGUS in the Minorite Monastery in Plasy in 1994. Picture, sound, water architecture, a skeleton of the soul of my body and the physique of other bodies created an integral unity with the Moon of that evening.
  Relics of my chemical laboratory whose size increased dangerously in the 1960s.
  One of the reflector bulbs and a memory of its journeys to explosions of light.
  Corroded bottom of a copper pot the family used for everyday life activities – for me, not very practically, it meant something more mysterious. Boiling, steaming, changing colours, questions, misunderstanding, anticipation.

Cabinet of Creativity
Museum, collage, objects of study.
  Right at the top rests a body of a stone-transformed branch from a relatively recent time.
  Below, some natural material from my desk, as it developed during the years. And on the right is a measuring glass with a bottle of gold dust. Both very old, but used quite recently during the performance art show Golden Waters of Vltava at the piazzeta of the National Theatre in Prague, as part of Quadriennale’s scenography.
  Right at the bottom, again, there is a time mixture: one of the parts of my little muse-um from the early 1960s, together with a yellow-lichen-covered twig from the Kobyla quarry in Czech Karst (peeled of on the way with Frank van de Ven), and Swedish moss collected during my wonderings with SU-EN through northern taiga, around Haglund Skola’s studio.

Cabinet of Book Legacy
Books. Knowledge. My records from repeated journeys up the Javoří potok brook be-tween the peatbogs of Černá Hora and the valley of Úpa river in the Krkonoše mountains possess intimacy as well as universal monumentality. Also the memories of the past and the evanescent present. Words run and sometimes maybe grope at the future.
  A corpus lies on books of similar topics; two are a night-time transformation of historical books. At the top of Zebín, in the foothills of Krkonoše, I imagined the place into the texts of the Ovid’s Metamorphosis and Novalis’s Hymns to the Night.
  The whole installation is based on the found seismic records from the Mayrau lignite mine near Kladno, authorized as found books.
  Seba. One of the greatest collectors of his time. How to put in understanding and colourfulness of the present.
  At the back: Berounka / St. George, at the place of transformation of the rivers Mže, Radbuza and Úslava into a new name of a river, molten lead poured into the water on the location, gold-plated, 49˚45’50.52“ 13˚24’44.42“, 7. 7. 2002
  Miller’s dream book (19th centrury dream book in flour). It was also a prop for the film HYPNEROTOMACHIA MOLITORI / Miller’s Visions 2009.

METAMORPHOSEON
02.06.2012 - 02.06.2012 | Regional Gallery / Museum of European Art in Liberec
site-specific installation in a frame of the Night Museum, 11 - 12 p.m.

Into the transformations of images and sounds in the space above the stairs it is possible to climb and descend through the apotheosis of night.
It's a dream about the museum of the history and future of human memory of the world.
Become Moonrise with your left eye, become Sunset by your right eye.

Olive bath of stairs arch with the floral window to heaven
Is covered
By waves of leaves and the vegetative body
And
It is framed by strict labyrinths paths,
Color of middle of light transforming
They turn into the rainbow arc from black to black again
Shades of night
Are drawn through the paths of swirling fireflies
By Midsummer Night life
Body and stars


METAMORPHOSEON, sound video site-specific installation, duration of one hour, 02.06.2012


METAMORPHOSIS representing one-hour mixed video loop, projected on the stucco ceiling and vitrages of the stair hall in former Liebieg‘s Neo-Renaissance villa. The character of historic areas, realised by Gustav Sacher, which was graduated in the Munich Academy of Fine Arts, it will be moved by work of Miloš Šejn. It also augurs character of his forthcoming retrospective at the gallery in Liberec since 14th June – 2nd September 2012.

For over 15 years, Miloš Šejn, whose retrospective exhibition can be seen on the gallery’s ground floor, has been taking part in organizing the activities of Bohemiae Rosa. This company creates site specific art projects, which work with the Genius Loci of a place and are intended to make a specific place more extraordinary. One of the site specific projects was the video installation called Metamorphoseon / Metamorphoses, which took place in the Liberec Regional Gallery during the Museum Night of 2 June 2012.
   Metamorphoses is a one-hour loop of video collage projected at the stucco ceiling and stained glass of the staircase hall of this Neo-Renaissance villa, which was built for Johann Liebieg the younger. The staircase hall in which you find yourself is amongst the most representative parts of the whole villa. In its interior there are stucco decorations, wall reliefs with mythological motifs, a staircase railing rich in artistry and a stained glass skylight with plant motifs. The visitor will barely notice the grandeur of the space at the first glance, however, as most of the decor is placed outside the usual angle of view.
   This is why Miloš Šejn came up with a video installation that directs the viewer’s eyes towards the ceiling. The medium of film gives the Neo-Renaissance message of harmony between man and Nature a different form. The projection uses two parallel sequences – an outer one, which creates a ‘frame’, and an inner one, which fills the center of the shot. The outer sequence shows the movement of fireflies, while the inner uses views of many natural structures. A hologram full of energy unfolds in front of the viewer’s eyes, reminiscent of the perpetual whirl of microscopic particles. The dance of these particles, their incessant creation and destruction, their pulsation, simulates well the film of fireflies. In the main sequence, a human figure appears briefly as a reminder of the High Renaissance ideal of harmony between man and his unspoiled natural environment.
   The video installation heralded the unconventional character of the artist’s retrospective exhibition called Archives and Cabinets, which will be running at the Liberec Regional Gallery from 14 June until 2 September 2012.

curated by Jiří Machalický

Miloš Šejn gehört seit den Sechziger Jahren des vergangenen Jahrhunderts zu den markanten Persönlichkeiten der tschechischen konzeptuellen Kunst. Šejns Werk ist ein klares Beispiel für das Begreifen der Kunst als Reflexion der Natur. Er arbeitet dabei bereits im Grenzbereich zur „Land Art“. Ausgangspunkt seiner künstlerischen Arbeit ist die beinahe wissenschaftliche Untersuchung der Natur. Der tschechische Kunstprofessor sammelt und ordnet Mineralien, Pflanzen und Tiere nach wissenschaftlichen Kriterien, untersucht ihre Mikrostruktur. Zu seinen Naturbeobachtungen entstehen zahlreiche Notizen. Diese sinnliche, sachliche und schriftliche Annäherung an das Phänomen Natur findet Eingang in die künstlerische Arbeit. Neben Zeichnungen mit natürlichen Pigmenten wird Miloš Šejn eine Installation und eine Videoarbeit zeigen.

IMAGE / BODY / SOUND – ČASOPYSK
Milos Sejn & David Helán

Agosto Foundation

 
Miloš Šejn will christen his new two-disk edition of Obraz-tělo-zvuk/Image-Body-Sound, released by Guerilla Records on his 70th birthday. Included in the event will be the presentation of the new book Časopysk by David Helán, once a student of Šejn, who now also performs with him. In addition, ArtMap will bring us up to date on future creative encounters and performative dialogue.

Miloš Šejn works in the fields of visual art, performance and study of visual perception, and conducts workshops, such as Bohemiae Rosa. His artistic concept was formed in his youth when he undertook many trips into the wilderness as a reflection of an inner need to get closer to the secret of nature and observe the miracles that happen in it. From the beginning of the 1960s he took pictures, drew, collected and described his observations of nature during these wanderings. Currently he teaches privately mixed media and the relationship of nature and art as intrinsic needs of the mind, and focuses on immediate creative possibilities, based upon relations between historical humanised landscapes and intact nature. He consciously is working in the areas of expressive language among text, visual stroke, body movement, voice, and expansion into space.

The CD contains various field recordings, such as the “ambient symphony” Colorum Naturae Varietas, while the DVD includes 27 recordings of a wide range, including performances, documentary works, video art, dream visions, drawings, images of nature, and the like. Included is a comprehensive interview, which in shortened form, appeared in the Revolver Review no. 103/2016. In all, the collection comprises an unusual, uncensored probe into the soul of the versatile artist, who in his work goes “beyond the limits”.

David Helán takes up the conceptual tendencies of the latter half of the 20th century. His works are scattered broadly, including performance, video performance, action art, installation, photographic works, fine art and new media, and their fusion. His name is also linked with the artist David Hřivňacký, with whom he has staged various performances mostly in gallery spaces. It is a characteristic of Helán and Hřivňacký’s works to use dadaistic principles, spontaneous immediacy, experimentation and humor. Last year, the dual-language author’s dictionary titled Časopysk won the call at the annual pilot project Artist Book #1 v Meet Factory.

Organized by: ArtMap Book StoreAgosto FoundationGuerilla Records.

The event will take place at the Prague ArtMap bookstore in Vojtěšská 18 on Monday 27th November from 18:00.

Miloš Šejn: A Nightingale with a Flat Flight, Path in Translation

I record a moment of the nightingale’s living space. I have entered his house, his home. Reflections of vegetation, overhanging willows, and viburnums on the surface of the water say something of our, yes, perhaps our dialogue. I don’t know what the avian beings truly see and feel, but I am enraptured by the visual impression of this moment. When I wake up early in the morning, I lie on my bed and the branches from the garden stretch in from the window, clouds, the first rays of sun, and birdsong, it’s a perfect situation. Half asleep, loved ones and acquaintances approach, my consciousness is just as much between corporeality as between a dream and the consciousness of the house. I don’t know how the singing birds perceive this moment, and I know even less how long it has been since people have tried to capture this musical stream of speech in their own language – probably since time immemorial. Various languages and dialects hear something different each time. What follows are examples of translations of nightingales from the history of ornithology. And do we hear today at least some of a fragment of the nightingale’s building of a house?

Troublemakers: The Story of Land Art, 2015 / 68:00 – Set in the desolate desert spaces of the American southwest, the film unearths the history of land art during the tumultuous late 1960s and early 1970s. Troublemakers is ultimately a story of renegades and firebrands all willing to risk their future careers on radical change and experimentation-a marked contrast to the hyper-speculative contemporary art world of today. Featuring rare interviews with a veritable who's who of American Art of the twentieth century. – Vito Acconci, Carl Andre, Germano Celant, Paula Cooper, Walter de Maria, Virginia Dwan, Gianfranco Gorgoni, Michael Heizer, Nancy Holt, Dennis Oppenheim, Charles Ross, Pamela Sharp, Robert Smithson, Harald Szeemann, Lawrence Weiner

Homeostasis / 23:00 – Homeostasis is a film essay devoted to the morphology of the landscape under the Ore Mountains in the North Bohemian Region. The film is composed of material that was captured during the Frontiers of Solitude International Symposium held in autumn 2017. – Milos Vojtechovsky, Dominik Zizka, Vladimir Turner, Michal Kindernay

ECHOES, 1979 / 5:19 / Milos Sejn – A reflection of sunbeams on water surface, cast on a rock. The hallucinatory gazing at one place for a long time. Digital transfer of a Super8 colour film.
