Interview: moderated by Jan Trejbal

Thinking about the work is for Miloš Šejn, first and foremost, by blending concrete gestures. The trace of a line or color intertwines with a voice. Screams and mumbles come out of his body and movements that resonate with movements of vegetation, water, and cloud.


Empty image is in some way a piece of space that needs to be rebuilt to truly exist, just like the landscape.

Since the late 1960s, Miloš Šejn has been engaged in the capture of the physical processes of wandering. With film camera and camera he passed through the swamps of river Dyje, Giant Mountains and Czech Paradise. An important place for him was the Zebín hill near Jičín. Later he went to the volcanic regions of France, Iceland or Ireland. "As a child, I thought it was a great wander, just a few steps of a reed."

At the end of the eighties, Milos Šejn's work also began to work freely as a genre for video art, and at the beginning of the nineties he worked with the generation of sound as part of the electromagnetic information of the television picture.

For me, all nature is indeed. Even the microphones here on the table are part of the humanised landscape. Part of this unity is also our "be-space".

He has also sought his way to intermediality in intensive exploration of classical cinematographic works, inspired by the micro-dates of human body and environment relationships. For VIZITKA, project of the Czech radio Vltava, he chose Zdeněk Liška's music samples for Vláčil's Marketa Lazarova, but also the sound interaction of the Belgian dancer and choreographer Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker with the composition of Steve Reich.

Miloš Šejn 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 picture and space. Transformations of his artistic journey from childhood to the present have captured the monograph Being Landscape, issued in 2010.
