The landscape record became a kind of map of my relationship to the place. Miloš Šejn

     If images are maps, they are created not only by observation, but also by touching and experiencing. Touch is tactile communication, we also use the word metaphorically, we touch things, objects, people, problems, questions, answers. In the exhibition, named somewhat mysteriously, we realize that art also functions as a new possibility for the spiritual contact of man with man, the creator with the viewer, for example through the landscape. In his work and in his life, Miloš Šejn is connected with the landscape, with experimental surveys and with the ancient mythical form of the country, which he passes through, searches, touches and experiences first-hand. Šejn is as much a painter as a performer with experience on the edge of body-art, body art tapping limits, body boundaries. The process of knowing nature takes place not only through the distant senses: sight and hearing, which we can use at a distance, but also through touch and walking. In this kind of knowledge of the natural world, we literally carry our skin to the market. We have to get in very close contact with what we want to know. We do not look through the glass of a microscope or binoculars, we use the surface of our body, fingers, palms, hands, cheeks, feet, real physicality. In this empiricism, art obviously goes much further than science, although the two paths are different ways and tools of human knowledge…
     The artist comes into direct contact with the natural order, with streams, hills, stones, water, light, clay, swamp, shrubs, plants, leaves, trees. Perceptions and experiences can be recorded through painting, sound recording, photography, video or language. It is written about Miloš Šejn that he canceled the easel for the painting, the canvas lost its frame, he works on the ground. More than brushes, he uses prints of wood, stems, fingers, the whole body, sprinkling and dripping, rubbing materials against each other… He also eliminated the difference between a record and a poem. Texts created during the creative process are both.
     The universe Í T H M N includes acoustics, captured sound and emitted sound. Part of the creative action is the flow of speech coming naturally, irrationally, the author records and rewrites it. It records the process of creation of a work, usually identical to the process of recognizing a specific place. Rediscovering speech to reconcile with what we see and what we can touch. The point is to get to the stage where the language becomes understandable again. Where does self-talk come from? In the mouth, in the brain, in touch? Or perhaps in the space between nature and man? With the camera on his forehead, the author intervenes with shadows, the camera on a tripod captures sounds, wind, jackdaws, water flow, noise, his own words. Letter soup and watering cans contrast with artificial audio and video recordings. As if we were to disassemble the watering cans and disperse to irrigate the land we can cover.
     An image is a record of an event, a map, a structure. The performative origin is revealed by GPS coordinates specifying the area where the image was created. The mysterious word Agara, the Celtic name of the river Ohře, is often repeated in the names of the canvases. For the Hallstatt and La Tène culture, it was a lunar river, agile and clear water full of salmon. Javorí potok can be located in the Giant Mountains. We walk through the garden in the Baroque landscape near Jičín. Šejn perceives the landscape as a primary reality, source, root or basis of creation. One of his major exhibitions was called Being a Landscape. Nature, an uncreated world, is not just a part, it is the source of our culture and our humanity.
     Miloš Šejn was born in Jablonec nad Nisou (1947), graduated from the Faculty of Arts of Charles University in Prague, and lives in Jičín. He led the studio of intermedia creation at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, and currently teaches at the Art Design Institute in Prague. In the 1970s and 1980s, he worked as an art historian at the Gallery of Modern Art in Hradec Králové. His free work touches on land art and conceptual art. He works with the obtained samples of pigments, plants and minerals as with the archive. At the same time, it is based on performance and understands the world and events in it as a process. He uses drawing, painting and new media in an experimental way. Among other things, Miloš Šejn is the founder of the international association Bohemiae Rosa, which researches the relationship between the human body and the historical landscape. His friendly collaboration with geologist Václav Cílek is significant. The exhibition is a parallel, an ongoing variation of the N M H T Í cycle, exhibited in the Artikle Gallery in Brno.
     Miloš Šejn is not unknown in Pardubice, he has participated in a number of exhibitions in the East Bohemian Gallery, including The Kuňka Phenomenon. He performed several times at Art Space NOV with his students David Helán and Ján Valík. Surprisingly, he presents himself here for the first time.
