An … extensive set of realizations in landscape is represented by various types of actions, characterized by a distinctive mutability over the course of time. These activities and happenings react in some way upon the environment, either with the help of other materials, or merely by the physical presence of the actor. A substantial group of these works deal with the themes of travelling and eventually, wandering. Both of these themes were already being explored and documented by Miloš Šejn in the second half of the 60's, in his early works… Walking, with its motor characteristics, is the most elementary activity of a body possible in nature – it can be organized "from somewhere to somewhere", and we can understand this demarcation as a spatial sculpture sui generis. Wandering carries other meanings, mainly the aspect of its unintentional ness, but also the quality of the actor’s existential jeopardy, which is to say the solitary actor. That can be encompassed in a walk under extreme conditions and through difficult terrain…

PILGRIMS

Project pilgrims, refugees, hermits with the participation of nearly forty artists, loosely based on a cycle of three group exhibitions (Scripture in the visual arts, music in the visual arts and the Path of Light - myths, philosophy and spirituality in the visual arts), taking place in Cologne from 1995 to 2012 and shows that many artists are returning to the phenomenon of pilgrimage, often associated with an unprecedented perception of the beauty of the landscape and its sanctity and reflected in particular by various streams of philosophy, literature and the art of European Romanticism. Their relationship to the road, to the landscape, but also to the issues of social exclusion and loneliness, which often accompanies man on his journey, whether voluntary or forced, is very individual. The exhibition thus maps a heterogeneous range of artistic approaches and suggests that many of the exhibitors not only accepted the trends emerging from the second half of the 20th century within the European artistic context, but also created under the influence of their own experiences and practices.

While some forms of action and conceptual art approach the landscape as a place suitable for experimentation and realisation of ephemeral events, often used for ecological and social criticism, the personal diaries of some authors usually reflect deep inner experiences and harmony with nature. In addition to realistic recordings of specific events, historical or fictional characters, many artists work with abstracted abbreviations or symbols, objects and classical paintings, or photographs or manipulated images. Nature of some works to a certain extent determines also the authors own experience with emigration, or the inability to freely form their decision to leave and work in solitary seclusion outside the main artistic movements. 

The exhibition is a story about journeys in literal and devolved meaning, but also to a certain extent also comments on the consequences of the problems currently facing global mobility and consumerism, which in 1861 were captured by an American poet, philosopher, hermit and Pilgrim David Thoreau in his book Walking, expressing the view that people are moving away from nature and prefer comfort at all costs.
