Miroslav Tichy


Today I’m not only posting a picture, here are some ligns on the most impressiv exhibition I’ve ever seen. This work is just extraordinary. I was trembling by the time I went out.

// If you’re in Paris this days, take a day off. //

Jusqu’au 22 septembre 2008. / Till September 22nd, 2008.

Le Centre pompidou présente pour la première fois en France l’oeuvre photographique de Miroslav Tichy, artiste tchèque hors norme, aujourd’hui agé de plaus de 80 ans. Son oeuvre récemment découverte, révèle le talent singulier d’un personnage marginal et monomane, vivant à rebours de la société, du système politique et des valeurs d l’ère communiste, en vigueur dans son pays entre 1948 et la fin des années 1980.

This is the first exhibition in France of the photogrphic work of the Czech artist Miroslav Tichy, now more than 80 years old. Only recently discovered, his work reveals the distinctive talent of a marginal and somewhat monomaniacal figure who steadfastly refused the social, political and personal values of the Communist period, from its beginning in 1948 ti its end in the late 1980’s.
