Jaroslav Kyša: All Those Things We Never Thought Would End

We cordially invite you to the opening of the Jaroslav Kyša exhibition in ZAHORIAN & VAN ESPEN gallery in Bratislava


ZAHORIAN & VAN ESPEN Bratislava, Mierová 7, 82105 Bratislava



Opening on Friday 30 Sep, 6 - 8 pm



When Aristotle, writing in the distant past, proposed his definition of time, it was naturally a definition bound up with ourselves, the human beings. The principal motif was changeability: his time was played out in our sense experience, and its lead actor was change. But did this time exist also before Aristotle? How and where is a deep time revealed, which goes beyond the short-lived flash of the history of humanity? How to imagine the enormous depth of geological time without observable change?

Jaroslav Kyša in a solo exhibition entitled All Those Things We Never Thought Would End in Zahorian & Van Espen Gallery, offers a representative view of his current work, whose beginnings go back to the pandemic summer of 2020. Poetically, and at the same time coolly, he offers a visual essay thematically following on from his previous exhibition projects (I Was Keeping It All Safe for You, Zahorian & Van Espen Gallery, 2019; Order of Waves, Synagogue - Centre of Contemporary Art, 2021, Breathe Deeper, Should You Need to Come Back, VUNU gallery, 2022)./ Erik Vilím, curator
