Venue's website

The creations of Danish visual artist Kirstine Roepstorff and Czech visual artist Matyáš Chochola. The Danish representative in the Venice Biennale and the laureate of the Jindřich Chalupecký Award meet to present both their recent and older works, paintings, collages, statues and installations that create a symbolical, in shades of darkness rendered landscape that is allegorically produced to narrate mythical stories and to evoke a contemplative, at the same time magnificently spiritual and powerful mood.

The works of both authors are connected by their experimental philosophical interpretations of human existence. They represent the basic pillars of cultural and spiritual essence of the mind that are stored in our subconscious, defining and predetermining our ability to grasp the situation and orientate ourselves in the environment. The works on display evoke their own archetypes that should be comprehensible to the viewer even in the absence of a particular cultural association. The name of the exhibition itself is, exactly as in Shakespeare plays, a reference to the concept of historical truth that is subject to interpretation and changes with time.
