Curator Eva Riebová

The exhibition Where Are the Lions? / Ubi sunt leones? looks into a phenomenon of human fascination for overcoming physical and psychological limits through adventures, extreme sports, and explorative expeditions. The title of the exhibition itself, being derived from the cartographic description of unexplored territories (Hic sunt leones) reminds us that it is easier today to climb the highest mountain of the Earth than to find an unexplored place on our planet.

The exhibition attempts to develop a story of artists-explorers from both historical and contemporary perspectives. It follows different motivations and objects of their fascinations. At the same time, the exhibition draws attention to the dilemma of today’s adventurers who want to satisfy their romantic lust for exploring new sites and being at the same time responsible for our ecosystem. The title of the show therefore can be also seen as a metaphoric question: where are today’s “lions” and their unknown territories?

The project connects international and Czech artists combining loaned artworks with works commissioned especially for the exhibition during the first half of 2020.

Artists: Filip Dvořák (CZ), Jiří Franta & David Böhm (CZ), Felix Kiessling (DE), Nataša Kokić (RS), Štefan Papčo (SK), Alexander Ponomarev (UA), Macarena Ruiz-Tagle (CL), Vladimír Turner (CZ)
