My graduation work began with a longer stay in Temný Důl in the town of Horní Maršov. The town is in a part of the Giant Mountains not too much affected by tourism, in a deep and dark valley (Temný Důl = Dark Valley) where the sun shows its face only briefly every day. I am interested in observing human “nature” – the disturbance of unspoiled nature as contrasted with architecture and objects in a landscape possessing a dark and lonely atmosphere.
In the 1980s and even in the early 1990s, Artis Beta was a relatively widespread brand of skis among Czech downhill skiers. These skis, stuck into the snow in front of a snack bar or at the foot of a hill, lived together as Artis and Beta, as the right and left skis slicing their way down the slope. The title Artis Beta symbolises my long-term interest in the artistic (i.e., unnatural) rendering of objects in the landscape.
