Works ready to go to an upcoming group exhibition in Cologne aka old photos in new format and frames. Also, one colour image - YES, I don;t only shoot in black and white but my love for monochrome can be overcome only by such rare orchestration of colours like in this photograph taken at Bitov Castle in Czech Republic in 2012.

After one too many confusions with my website and because of my inability to keep updating it as often as I’d like to, I decided to redesign it today and make it more “standard” online portfolio.

I also added section “Editions” under which I will in future every now and then sell limited editions affordable hand prints for those who’s like to support my practice and can’t afford to buy the expensive gallery prints.

Rebecoming
The Other European Travellers
 
Flowers Gallery, London. 10 September-10 October 2014
Virgílio Ferreira, Henrik Malmström, Tereza Zelenkova and Lucy Levene
Curated by Tim Clark, 1000 Words1000 Words is delighted to announce a group exhibition featuring the four winners of the inaugural 1000 Words Award at Flowers Gallery, London this September.
Rebecoming brings together newly commissioned works from four artists Virgílio Ferreira, Henrik Malmström, Tereza Zelenkova and Lucy Levene. Focusing on migration patterns between 1950 and 1980 from southern to central and northern Europe, it depicts fragments of the lives, stories and environments of individuals who left their countries of birth to start a new life in new lands, principally due to economic reasons.
The works explore issues related to family, labour, mobility, boundary, cultural heritage and social expectation. They also connect to instances of courage, upheaval, opportunity, unfreedom, self-respect, heroism and the dream of returning ‘home’, not withdrawing exploitation and poverty; the ultimate capitalistic ethic. By offering personal visions of lived experience, Rebecoming examines the contradictory nature of how the stage for temporary migration in many cases became permanent.
Aninstallation by Tereza Zelenkova (b.1985, Czech Republic) comprises black and white photographs from two series’, Girls & Gloves and Stewartby inspired by John Berger’s 1975 seminal text The Seventh Man. Shot in the former London Brick factory in Bedford, England - a company that once recruited more than 7,500 men from villages in southern Italy to fill the least desirable and repetitive jobs during the post-war reconstruction boom - the images make visible bits of detritus strewn across the building’s crumbling interior.
Workers’ gloves and posters of women form Zelenkova’s topology, offering monuments to desperate optimism. Drawing on her signature surrealist impulse, these objects undergo metamorphosis and alongside portraits and images of a housing estate in the adjacent town Stewartby, become imbued with emotional encryptions that speak to isolation, powerlessness, homesickness, sexual frustration and desire. Central to her project lies an exploration of how, or whether, the dream of a suburban life abroad was ever realised.
