Silver

The VJEMY studio has prepared an exhibition entitled Silver for the WHITEBOX space. The exhibition takes its inspiration from the illustrious history of Kutná Hora that is closely associated with silver mining.
In a darkened room, snow-white porcelain bowls are arranged in symmetrical rows. Flickering light creates a jumble of reflections on the walls and contrasts with the strict geometry of the bowls. Two mirrors placed opposite each create the illusion of infinite space – a metaphor for the mine shaft. The mirrors, which tilt at regular intervals and thus change the perspective of this ‘infinity’, cause a sense of unease and tension. Similar feelings of anxiety and stress were experienced by miners working in the mine shafts, where many also perished.A limited edition of metal-plated salad bowls specially produced toaccompany the exhibition.
