Work in progres on installation "Subtile" in Slovanský dům garden
"Subtile" is an installation by the Czech artist of Argentine origin, Federico Díaz. A myriad of tiny silver surfaces reflecting and at the same time absorbing the garden area of Slovanský dům. This artwork, reminiscent of a bird's nest, creates ripples going through time and space, a kind of rupture in the environment. All those various reflections overwhelm one’s vision, piercing through human senses and creating a sensation of an error, of something unexpected. While at first sight disturbing, eventually it evolves into an ability to stop our quotidian hectic routine, offering a moment for contemplating our conventional way of perception.
