SILVA artis - part 2 - Třeboň
11.2. – 12.6.2022
We welcome you to the SILVA artis II exhibition, located in the Štěpánek Netolický house in Třeboň. This is the second exhibition presented, with the theme Northern Forest (Silva Nortica). In the autumn of 2021, 15 Czech artists exhibited their works in our museum in Schrems. As a continuation of this exchange, the Kunstmuseum Waldviertel has curated an exhibition, by Lower Austrian artists, presented in Třeboň. SILVA artis is a cross-border art project, as a homage to the common regional cultural space.
Over the course of time, the forest has held together what man once separated. However, the reality of the historical narrative does not suppress the joy of this natural landscape. Our longing for a view of paradise is immortal. The forest is, as such, a Garden of Eden on earth. We are lucky to live in the midst of such a forest.
The two exhibitions (in Třeboň and Schrems) are the commencement of a long-term expanded cooperation. This partnership will disseminate like roots and small trees, into a whole forest of developing cultural activities. The joint exhibitions are an orientation into the inner workings of our edict that the forest space affords us. Immersing the visitor in an atmosphere that enables the promotion of original thought and the unity of thinking and feeling again.
