This publication, produced to accompany an exhibition held at the House of Art (Dům umění) in Ostrava, offers a structural account of the ideas and works of this important post-conceptual artist. Petr Lysáček’s formal approach spans a range of different media. His free mixing of media enables him to achieve creative freedom and above all to capture the multi-layered, complex nature of the contemporary world. His use of waste materials, visual repulsiveness and explosive expressivity provoke the viewer and stimulate thought. The publication includes a number of interesting texts by figures such as Jiří Surůvka and František Kowolowski, presenting their own distinctively personal views of Lysáček’s work. A letter written by Lysáček to the exhibition curator (František Kowolowski) provides a rich source of insight, revealing the artist’s thought processes and his inspirations while planning the exhibition.
