Main image Václav Havel by Jiří Sozanský

For almost thirty years now Jiří Sozanský never stopped disturbing the Czech art scene.

His unmistakable dynamic "handwriting" can create an illusion either of the clash of wrestling bodies or of the alarming silence of oppressive human fate. He goes back again and again to his central theme - people in extreme situations - in many forms and in a topical context: a warning against violence and its consequences, against the indifference to suffering in all its possible aspects.

He takes his viewers to most unexpected environments and irritates them with his frank statements, enhanced by the atmosphere of a given place and context. Sozanský´s exhibition at the American Center will be focused on his portraits of Václav Havel and Ivan Magor Jirous.
