Franz Tišek


roof truss 18th century, floating letters

3 parts, each approx. 2 x 1m


Pieces of wood floating in the water are often observed in nature. The work of Franz Tišek deals with the changes in nature. The nature speaks to us in one word with or rather in an appeal: NOW. The urgency of the appeal is expressed by its brevity, which also refers to an SOS call for help.

It is reminded that it is high time to rethink how we deal with the nature and to take environmental protection measures. One of the letters resembles a floating open coffin. This reference is also a warning. The work symbolically expresses the end of civilization, if we do not change anything. Humans must learn to coexist with nature in a way, which can not be based on exploitation.
