The catalog Silence, Torso, Presence, published on the occasion of Jiří Thýn’s eponymous exhibition held at the House of Photography (29 June to 3 October 2021) includes texts by exhibition curator Sandra Baborovská, photography theorist Mariana Serranová, and art historian Adam Mazur. Like the book, the exhibition Silence, Torso, Presence follows on Thýn’s earlier exhibition Archetypes, Space, Abstraction, held ten years ago at Prague City Gallery’s former spaces on the second floor of Old Town Hall. For that exhibition, Thýn found inspiration in the work of the Cubist sculptor Otto Gutfreund. With Silence, Torso, Presence, he has turned to a leading figure of the interwar avantgarde, Hana Wichterlová (1903–1990). The richly illustrated publication also looks at the exhibition Shape, Work, and Two Fat Bellies, held at the hunt kastner gallery, where Thýn explored the work of the sculptor Alina Szapocznikow.
