Exhibition: Vladimír Škoda: Harmonices Mundi / Johannes Kepler
Artist: Vladimír Škoda
Venue: Prague City Gallery, Troja Château
Dates: Until November 11th, 2018
This carefully curated project in the enchanting interiors of Troja Château offers an important insight into the work of Vladimír Škoda. Although he lives and works in France, this Czech sculptor never forgot his homeland and the places that inspired him as for example the house By French Crown (U Francouzské koruny), where the mathematician and astrologist Johannes Kepler once worked. Kepler’s work Harmonices Mundi is reflected in the objects from metal, bronze and steel resembling the solar system. More works by Vladimír Škoda can also be found in the Kampa Museum in the center of Prague.
Exhibition: Sempé – Little Nicholas and Other …

Usually devoid of words, Sempés comics are created with the utmost diligence, yet feel like the result of a spontaneous moment. Great exhibition for a fun and easy afternoon.
