Largely furtively, he had been taking pictures of women of every age and build in his Czech hometown of Kyjov since the 1960s. He took pictures with, among other things, cameras he built himself and, by manipulating the images, endowed his photographs with a distinctive aesthetic visual language.
His hitherto virtually unknown works appeared on the art horizon like a comet at the Biennale in Seville in 2004. Despite his sudden fame, he did not give up his withdrawn life and tried to resist being appropriated by the art world.
After systematically researching the person Tichý Zephyr is now presenting the latest findings about the photographer’s life and work in the exhibition and comprehensive companion publication. Based on verified sources and accounts from independent eyewitnesses to events, they cast a completely new light on the life of the artist who died in 2011. Through meetings and interviews with Tichý’s friends and contemporaries completely new insights surfaced, not only into Miroslav Tichý’s life but also into his reception in art history and his aesthetic impact. The exhibition and the catalog essays are retelling his life anew in relevant sections. Behind the elusive mystery Tichý, we discovered an intelligent, cultured and freedom-loving artist who radically tried to resist every form of cooption.
