1979:1 — 2012:21: Jan Tichy Works with the MoCP CollectionJan Tichy (Czech, b. 1974) has been collaborating with the Museum of Contemporary Photography for a one-year period to create this museum-wide exhibition based on the museum’s collection of more than 12,000 images and objects.

Jan Tichy works at the intersection of video, sculpture, architecture, sound and photography; many of his works combine these elements. Using video projection as a time-based source of light, Tichy creates physical and psychic spaces in which he explores themes of concealment, obscurity, and the seen and unseen. Tichy’s use of photography in his work, tempered by his strictly formal and minimalist visual language, results in installations in which the narrative is open to interpretation.
