To Opatov

An art project in the public space of the Venice Biennale.

23 - 26 October 2019.


To Opatov sticker in the space between the US pavilion and the Israeli Pavilion, Giardini, Venice Biennale 2019


On a red-black sticker the name To Opatov and the four wind directions are written.

In Venice, To Opatov is on the sticker in the direction of NNO.

Viewed from Venice, this is the direction to Prague.

Opatov is the name of a suburb in Prague. I stick the stickers, in the NNO direction,

in the public space of the Venice Biennale.


The public at the Venice Art Biennale may wonder where Opatov is,

whether Opatov exists, whether it is the name of a small Siberian village;

also it would be the title of a new national anthem or possibly the title of a work of art

at the Biennale ....


Ideas, fictional stories and concrete images can alternate when you deal with To Opatov.
