IVAN PINKAVA DOUBLE BINDTELEGRAPH GALLERY
This catalogue has been published by the Telegraph Gallery in Olomouc on the occasion of the exhibition Ivan Pinkava: Double Bind, which took place from 24 September to 29 November 2020, with a print run of 350 copies.
The exhibition presents fifty photographs by Ivan Pinkava from the late 1980s to the
present, including both black and white figurative images typical of his earlier work and
non-figurative colour pictures from his recent period. Many of the photographs exhibited,
both the newer and the older ones, have not previously been presented.
“Double Bind is a new experience for me because for the first time, I am consciously
presenting the photographs in two lines, with the older pictures opposite the current ones.
They are puzzles for me and the pieces have a mutual dialogue, consciously contradicting
themselves or, conversely, creating a complementary whole to strengthen each other in a
new context,” added Ivan Pinkava.
