Jan Šerých 2009, video, 6:39 min.
Video art is a lesser known but equally characteristic area of painter Jan Šerých’s artistic production. In both these areas, he works with a reduction of form by using the geometry of shapes, and with content that encodes an external message. Šerých works with signs as carriers of internal meaning with an often emotional subtext, by which he actualizes the minimalist and conceptual approaches of the 1960s and 1970s.
Paramnesia was first presented at Prague City Gallery’s exhibition spaces in Old Town Hall as part of the solo exhibition titled YES (2009). In 2017, the gallery acquired it for its photography and new media collection.
