Live Virtual Group Session: 12pm EDT May 12th 2021

Thank you to everyone who joined for this session!

For this session we gathered to observe the visual art piece “Swiss Made (Edition 2)” by Vaclac Pozarek, posted below.

Our prompt for this session was: “Write about seeking balance.”

Vaclac Pozarek is a Czech-born artist who has been living and working in Switzerland since the late 1960s. The richness and diversity of his body of work is evident in the various media he chooses to work with: primarily drawing and sculpture, but also collaging, photography, scenography and exhibition design, and book design. In his visual artwork and installations, Pozarek tries to find points of contact between art and everyday objects; ceaselessly querying the ways in which art is presented to us. His graphic work underlines his fascination with typography and architecture, calling to mind building plans and architectural façade embellishments. His research combines the principles of Constructivism, concrete art, and Minimalism; creating a unique synthesis of these distinctive movements.

More details on this session will be posted, so check back!
