Jan Svankmaier — the Alchemical Wedding | Eye Filmmuseum Amsterdam | Exhibition | 2018
Eye Filmmuseum presents the exhibition Jan Švankmajer – The Alchemical Wedding devoted to the work of Czech surrealist and master animator.
This is the first major retrospective of his bizarre and dark films and sculptures in the Netherlands. The exhibition at Eye features one big installation in which numerous short films by Švankmajer are screened amidst remarkable sculptures and ‘spirited’ images, together with three Wunderkammers filled with collages, tactile objects, sick maps and ‘medium’ drawings.
