The name of the exhibition paraphrases the famous Heraclitus‘ quote: „You cannot step into the same river twice“. This implicates the fact that everything flows and every recurrence of some action will be influenced by something (time, context, experience).

And one can drown just once…Lubomír Typlt is pretty sure that pictures should provoke, irritate, be loaded with some initiation energy and their viewers should be awaken by them from passive visual consummation. He puts focus on this interaction; a figure is a bearer of the current content, although it seems that the bearer keeps repeating. Yet one experiments with her/him (figure) in order to make her/him to use the contemporary language.

The exhibition showcases Typlt’s works from the last three years; which can be divided to the two topic areas- men and women world.These polarities are reflected differently – as one can clearly observe from their compositions or employed colours.
