Miroslav Tichý is the eleventh exhibition held in the ex-kindergarten of Bruzella, home of the Rolla Foundation. The works are from the private collection of Rosella and Philip Rolla that on this occasion presents 40 photographs and 5 works on paper.
Miroslav Tich. (1926-2011, Kyjov, Czech Republic), between 1960 and 1985, using cameras made from found objects, cardboard, cans and other materials, shot thousands of photographs, predominately of women of his native town of Kyiov.
The photographs remained largely unknown until 2004 when the curator Harald Szeemann introduced him to the art world at the Biennial in Seville. In 2005 Tichy won the “ Rencontres d’Arles New Discovery Award “ and he had his first major retrospective exhibition at the Kunsthaus in Zurich followed by a second exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris in 2008. In February 2010, Tich. had a solo exhibition at the International Center of Photography (ICP) in New York City. Many others have followed.
The catalog text is by Francesco Zanot curator of CAMERA - Centro Italiano per la Fotografia, Turin, Italy.
