This installation in the crypt of the Piarist Church of the Finding of the Holy Cross in Litomyšl is dedicated to the symbolism of water and light, attributes of life, which occupy a central place in the religious thought of the biblical tradition. It links the installation of the authors in the church with the space of the crypts. The open empty tomb indicates the resurrection. “Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen.” (L 24:5-6). The floor is covered with a water surface, which reflects the entire space. The central bridge allows entry to the place and also evokes a feeling of walking on water.

on Thursday 14 June at 7 PM
on Friday 15 June at 5:30 PM
on Saturday 16 June at 7 PM
