In the autumn of 2017 Arthouse Hejtmánek presented an exploration of the work of sculptor Milan Beránek (*1936), who created all of his art outside of his primary profession. Beránek’s sculptures, colored objects and wooden assemblages could have ended in a dumpster, but literally at the last minute, shortly before the artist moved out of his apartment, Tomáš Hejtmánek rescued his work. Accompanied by the artist’s poems, period photographs, and a new documentary, the work of this unique and exceptionally creative artist was made its public debut.
“Milan Beránek created many first-rate works that were often ironic about the one-party state, so it would have been a real shame if he and his work would have fallen into oblivion. My objective is to not only present his oeuvre in a dignified manner, but to also get him accepted among collectors and included in galleries,” Tomáš Hejtmánek says.
