Július Koller at Musée Rochechouart

An exhibition that opens at the Rochechouart Museum of Contemporary Art on March 1st will feature the work of Slovak artist Július Koller who died last year.
Koller saw the utopian possibilities inherent in art. In the '70s, he founded the UFO Gallery Ganek on the Ganek Peak of the Upper Tatras Mountains in Slovakia. Koller's gallery was inaccessible to reach, so the gallery became a fictive reality and a shared dream amongst artists. This intrigues me as the Tatras Mountains are where my ancestors come from, so this fabled area is my Avalon.
