The Yellow Book
This artist’s book is part of Jaro Varga‘s project of the same name, curated by Erich Weiss, which questions the universality of hegemonic knowledge through books and libraries. In parallel to his research at the Biblioteca Pública Arús, the Fundació Antoni Tàpies and the Museu Picasso de Barcelona, Jaro draws intuitively, activating a choreography of the mind. The book is composed of 70 automatic drawings, the originals of which are part of the exhibition installation in the gallery.

More about the artist
Jaro Varga is a Slovak visual artist and curator based in Prague, Czech Republic. He earned a master’s degree and doctorate from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, and also participated in student exchanges at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw and Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania in the USA. Jaro is fascinated by how until recently our knowledge of the universe has been expressed through writing – speculations, theories or theorems without a solid foundation in exact science and research. The subject of the universe and its exploration would seem to be a logical continuation of his interest in the principles of how the sum of our knowledge is created, including the continued failure or inability to discover how things “really are.”
