The exhibition is still on till this Saturday.

Tereza Stehlíková’s From You to Me: 4 Generations of Women is an ongoing project exploring the unique and complex interconnections between four generations of women within the artist’s own family. 

Tereza’s collection of short experimental films, beginning in 2011, capture the unique moments of her grandmother, her mother, her daughter and herself reuniting between the Czech Republic and Britain over several years. Documentary-style dialogue is combined by Tereza with staged family rituals exploring the bonds between the women, while also uncovering issues of hidden family histories. 

Shown with Alchemy Film & Arts in an installation of six films, Tereza creates an entrance to the world of the four women, temporarily materialising memory through immersive projection and questioning the tangibility of memory itself.

The collection of 6 films:

Game of Rituals (2.53)
Chvalkov 2016 (2.42)
Between Jirina and Anna (4:43)
From You to Me (8.31)
Chvalkov 2017 (5.48)
Water Rituals (22.35)

With big thanks to Rachael Disbury, Richard Ashrowan and Walt Holland, as well as the whole team at Alchemy Film & Arts. 

And last but not least to Petra Stehlikova for her help!
