„Locked in a Gothic tower, seven hundred miles east of the west.
A hat, black robe.
In the haze of the terrible heat, the colors are spilled.
The light penetrates into the dark room through glass and tears the chains framed with tears, a toy store in the gallery, pizza and a pool with a stone in a rope.”

– (curator Jakub Hošek about Anežka Hošková)
