Exhibition Practice of Solitude combines the work of two environments and two authors in a mutual space. The first environment consists only of the memories of the Western Fjords of Iceland, where Lucia Gašparovičová spent one month during the winter this year. The second place represents Košice, where Lucia was creating together with partner and artist Ján Skaličan during two summer months at the residency programme K.A.I.R. Košice Artist in Residence. Practice of Solitude is not an objective representation of reality.
