The exhibition Mirrors of Zlín celebrates 700 years of history of Zlín in Czechia with a series of multimedia installations in the local castle park. The artistic installations were envisioned and realized by the design team Loom on the Moon.
The first of the three installations presents the writer Pavel Kosatík’s unique perspective on the city and its surroundings, complemented by various illustrations. The result is an intergenerational dialogue between text and image, sometimes in harmony, sometimes in opposition.
The exhibition also features an immersive film, which is an audiovisual experience that allows visitors to relive moments from Zlín’s past at different times, such as during a town fire or the arrival of the railroad. This is a series of animations that treat each frame of the film as an independent painting.
The final permanent installation is called Mirrors of Zlín—a lyrical constellation of fluid forms poetically arranged under the most beautiful trees in Zlín Park. The lawn is dotted with a cluster of mirrors reminiscent of puddles of water, within which the canopy of trees, the swirling sky, and curious visitors take center stage. At the heart of the installation is a sequence of musical compositions celebrating the cycle of time, the change of seasons, the lengthening and shortening of days, the equinoxes, and solstices.
The musical compositions are based on recordings of seventeen bell towers around Zlín, with different bells chiming in the park for each month of the year. The sounds are accompanied by playful, moving lights, making the Zlín Mirrors an unrepeatable work of art that can only exist in this place at this time.
