„My father is an amateur photographer and he took me to the darkroom early in my childhood. Since then I am really interested in the classic technique. I usually work with films and other classic photographic material. Also I start work with 16mm medium. In a first time was only projection of an old movies. With colleague we room three-way projection performance.“
Jáchym´s movie vision is also often strongly reflected in his photo series.

The title of this exhibition project – “Medium Loci” is a combination of words medium and genius loci. We use it this way to point out the fact that place or region itself, through it’s genuine qualities can represent visual medium.
We have decided to deny the general concept of transporting the same artworks around several art venues and showing them over and over. Instead, we prepare the entire show specifically for the selected location. We visit it in advance so we can react in our personal way. Exhibition usually consists of photographs, video installations and figurative reactions to the gallery space.
In each city, artists dig in local history,current political and cultural situation. This way, they often provide local people with new point of view, both socially and aesthetically.
