Jan Jedlička
b. 1944 (Prague, CZ), lives and works in Zurich, CH

Jan Jedlička walks, roams, and circles an area of countryside in southern Tuscany. The geographic region of Maremma proves to be a sparsely settled, barren landscape, far removed from Italy’s tourist attractions. Following its network of waterways and the change of the seasons, Jedlicˇka inscribes himself on the landscape. “Il Cerchio” (2005/06), the series of photographs he made over the course of a year, also tells of the many attempts to cultivate this region, situated where the land and the sea meet.
