The works by Tomas Hlavina we usually connected, mostly on the basis of the author's own interpretation, with hermeneutic issues of meaning. But what is most important in my judgment is their formal refinement and ability to provide the viewer with a unique experience. The easiest way to them leads through a simple identifications - bench and mushrooms, a mailbox or a pigeon house, hangers, a ladder, a brain teaser.
