Sirague City : photographs
"The series Sirague City came from that. Sirague City was the capital city of his internal world. If you turn Paris backward, Prague forward, take out the P and share the R and A—voila!—you have Sirague, pronounced with three syllables rather than two. It doesn’t rhyme with Prague. It says a lot about my parents’ relationship, I think, that though my father invented it, my mother said he pronounced it wrong. Anyway, Vilem said that there were two cities he loved: Paris as a lover, and Prague as a mother, so Sirague City was created from the love in his exile’s heart.”--From website (https://www.bandwmag.com/articles/vilem-kriz-poet-in-exile).; Creative assemblages of objects and materials, photographed in sepia tone on silver-gelatin paper.
