The exhibition presents works by thirty authors from the Vysočina Regional Gallery in Jihlava collections and offers a new look at the sculpture collection. It presents portraits and figural sculptures in an attractive and lively spatial installation. The exhibits speak to the visitors thru comic bubbles, across time and space. Words of literary classics and contemporary poets flow through the exposition. Among them are lyrics of the poet Jan Spěváček, co-creator of this layer of the exhibition. Selected excerpts are sometimes directly related to the theme, author or object, at other times, by their playfulness, they expand the range of perceptions of the work.
