Jiří Šigut (* 1960)

 

In den Jahren von 1985 bis 1991 hielt Jiří Šigut alltägliche Aktivitäten wie Bus-, Bahn- und Aufzugfahrten oder Spaziergänge auf einem einzigen Filmnegativ in einer permanenten Dauerbelichtung (mit offener Blende) fest - Notizen zur Umgebungstemperatur und zu Hintergrundgeräuschen ergänzten die Arbeit.

 

Anfang der 90er Jahre erweiterte der Fotograf seine Aktivitäten in der freien Natur (Serie: Records ), wo das Tageslicht und das nächtliche Licht der Sterne, des Mondes, des Feuers oder der Glühwürmchen die Szenerie beleuchten und sich auf dem lichtempfindlichen Träger des Fotopapiers abzeichnen. Er selbst sagt: "Mich fasziniert die Tatsache, dass man mit Hilfe des Fotopapiers in der Zeit agieren und beobachten kann, wie es das Licht und die Energie der unmittelbaren Umgebung aufnimmt. Man kann Millionen Jahre alte Prozesse und natürliche Kräfteverhältnisse festhalten, die der erste Mensch wahrgenommen hat.

 

Der Fotohistoriker Josef Moucha zählt Jiří Šigut zu den zwanzig tschechischen Künstlern, die im 20. Jahrhundert die Möglichkeiten der künstlerischen Fotografie wesentlich erweitert haben. Er steht damit in einer Reihe mit Fotografen wie Josef Sudek, Frantisek Drtikol, Jaromir Funke, Jan Svoboda oder Josef Koudelka. Jiří Šigut lebt in Ostrava, Tschechische Republik.

Jiří Šigut (* 1960)

 

In the years from 1985 to 1991, Jiří Šigut  captured everyday activities such as bus, train and elevator rides or walks on a single film negative in a permanent continuous exposure (with an open aperture) - notes on the ambient temperature and background noise completed the work.

 

At the beginning of the 90s, the photographer expanded his activities in the great outdoors (series: Records ), where the daylight and the night light of the stars, moon, fire or fireflies illuminate the scenery and mark themselves on the light-sensitive carrier of the photographic paper. He himself says: "I am fascinated by the fact that with the help of photographic paper you can work in time and watch how it absorbs the light and energy of the immediate environment. You can record million-year processes and natural struggles that the first man perceived.

 

Photography historian Josef Moucha counts Jiří Šigut among the twenty Czech artists who significantly expanded the possibilities of artistic photography in the 20th century. He is thus in a row with photographers such as Josef Sudek, Frantisek Drtikol, Jaromir Funke, Jan Svoboda or Josef Koudelka. Jiří Šigut lives in Ostrava, Czech Republic.
