Wouldn't It Be Fun to Pee in a Bun

Jiř Surůvka
September 11 - October 23, 2009

Hailing from Ostrava in the Czech Republic, Jiř? Surůvka joins SPACES for eight weeks as the 27th artist-in-residence to create new work in Northeast Ohio. Working amidst a post-industrial and post-socialist landscape, the artist creates sculpture, painting, and performance that offer irony, humor and an aggressive look at issues facing his community and the world at large.

Born in 1961 in Ostrava, Czechoslovakia (now the Czech Republic), Surůvka has taught philosophy, the Czech language, and new media at Ostrava University throughout his career as an artist and performer.
