We can read the exhibition title, VOLUME, on two levels – in the sense of the loudness intensity, as we know it from any sound device button, and therefore as a reference to the sphere of sound in general. But it also means “capacity” – a term antithetical to the former, referring to the material existence of bodies in space. This ambiguity is the essence of our display, mapping the relationship between sound and art. We showcase three-dimensional works, paintings, concepts, and videos.

Level IV

Dive-in -

In EPO1 you can see a site-specific installation by sculptor Veronika Psotková. The floating figures made of rabbit net are typical for the artist's work, but in the "tunnel" of the former power plant they appear in a completely different light and atmosphere.

Exterior exposure


Matěj Olmer, Michal Škapa and Petr Königsmark show themselves in their clearly recognizable positions in the EPO1 area. Quite naturally, they bring contemporary art to the exterior, outside the gallery walls, where they present visitors with their original and individual vision framed by the distinctive, bold brickwork of the former First Republic power plant.

Project ArtPoint

There is a reconstructed chapel of St. Joseph in the village of Slavětín, about 15 minutes from the EPO1 gallery. The dilapidated building was bought by the Kasper family, redesigned beyond recognition and now linked to the EPO1 gallery with regard to its interior and exterior design and furnishings.
