The versatile Libor Fára graduated from the Academy of Applied Arts in Prague in the studio of Emil Filla in the second half of the 1940s, developing his artistic opinion in the circle of the Prague Surrealists. Fára’s oeuvre is characteristic of a clearly defined polarity between improvisation and order, while inclining to magical Abstraction with a strong touch of aesthetics. The main fields of Fára’s interest were collages, assemblages and objects as well as photography. During the 1950s, Fára participated at various activities of artists, writers and theoreticians from the circle of Karel Teige. Even though his works, based on poetic construction were not created spontaneously, they recollect the production of the Fluxus movement. During the 1960s, Fára collaborated with the Prague theater Na Zábradlí for which he created many timeless stage designs and posters. Later he, however, withdrew from public life and ceased exhibiting; he rather focused on collages and large-dimensional assemblages composed of corroded metal sheets. Anna Fárová – a renowned art theoretician focusing on the field of photography – organized a large retrospective of her husband, Libor Fára, almost ten years after the artist’s death on the grounds of the Prague Castle. The exhibition was accompanied by an extensive monograph of Libor Fára, whose work is today part of many collections mainly on the territory of the Czech Republic.
