“The writing is apolitical, impractical, tamed and very introverted. We celebrate the 100th anniversary of autonomous Czechoslovakia in 2018. My text, written as a homage to this anniversary, is named The Conservative. The main character is a person looking into the flowing waves being left behind a ship. It’s a poetic text about the passing time, a monument to the hundred years and a reflection about their sense and meaning. I don’t delve into our common history, this text is a monument without the horseman, a monument to honor one hundred years, nothing else. It’s a record of the atmosphere of emptiness, atmosphere after celebration. Meaningful silence after a fight. At the end of everything, it seems like there’s … nothing.”
