SLOUGH is the title of an exhibition of Dorota Sadovská's photographs at the Nova Gallery at Baštová 2. The young artist captures what she calls the "mixture of human bodies" through five, large-format photographs and a 73-minute video that shows some of her other work, accompanied by the music of Martin Burlas. Those passing the gallery at night can see the video through the gallery's window. The exhibition runs from Tuesday to Sunday from 13:00 to 18:00 until April 2. Admission is free. Tel: 02/5443-3039.
