Sculpture Line
Olomouc

The next SCULPTURE LINE festival will again introduce you to sculptures and art objects of leading home and international artists in the "open air" gallery. Czech and Moravian streets, squares and other public spaces will decorate dozens of fine art works of famous and young artists from both, czech and from abroad.

The purpose of the exhibition is to enhance and enrich the public space, to offer a new look to cities and to the works of art, both for the inhabitants and for the visitors.

We invite you to the streets. Join the Line, enjoy the Line!

Torsion

Jörg Plickat *1954
bronze

Deinstalled.

The work consists of three simple bodies that are connected to each other in such a way that a dynamic upward movement from horizontal to vertical is created. A block, a cube and a section of a circle are sufficient to create the impression of movement. The slightly offset arrangement and the implied rotation in the vertical form the basis of the dynamics.

One of the big heads

Kurt Gebauer *1941
concrete

Big heads or other heads like lightbulbs are my long-term topic. A human head is a mysterious object, it can glow with ideas, goodness and can be blocked by stupidity and aggression. By looking at them we can reflect on who we are. I've been making the heads since 1970s. Four of them (2 metres high) were showed in 2011 on the Jan Palach square, in 2013 in front of the National Library of Technology and at Landscape Festival in Prague. In 2016, some of them were destroyed by drunks in České Budějovice. It's all in our heads.

Octopus

Viktor Paluš *1987
fiberglass

A sculpture of the Large Yellow Octopus was created for no particular reason, for the pure joy of nonsense, in spite of probability; for the belief that large yellow octopuses exist; if only because they should exist.

Avarice

Marc Moser *1968
steel

The origin of this artwork is an intuition. The sculpture reveals the polarities caused by a human being and his desire. It illustrates the dilemma and balancing act of conscious existence. Enlarged and modified hand tools interfere with common perception and create symbols for transition from an industrial to digital era. Avarice is a critical review of the greed of our commercial being.
