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!

Throne

Antonín Kašpar *1954
Steel

This sculpture is the author's reminder of the thousand-year tradition of Christian culture in Europe and in our country.

The author uses his statue to remind us of what is so much needed today - the basic rules of interpersonal relations and decent behaviour of man towards man. All this is contained in the Ten Commandments.

The throne depicts the place that each of us has within us. A kind of imaginary pedestal on which we can place our ideas, desires, wishes, secret thoughts or even something we would like to say out loud or shout to the world, but we do not know how. Why a cross? The artist often uses this sign in his sculpture. As he says himself, in his conception it is not only a religious symbol, but he also understands it as a kind of basic point, which was created by intersecting two lines, as a representation of the expressions Ying and Yang, I - You, She - He, She - It, etc. This sculpture was created in 2016, and two years later the artist placed three relief inscriptions on it, three questioning sentences. This further pushed the possibilities of context and interpretation of the symbolism of this work. The sculptor leaves the understanding of these contexts to the perception and individuality of each of us.

Angels of the Seas

Michal Trpák *1982
Steel

Manta rays – noble majestic underwater creatures whose movement paradoxically resembles the flight of birds. Elegant dancers moving in the depths of indomitable oceans. Graceful curves intersecting one of the truly last wildernesses of the world. The world with which we are so interconnected and yet it is so remote from us and so unknown. And perhaps because of all these contrasts, fascinated by the robustness and fragility at the same time, I decided to expose this creature in a completely different environment, different perspective, in a completely different context. When walking beneath the angel wings, you can dream, unleash your imagination and get carried away to the ocean bottom or somewhere further away...

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.
