New Town Hall
Alexandra Koláčková is a graduate of fine arts at the Faculty of Pedagogics in Olomouc. A characteristic feature of her work are especially colourful, large-format ceramic and concrete sculptures, intended for public spaces. However, in many projects the author expanded the range of visual effects to deal with the space itself, mingling an artistic approach with the work of a landscape designer. Her artistic concept is typical of expressive range of colours, simple and rounded morphology and an abiding sense of playful elements.
The first impulse of this realization was an intention to complement an intimate place of a private garden with seating with sculpture. A bench in the form of a stylized woman has been created and you can nestle down with a book in her arms or sit down face to face to a close person in a confidential conversation. By being placed in the public space, the statue has gained another meaning that is firmly embedded in my work: acting as an island to enliven the street that you usually just pass through, as an opportunity for a short stop enriched with unexpected aesthetic perception, and as a means of rest.
