Even heavy things fly, but only downward. This sculpture was thrown down from forty metres. Three times. Modeling was based on mathematical calculations and also evolved with every single fall. The amount of falls was not set, at first. From the basic geometric shapes I then chose the pyramid which can be deformed most easily.

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. Sculpture Line will cross the border of the metropolis and will lead to about ten cities throughout the country this year. From 13th June to 30th September, 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!
The rider is the fourth sculpture of the four-piece horse sculpture. It was created between 2010 and 2013. One cast with a smooth surface in a red polyester resin is in Kampa Museum, another one with the whole statue is in a private collection and is part of the golf areal near Brno. Bronze část with smooth surface is part of Kamenný dvůr area. I cast the Rider and the whole sculpture into peanut shells structure and also in the structure of walnut shells. The rider from the peanut shells is made also from bronze and this year will be exhibited on Liberec square.
