Sculpture Line
Liberec 2019

Over the last few years, plenty of buildings representing modern architecture have been built in Liberec. Further construction of new buildings continues at a rapid pace, and thus we will be able to encounter unconventional architecture in the streets of Liberec even in the future.

Acting in the public space, sculptures and solitaires can enhance and enrich the place and offer new views of Liberec as well as the works of art, both to the inhabitants and visitors of the city. Come and walk round Liberec in the footsteps of the Sculpture Line. Set off through the “sculptural line” and enjoy this unique exhibition in Liberec and elsewhere.

Tomáš Medek *1969

Tomáš Medek has been intensively engaged in 3D technologies over the last ten years, such as FDM Rapid Prototyping and 3D Digitization and Measurement. In other words, 3D spatial technology and 3D scanning, which enable him to create the most complex structural objects that are virtually unrealizable without these methods. The resulting works are mostly made of composite material or ABS plastic. The central theme of his present work is organic structures. The artist’s inspiration is nature, natural processes and laws, the biological structure of life and the constructive elements in the construction of organisms. Objects are multiplied, interconnected,
deformed and transformed into organic structures in search for bonds, connections and tensions. They look into the interior and uncover inner worlds, views and intersections. He gradually creates a cycle of objects that carries the working name of Fruit. Some implementations are cast into bronze (see the Capsule), although due to their complexity, their casting is a very demanding process requiring specialized technology. This creates unique and formally diverse artistic objects with perfect craftsmanship and a sophisticated concept.
