Accompanying exhibition Orangery Olomouc, 7. 9. – 7. 10. 2018
The exhibition Interior Sculptures
Jan Dostál, Jakub Flejšar, Michal Gabriel, Jaroslav Koléšek, Jan Kovářík, Tomáš Medek, Stefan Milkov and Lukáš Rais
At its start, the Sculpture Line project, whose fourth year will be held this summer in Prague as well as in many other Czech and Moravian towns, but not only there, will also be given a gallery look created by specific selection of artworks by a number of authors who are represented in this year's open air exhibition. Major sculptures are introduced in the Mánes Gallery in Prague, and thus a visitor can make an image of what the purpose of this generous sculpture exhibition is thanks to such concentrated presentation.
Authors of different generations, from middle-aged matadors to fresh sculptors, are presented there. However, the emphasis is placed on each artist’s authentic sculpture language of no matter whether it is an abstract or realistic way of depicting.
Therefore, in the Orangery, the audience can meet a wide range of artists whose art language is a diversely structured sculptural abstraction, as well as those who modify traditional figurative bases.
The first ones are Lukáš Rais, Tomáš Medek and Jan Kovařík, the latter are Jakub Flejšar, Michal Gabriel, Jaroslav Koléšek or Jan Dostál who oscillates between both positions. Faithful to his postmodern origins, Stefan Milkov, who often works with signs or symbols involved in the structure of his artwork, has his own distinctive position.
