Sculpture Line
Olomouc 2018

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!

Two underwater war machines resting at the bottom. They are captured in a petrified moment of gentle gesture. Stylized submarines are personification of living creatures and their fleeting touch. Once armoured cases are becoming a sandstone sediment. The natural, industrial and human element is balanced.

Sharkfin

Jaroslav Chramosta *1978
orthoconcrete

Regarding the form and size, the primary inspiration for the installation emerged from Megalodon, a prehistoric shark. The author himself perceives the object as a shape archetype that can be found throughout the animal and plant world. Location in the pool induces stress and uncertainty (what is happening beneath the surface?), adding dynamics to the statue. Superficially clear shape takes on many forms, including the night one, and provokes the imagination of viewers passing by.

Octopus

Viktor Paluš *1987
fireclay

A sculpture of the Large Yellow Octopus was created for no particular reason, for the pure joy of nonsense, in spite of probability; for the belief that large yellow octopuses exist; if only because they should exist.
