Sculpture Line
Olomouc 2019

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. 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!

Foot

Lukáš Rais *1975
metal

The metal sculpture of Noha (Foot) is typical of the author’s work, combining the fascination with industrial poetics with the rational perception of the outer world. The shape and rhythm of the sculpture leads one to reflect on the essence of the construction of the world, but also to taking a seat or crawling. It may seem confusing, but according to the author, both approaches lead (albeit zigzagged and shyly, however determined) to the same goal. To what precisely, the author leaves open to the individual mind of every observer, sitter, reliever, refiner, etc.

Euphoria

Veronika Kudláčková Psotková *1981
woven wire mash

„Euphoria“ is a gentle symbol of the closest connection between a woman and a child (between me
and my daughters) as well as the symbol of being on the same wavelength of shared well-being. It is
a capture of a brief, passing, but intense learning of new life. It is displayed using a visual and sculpturespecific airy form of spatial drawing.

One of the big head

Kurt Gebauer *1941
concrete

Big heads or other heads like lightbulbs are my long-term topic. A human head is a mysterious object, it can glow with ideas, goodness and can be blocked by stupidity and aggression. By looking at them we can reflect on who we are. I've been making the heads since 1970s. Four of them (2 metres high) were showed in 2011 on the Jan Palach square, in 2013 in front of the National Library of Technology and at Landscape Festival in Prague. In 2016, some of them were destroyed by drunks in České Budějovice. Now one of them is right here. New Town Hall is famous for defenestration of the town councilors in 1419. Let's hope that nothing like that will happen again. It's all in our heads.

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.
