Sculpture Line
Ostrava 2019

Statues of Original Sin, i.e. 3 apes looking up to the sky, revived the entrance to the Great World of Technology in Dolní Vítkovice, Ostrava. The impressive sculptures were the first production of this year's Sculpture Line festival and provoke great curiosity to visitors. The Big World of Technology is a modern science centre where on a daily basis; visitors enjoy favourite interactive exhibitions, science theatre, science shows, cinema or educational programs. We watched daily as giant statues also attracted visitors of the nearby Milan Dobeš Museum, which exhibits the works of world op-art and kinetic art masters. The statues will adorn the entrance to the Great World of Technology by the end of September.

Ape-man looking up into the sky symbolizes the springing up of ancient civilization; today, high civilization brings advanced material culture, yet the nature we live on is being damaged unceasingly. The perplexed eyesight and innocent face of ape-man reveals the desire to correct all of these faults and to step towards a brighter future. The title originates from my sense of social reality. I express my upset towards the deviated part in the ocean of civilization we live in with this series of works and appeal for more attention to beautiful things.
