Permanent line

01

Bobsled run Prague

Prosecká 906/34b, Praha 9 — 50.11424, 14.48906

Legbob

Štěpán Šefr *1983
concrete, iron

A statue, running or speeding off, is a symbol of the premises on which it is located. A fragment of the bobsled is transferred into a surreal level where it is carried to the intended destination (the track?) by two pairs of legs.

02

Pavilon B.Braun Dialog

Budínova 2464/2b, Praha 8 — 50.11571, 14.46520

Sofa

Alexandra Koláčková *1964
high - fired clay

Coloured glazed ceramics on a reinforced concrete shell. A utility ceramic sofa with organic shapes brings playfulness and optimism into a given public space. In the busy street full of hustle and bustle, the sculpture gives an impression of an island of peace and good cheer, a place where you can “recharge your batteries” with a brief rest.

03

Dolní Břežany

Náměstí na Sádkách, Dolní Břežany — 49.96467, 14.45286

Corpus Angelicus

Stefan Milkov *1955
cast iron

“I created the sculpture called “Corpus Angelicus“ as a part of an exhibition of the same name which I had at Prague Castle in 1997. An angel is a constant theme for me, this mysterious being is actually present in all religions. It is a sort of a positive, ecumenical symbol and I am enticed to shape it and give it various forms and constantly retransform it. An angel has probably never been seen before but we may believe that it exists in some form and this always stirs my imagination. That is why “Corpus Angelicus“, a sculpture made of robust cast steel, in contrast to the notion of a totally unknown and elusive ethereal being. A sort of shell of the Angel, it can be understood like this. But I leave it to the viewer. I am glad that the object be installed in Břežany near the monastery and I hope that it will give joy to the citizens and maybe also a reason to pause and think.”

Dolní Břežany

Náměstí Na Sádkách, Dolní Břežany — 49.96467, 14.45859

Armchair

Alexandra Koláčková *1964
high - fired clay

Coloured glazed ceramics on a reinforced concrete shell. This is a new approach to street furniture. An unconventionally conceived utility sculpture is an inspiration for both architects and city councillors. A ceramic chair does not look dull and it is not a serial product, either. Thanks to its rounded shapes it is playful and original, and rightfully attracts the attention of passers-by.

Dolní Břežany

Pražská 636, Dolní Břežany — 49.96341, 14.45851

Hyena

Jan Dostál *1992
steel

The author focused on the space and size of the object in space. A scale chosen for Hyena allows the viewer to perceive the object as a whole, and, at the same time, at a closer look the viewer is forced
to perceive individual segments and parts of the sculpture. Its openness offers insight into the interior
of the object. The sculpture tries to capture the ferocity of hyenas as accurately as possible with metal. An organic form of a living hyena is transferred into a geometric form of the sculpture while enlarging the animal’s proportions. Complex structures that create individual parts of the animal’s body are gradually composed of the 2D parts. The resulting sculpture takes advantage of the distribution of light and shade on metal surfaces, and using its nuances it creates the overall spatial volume.

InterCora, Rondel

Lochotínská 1108/18, Plzeň 1 — 49.75288, 13.37751

Sofa

Coloured glazed ceramics on a reinforced concrete shell. A utility ceramic sofa with organic shapes brings playfulness and optimism into a given public space. In the busy street full of hustle and bustle, the sculpture gives an impression of an island of peace and good cheer, a place where you can “recharge your batteries” with a brief rest.

Chválkovice

Chválkovice, Olomouc

Avarice

Marc Moser *1968
steel

The origin of this artwork is an intuition. The sculpture reveals the polarities caused by a human being and his desire. It illustrates the dilemma and balancing act of conscious existence. Enlarged and modified hand tools interfere with common perception and create symbols for transition from an industrial to digital era. Avarice is a critical review of the greed of our commercial being.
