Kryštof Hošek studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. He focuses mainly on figurative motifs in his sculptures, sculptures that push the boundaries of decadence, cartoons and pop-art, critically respond to contemporary social or political events. His handwriting reaches hyper-realistic forms. In this view, impressive visual objects are created. He exhibits on his own or in group exhibitions both domestically and abroad (for example, European Museum of Modern Art, Barcelona, 2013; Museo Maxxi, Rome, 2015). In addition to free creations, he occasionally devotes himself to other sculptural disciplines and outdoor and interior installations in various materials and techniques. He is represented in private and public collections. He lives and works in Prague.
Adam and Eve
This sculptural group is a symbolic reference to the origins of mankind, when man, using his conscious ability and reason, separated himself from the animal kingdom.
At the same time, this gift of reason became a fatal flaw in his make up; leading, as it has, to all the -isms, ideologies and religions that homo-sapiens made for himself.
In order to create all the rules that enable each individual to have a better life within his or her community, man became a victim of his own desires, his ego and his lust for power. Nowadays, even the concept of Truth has become relativised; the individual often cannot sort out the truth from lies. Unknowingly, the individual simply a walking tool. In other words, caught within the essence of Heidegger's ''Gestell'', living in a system that has taken his identity.
