The Prague sculptor Stanislav Kolíbal (*1925) is one of the most prominent post-WWII exponents of Czech art. Since the 1960s he has devoted himself to exploring the issues related to geometry as one of the foundation stones of European cultural and civilizational identity. The tension between abstract form and the existential significance of an artistic creation, and the issues of the permanence, stability and instability of sculptural forms, led to his works being included in an important exhibitions, first “ Between Man and Matter” in the Tokio Metropolitan Museum in 1970. The current exhibition concentrates on the "line - surface - space" domain, pointing out the individual differences in the approach to the space and the function of geometric principles in the work of Josef Hoffmann and Stanislav Kolíbal.
In cooperation with MAK Wien.
