Vojtech Mica (b. 1966, Prague)
My work consists of parallel, seemingly disparate lines, which collide one with another and complement each other. Despite first sight, everything faces the certain defining of my sculpture form. I compose the space and the space forms me, myself. The seeming serenity of one form is the exact print of the Dionysian pole of another form. The viewer himself is forced to find a relation to the presented shape-realization, as I myself must find. I see things clearly only after I have articulated them.
I use ordinary materials, not special in any way, clearly categorized from our everyday point of view. I touch them, form them, and insert them into clear and common relations, proportions, stories which turn grey as soon as I leave them. Indolent communicators, objects waiting to be touched.
