Asphalt, epoxy, sneakers. “Everyone has their own gravitation that pulls them towards themselves. The body ceases to be important, and suddenly only shoes are left behind. This is an attempt to depict that which is invisible, because what's important is happening in the unseen. And it's also important to not forget the Little Prince.” Krištof Kintera is one of the most distinctive contemporary Czech artists. He works in various media, with the aspects of movement, interaction and social criticism reflecting the interconnection of visual art, performance and stage design. His kinetic works have become popular not only for their intricate mechanical design, but also for their playfulness and humor. Kintera is the artist behind two atypical monuments in Prague – “Of One's Own Volition” under Nusle Bridge, dedicated to suicide victims; and “Bike to Heaven,” dedicated to Jan Bouchal, the founder of Auto*Mat, and all cyclists killed in automobile accidents in Prague. A major Kintera exhibition was held at Prague City Gallery in 2012; his works have also been shown at the Tinguely Museum in Basel (2014) and Kunsthal in Rotterdam (2015). His largest exhibition to date, Nervous Trees, was held at Prague's Rudolfinum in the autumn of 2017.
