The next SCULPTURE LINE festival will again introduce you to sculptures and art objects of leading home and international artists in the "open air" gallery. Sculpture Line will cross the border of the metropolis and will lead to about ten cities throughout the country this year. From 13th June to 30th September, Czech and Moravian streets, squares and other public spaces will decorate dozens of fine art works of famous and young artists from both, czech and from abroad.

The purpose of the exhibition is to enhance and enrich the public space, to offer a new look to cities and to the works of art, both for the inhabitants and for the visitors.

We invite you to the streets. Join the Line, enjoy the Line!

Great Missionary

Great Missionary

Jaroslav Koléšek (*1974)

Třída Míru tř. Míru, Pardubice
The Great Missionary is an expressive encounter of natural, human and technical space. In terms of form, it is a sculptural and stylized body of a helicopter with a flagellate and vividly moving tail, symbolizing a bearer of information. The statue is a reference to missions, whether military or civil, about which we do not know yet whether they bring a threat or rescue. The sculpture is also a place of conflict and also a merge of principles representing the origin and end of life – the mutual interconnection. The active space of the sculpture is a land – target, as the ancient origin, into which a human being, bringing enlivening, settlement, but also disturbance, is implanted. The sculpture can symbolize the forces that transform the living space, which is achieved mainly by internal tension based on the use of parallels and contrasts between technical a nd organic morphology.
