Sculptor David Černý (*1967) graduated from the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague at the Studio of Kurt Gebauer and went on a study stay at the Whitney Independent Study Program in New York. He also went on an art residency of the Swiss government in Boswil and participated in PS1’s Artist-in-Residence program in New York. He is well-known for his monumental objects and installations in public space. His artworks are socially-critical, forceful and often very controversial. His sculptures usually have a political subtext and a very decided opinion, provoking and pushing the aesthetic limits of society. At the same time, his work is so distinctive and visible in the media that it maintains a long-lasting presence in public awareness. David Černý received the Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant and a special award at Courtray Biennale. In 2001, he founded Prague’s MeetFactory Center for Contemporary Art. He exhibited his work at Műcsarnok Kunsthalle Budapest, the Olympic Games in London and the Council of the European Union in Brussels.
