Krištof Kintera (*1973) graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague (Studios of Milan Knížák, Michael Bielický, Aleš Veselý and Jiří Landovský). He continued his studies at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. He went on scholarships at Ohio State University, US and Künstlerhaus Villa Waldberta in Feldafing, Germany. He creates technically challenging, refined yet humorous kinetic and light sculptures, installations and videos. He employs diverse materials, often recreating electrical appliances or other discarded or found machines and objects. He often addresses the nature of our current consumer society and creates fictional figures out of rejected materials. He raises comprehensible questions concerning social and political issues both to himself and to his viewers. He has also developed an original sense of humor which he incorporates in his drawings and collages through wordplay, playful use of materials and other humorous aspects. Krištof Kintera regularly presents his work at renowned European institutions (Kunsthalle Rotterdam and D+T Brussels among others). His exhibition Nervous Trees (2017) at Rudolfinum Gallery was one of Czech Republic’s most popular exhibitions in the past years.
