Karel Srp, Mariana Serranová, Krištof Kintera
He puts all the pieces and their parts together as his own personal heritage that he has been storing in you through your thoughts. The list of knowledge, actions, words, feelings. „I am asking you...“, he says in every piece. (Petr Borkovec, from an unpublished poem dedicated to Krištof Kintera)
Krištof Kintera (1973) is known as an artist, a curator and a member of the group Hidden Creative Unit. His ability to respond to topical problems is of primary importance in his work; pieces like Plumbuman, Talkmen, Appliances and a recent reflection on suicide Of One’s Own Volition – Memento Mori are some of his most typical works. The persuasiveness and insistence of Kintera’s work comes out of his never-ending dialogue with every day life, in a constant search for the relationship between the obvious and the hidden, detecting the absurd in seemingly banal situations. The monograph, introduced by a study by Karel Srp and accompanied with an interview by Mariana Serranová with the artist, summarizes Kintera’s work from the mid-1990s to the present, it presents the wide range of the artist‘s activity, from interventions in the public space to a continual reflection on the media of sculpture.
The book contains a biography and a list of solo and group exhibitions. The book has been produced in a bilingual Czech and English edition.
