Police

2012, Object, Shelf, Light Beacon, Text, 110H x 25W x 24D cms

"Police. In Czech the word means a shelf. In a few other languages it stands for protectors of public order. Literal application of this trans-linguistic confusion creates a joke that only a small part of the world population, that speaks Czech, will understand.

Police is my infantile-dadaistic tribute to awkwardness as one of the most important parts of human life. Awkwardness beautifully hits and shows us our limits and through that it gives us the chance to free ourselves from these bounds."
