David Černý is a Czech artist who recently made the world news because of his work Obscene Gesture, which my husband and I saw on a cruise down the Vltava river. We stumbled onto another one of his sculptures, the fascinating and delightful In Utero, on a walk around Prague one night.
The surface of the sculpture constantly changes, reflecting the time of day, the surrounding trees and even the night time traffic.
In Utero uncannily captures the roundness of a very pregnant female body even though there’s not a round shape in it.
Treat yourself to a look at Černý’s web site.
They’re suspended from wires and change direction with the breeze. They remind me of paper dolls although they are metal.
I don’t know who the artist is!!! If anyone can identify the artist, please let me know.
