Modern Art in the streets of Prague – the list of 10 favorite David Cerny’s sculptures

David Cerny, an internationally famous sculptor, born in the Czech Republic in 1967 this year celebrates his 50’s birthday.

Whole life, whole time David Cerny’s art is controversial, provocative and monumental. According to his sculptures that is the meaning of art itself. That is how Art should be. Meaning, this is what a modern artist should do; provoke, question, sublime… David Cerny is very politically and socially engaged through his art. He points, he criticizes and he laughs… He reveals art from museums and places it straight to society in the parks, streets, building facades….

The list of 10 the most impressive sculptures by David Cerny

1. Metamorphosis – the computer-driven sculpture of  Kafka.

Even though the Prague was quite friendly and welcoming to all kind of artist through the past, according to my impression visiting Prague for the first time, Prague-born writer Franz Kafka is the most inspiring figure for the modern artist.

There you can bump on the many Kafka’s monuments done by the various artists.

2. If you decide to pay a visit to Kafka’s Museum there you will find another David Cerny’s sculptures presenting two peeing guys. Simply named: Pee

Peeing guys – sculptures of couple guys peeing a fontina pool captured in the form of Czech Republic

3. Crawling Babies at Zizkov TV Tower – David Cerny, 1990.

Our city guide mentioned the Zizkov Tower frequently on our tour to stress out how monumental this sculpture is. We did not actually go there to see it closely but this is how it looks.

4. I love contemporary art’s opinioned disturbing social criticism and artist engagement in the moment. Perhaps, that is why the Floating finger -is one of my preferred David Cerny’s sculptures.

5.  This one is very shouting, also. Love it.   Named “Arses“.
Each visitor is able to climb a ladder and stick the head into the sculpture’s arse to see a video of two Czech politicians feeding each other slop to a soundtrack of “We are the Champions”

Therefore, these are some of David Cerny’s sculptures worth of finding and researching while in Prague.

6. Svaty Vaclav statue-representing St Wenceslas riding twisted, hence dead,  horse.

7. Embryo installation on the building, 1996

8. Car with legs,

9. Hanging Out, 1996 – an old man tiredly hanging from the top of the ruff holding with one hand

10. Nation to itself forever (Narod Sobe  Navzdy)
