Is there a strong presence in the work of the four Central European sculptors "contemporaneity", or rather its re-formation - they deliberately turn to themes that resonate in the public debate. Robert Buček and Michał Staszczak are united by their interest in the second life of materials and objects of everyday use. They are particularly interested in the possibilities of recycling and reusing them. Matěj Frank and Paweł Czekański consistently turn to their natural environment, its problems and the ways in which their solutions have a retroactive effect on this environment. What unites them on the imaginative and material level is "combustion".
Their work is still essentially sculptural in the sense of working with space, material, sides of thinking about volume and composition. But it is also open to new technologies, material experiments or performances. The more or less obvious performativity of materials and processuality therefore play an essential role in the exhibition. The question it indirectly poses is - how, if at all, can the limits of sculptural thinking be established?
