site-specific installation/ public intervention / Prague, Czech republic / 2’27 / 2012
In the autumn of 2012 a temporary group of artist friends created a visual intervention in the public space of Barrandovský Most bridge in Prague. During a swift nocturnal action they climbed onto an illuminated billboard by the bridge road and redirected its lamps to illuminate a nearby sculpture that until then had been overshadowed by this huge advertising space. The strong light source caused “Equillibrium”, a cast-concrete sculpture by sculptor Josef Klimeš from 1989, to make an almost theatrical appearance. The huge billboard, advertising a luxury off-road car, was plunged into darkness.
