about the exhibition ABANDONED DWELLINGS:
A participant in the unoficcial art scene since the late 1970s, Suška is an organisator of exhibitions, a member of the Tvrdohlavi group, and founder of the art theatre collective Kolotoc and Sculpture Studio Bubec.
His early figuratively-expressed wooden, stone or clay works in the postmodern spirit reference almost archetypal symbols and natural shapes in a form of bizzare portrayal and embodiment. In the recent past, the sculptor’s main interest has emphasized geometric structure in the form of an ornament, net or relief. His permanent themes include working with the inner and outer space of the sculpture, mass and delicacy, and the interaction of sculpture with light. Since his scholarship residency in Vermont, USA in 2005, Suska’s primary material has been steel – he enjoys finding abandoned steel objects and transforming them into sculptures by cutting out networks of ornamentation. Working with light, inner and outer space, texture of the sculpture and the monumentality and delicacy of motifs are all important in his works.
