Filipová’s monumental abstract sculpture features utopian architecture set into an imaginary metropolis. The latter is referred to by spiraling vertical arms that stretch into space, and a “base” inspired by the urban structure of big cities. The technological solution of the sculpture is also important, for the artist works with a rather untypical material, exploring and employing its interferential phenomena. She further highlights its physical qualities via screening and playing with light fraction, which connects the platform with the arms and thus unites the fictitious metropolitan system into a single whole.

Making of the sculpture was financially supported by: Roman Werner & MUDr. Tereza Dvořáková, projekt Weldcrew
