We are loving these floating humanoid statues being carried away on their umbrellas! It is an installation inside the EBC office center in Prague, by Czech artist Michal Trpák. Titled Slight Uncertainty, they hover over the heads of visitors to the European Business Center, however “uncertain” that business may be.
Each figurine is hung individually, suspended through a narrow space from the ceiling on down. The polyester shaped pieces are finished in a concrete color contrasting well with the brightly colored umbrellas. It would be so fun to stick an all-black Mary Poppins in among the mix …
We visited Michal’s website and you should too… It greets you with an animated little video of a sculptured scenario – it is not to be missed. A fantastic little claymation!
Michal has some wonderful other works on his site – we were also taken with - What Is Happiness? (below) I think seeing a giant fly sitting on the side of the neighbor’s building, might make me happy indeed.permalink.
