VOJTECH MICA‘s objects are massive and transcendent at the same time.
Complex and detailed phenomena and contexts he cites in simple, almost archaic forms.
In his objects you find elements from a classical aesthetic with reminiscences from ordinary and everyday contexts.
He masterfully employs all the techniques of his craft:
he works with granite, sandstone and marble as well as wood, synthetic resins and 3D printing, and also creates wonderful bronze sculptures.
But his favourite thing to work with is concrete.
Concrete is omnipresent in our time. It is strong, reliable and resistant.
Concrete may not be beautiful in the classical sense at first glance, but under the hand of Vojtěch Míča the rough material becomes a matrix for subtle, tender and sensitive thoughts. A thought among, which is more of a feeling, might be, as the artist puts it, “that behind all the existing back and forth and up and down, there could be a calm and clear order.”
VOJTĚCH MÍČA studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, Czech Republic and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe, Germany.
Since 2019 he works as associate professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague.
Various scholarships, sponsorship awards, group and solo exhibitions in galleries, art associations and museums have taken him to Australia (2022 Sculpture by the Sea, Sydney), Great Britain, France, Germany, USA, Italy (2019 exhibition project at the 58th International Biennial of Art in Venice), among other places.
