Although the sculptor Vladimír Škoda lives and works in France, he keeps returning to his homeland quite often and Czech public is not totally unfamiliar with his works. Škoda’s oeuvre, however, has not yet been presented in the Czech Republic in a complex extent, and Prague City Gallery therefore launched cooperation with the Kampa Museum in order to develop a project which would summarize the basic tendencies present in his oeuvre on a yet unprecedented scope. Vladimír Škoda works with abstract forms mainly inspired by celestial objects and the related theories. His work was in the past often presented in historical interiors and exteriors, where it formed an attractive contrast especially to medieval morphology in stone. In Troja Château, his works employing cold metal, especially steel and stainless steel, will enter into dialogue with the abundant structure of both the Baroque decoration and natural scenery in the gardens.
