Czech artist Michal Trpak‘s installation ‘Slight Uncertainty’ has been inspired by the economic crisis that has affected the entire world. The installations have been installed at the EBC Office in Prague and also at the Festival Mesto artistic Lidem in Ceske Budejovice, a small town in the Czech Republic.
Most of Trpak’s installations have been displayed in public places as the primary goal is to create a dialogue between public life, the surrounding architecture and sculptures.”This is the dialogue I am trying to get with my art, dialogue among my art, architecture and people. And if the people are talking about the installation and if it somehow affects them it means that it is good.” explains Michal Trpak.
The cement human figures holding work bags in one hand and holding on to an umbrella with another represents the people belonging to the working middle-class society who have taken the biggest hit in the recession. The airborne figures portray an expression of sadness, despair and an apparent instability.
