The Geometry of Stanislav Kolíbal


Czech artist Stanislav Kolíbal has been an integral part of his country's art scene for well over half a century (the minimalist mastermind turns 90 in a year and some change). His work, which features mostly sculpture, has been shown everywhere from the Guggenheim to the Musée d'Art Moderne in Paris. Even when working with drawings and more two-dimensional mediums, Kolíbal's work is always hyper-linear and architectural in execution. Long story short: The guy is always messing around with the concept of space. 

To get a better sense of his sculptural work, you can watch this video from his 1992 exhibition, "Constructions." If you speak French, you're in luck; you'll actually be able to understand what they're talking about.
