Slight Uncertainty by Michal Trpák

View all 8 Photos

In his installation “Slight Uncertainty,” Artist Michal Trpák puts a philosophical spin on the Mary Poppins flight by umbrella. The piece features many cement figures hanging dearly onto open umbrellas in a rainbow’s spectrum of colors, all of the individuals floating in an atrium-type space in the EBC office center in Prague. Uncertainty rests in the state of being, whether these figures are anticipating a rise – or even descent – with excitement or perhaps dread. The contrast of the heavy, material concrete contrasts the situational lightness captured by the installation. One thing that is certain: the dreamlike, thought-provoking, and inspirational effect of the colorful umbrellas.
