"You are not alone – Czech artists to support the life after tsunami"

Heads

Our gallery bought ceramic heads, copies of 5000 years old sculpture from pre-Hellenistic period, so called Cycladic head, which was found on one of the Greek islands. We gave these heads to the artists to design and decorate them according to their fantasies. After all the Cycladic head also wasnt white but colored, as the rest of the colors on some parts of the sculpture show. Heads to decorate were given to 66 Czech artists, mostly from Prague, but also from Brno, Blansko and Jablonec nad Nisou.

Exhibitions and auction

Completed heads were exhibited in our gallery, then in Pelle villa in Prague 6. In conclusion we organised an auction, the gain of which was given to southeast Asia affected by the tsunami wave.

Artists

Jiří Anderle named this project „You are not alone“ and is also the author of the logo of the project. All the participating artists have shown great creativity and fantasy, because each one of the heads is different and unique. Just to mention, there is a head given form to Sleeping Beauty, Granny with glasses, soldier from the times of Austria-Hungary, Euro-clown, Chief shepherd, Head in clouds, Head full of cats and dozens more.
