CURRENT LOCATION: FAÇADE OF THE CASINO AND THE SEAFRONT, BLANKENBERGE

David Cerny

Humour with a wink at politics is the basic ingredient in the oeuvre of the Czech David Cerny. He made a group of sculptures with the name Babies on the occasion of the nomination of Prague as cultural capital in 2000. Three ‘Babies’ from this group were part of Beaufort02 in 2006. Since 2007 they have decorated the façade of the casino of the city of Blankenberge, to emphasize the city’s child friendly image. The dolls, two crawling on the façade and a third is looking out over the sea, attract the attention due to their big heads and black bodies. They disturb the public peace and order in a pleasant way.
