David Cerny

°1967, Prague, Czech Republic  

Since 1991 David Cerny is known for his playful approach. At the time he painted a Russian tank, which functioned as a memorial stone of the liberation of Prague, into pink. A storm of protest followed, and Václav Havel, who was president at the time, had the tank repainted into army green. Speaking in jest about politics is the basic ingredient of Cerny’s work. Around the Middelkerke casino in 2006, Cerny exhibited his Babies (1995), which he made on the occasion of Prague, Capital of Culture 2000. The crawling dolls with big heads and black bodies disturb public peace and order in a pleasant way.
