Jiří Bielecki / Black Gravitable
The idea of using new materials, such as slashed plastic foil of different colours in spatial objects that were often suspended was something quite innovatory in this country at the end of the 1960s. His gravitables became objects that could be given new forms and can be used to define space in a new way and draw the viewer into events in a three-dimensional way.
The natural, endless movement that evokes feelings of lightness is structured with an emphasis on transformation. Because of the nature of the materials not many of the artefacts have been preserved in their original state, hence the particular value the gallery’s intact exhibit.
