About the work
Kristof Kintera
Czech, b. 1973
Follow

Known for his humorous mechanical sculptures, typically made from found objects, Kristof Kintera creates works that “bend and warp” the reality of ordinary items and occurrences. In Revolution (2005), a robotic replica of a child stands facing a gallery wall as if punished for bad behavior, periodically (and humorously) banging its head against the wall like a human woodpecker. Kintera has said his works “should not need verbal explanation. They are just here and that’s it. Let’s see what they can do without protecting them by explaining what they are.”
