Aleš Hnízdil and Jiří Kačer belong to the same generation of artists. Both of them criticized the former attitude towards art which led to the re-opening of the Gallery of Youth u Řečických which was the first venue where the artists can freely exhibit in Czechoslovakia.
However, both of them utilised different material and techniques – and their exhibited works will give the impression of a contrast yet they will seem to fit together. Hnízdil’s work is based on the meditative perception of space; he prefers to work with spatial lines (featuring wire constructions with kinetic details). Kačer contributed to the rehabilitation of stone as a modern sculptural material and seems to be inspired by figurative tradition.
