City, its lamps and other creatures. Bronze objects, prints, paintings and iron sculptures. Models of monuments dedicated to street lamps and objects in urban landscape.

The exhibition was previously shown at the Czech Centre Paris under the name Les Lumières de la ville. It presents work primarily from the years 1990-2010. The exhibition is accompanied by a book featuring Karlik’s texts and essays by art historian Pavla Pečinková, designed by Luboš Drtina. The book is published in Czech, English and French by Revolver Revue Editions.

Viktor Karlík (born on March 13, 1962 in Prague) is considered one of the most prominent visual artists of the so called Second Generation of the Czech underground. Besides his art work, he received recognition as a co-founder of and editor for the Revolver Revue magazine. His main focus has been his independent art work, much of which draws inspiration from Prague’s Smíchov district. His art has been exhibited in the Czech Republic and abroad. Viktor Karlík’s pieces can be found in the Czech National Gallery in Prague as well as in other public and private collections.
