Kintera is one of the most successful and most interesting Czech artists of the youngest generation. His oeuvre is characteristic of a certain doubt concerning the possibilities and role of the arts. He creates sculptures and installations by combining or altering ordinary objects in unusual ways. By modifying common objects from everyday life, Kintera gives them new meaning and allows us to see a more removed perspective.
“Partly I am also interested in shifting with purposes of things and items from ordinary life. I am trying to bend and warp the reality, sometimes using minimum effort, sometimes with a lot of effort. After such a process of modulation a new strange item starts its new unnecessary existence. It is about having its own and new (dis)logic and that is very exciting for me. Basically these 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.“ Kristof Kintera
