Prague’s next David Černý sculpture is coming to Karlín

From a rotating Kafka head to his signature alien babies (recently returned to their home on the Žižkov Tower) the works of Czech artist David Černý are an integral part of the Prague cityscape.

A new Černý project is slated to make its debut, according to the new issue of Prague 8 newsletter Osmička.

The Nová Invalidovna project, a residential building slated for construction next spring, will feature a larger-than-life Černý sculpture hugging its modern facade.

The property will offer apartments, underground parking, and a courtyard on the ground floor with a fitness center, cafes, and drugstores.

The construction should kick off in the second half of 2022. Trigema is the investor and developer of the Nová Invalidovna project with architectural work provided by Qarta Architecture. 

In 2016, the Czech artist-provocateur unveiled a towering robot for the opening of the Czech Photo Centre, a museum in Nové Butovice showcasing the work of leading Czech and international photographers.

Černý’s latest endeavor, a two-floor restaurant called Cyberdog, opened in Prague in 2018, and is serviced by Europe’s first robotic bartender.
