“The word ‘robot’ is surprisingly of a purely Czech origin, invented by painter Josef Čapek for his brother Karel. Comparing the word with Josef Čapek’s paintings, one gets the impression that Josef Čapek anticipated some of the first robots in his paintings. Looking at his work, I tried to give his idea a third dimension,” explains Jakub Berdych. Robots are usually defined as machines which are independent to a certain degree, performing tasks in the way assigned by the operator. The Křehký Robot is a free robot. Even though it is a static figure, it is very charming and radiant. It is neither a milling cutter nor a cleaner. An R2-D2 in the world of beauty and fragility. A materialized essence of Art Nouveau and modernist history, Czech cubism and contemporary futurism.
