THE STRUCTURING OF SPACE. PAVEL KORBIČKA FOR SCOPE BLN. Boris Kostadinov, Berlin, 2019

Lübecker Straße is a typical street in Berlin’s old quarter of Moabit, an area in which the circumstances of various time periods from the modern and contemporary history have left clear traces. You can tell by the design of neon lights that adorn shops here or there that the place belonged to West Berlin during the Cold War. In the 1960s to ‘90s, the quarter was known as working-class...continue reading

TRACES OF LIGHT. LINES OF THOUGHT. ON PAVEL KORBIČKA. Mário Caeiro, Lisbon, 2019

Surface engraved with a narrow stroke, path
imagined between two points. Of singular thickness,
a glib remark, a fragment, an unfinished phrase.
It is any one edge of a shape and its contours
in entirety. Melody arranged, a recitation,
the ways horizons are formed. Think of leveling,
snaring, the body’s disposition (both in movement
& repose). It has to...continue reading

LIGHT AS AN EXPRESSION OF THE ART OF THE CONTEMPORARY WORLD, Miroslava Hajek, Novara, 2019

Pavel Korbička’s work is founded on an aesthetic basis according to which the principal role in the origin of a work of art is not objectivity but rather perception, feeling, dream and imagination. Light and colour, electric light that the artist applies instead of pigments, but also as a suggestion of the colour spectrum, may be reminiscent of a musical composition. Light is the essential element of...continue reading

SPACE, OR THE EVENT OF SPACE, Miroslav Petříček, Prague, 2011

Pavel Korbička is striking due to the inconspicuousness of his work. He quite graphically expresses Robert Morris’s words, that “simplicity of form is not the same as simplicity of experience”. The source of that with which he works is light and space. We know light, whether as a physical phenomenon, and as a symbol or metaphor; we know about space from geometry, and/or we are not aware of it at all when we move...continue reading

GERMINATIONS, BODY AND SPACE, Patrick Karez, Paris, 1995

Czech artist Pavel Korbička makes large-format wall installation, working with white wooden plates, simple drawings (that make you rather thinks of shadings) and coloured neons.
Pavel Korbička is one of the few artists who took direct inspiration from the magic of Delphi and its omnipresent treasures of antiquity in order to integrate this confrontation with the “ancient world” in his works.
On four...continue reading

AN INSTALLATION SEEKING TO UNSETTLE, Jiří Machalický, Prague, 2016

Space, Motion, Light
Pavel Korbička ranks among artists who work with maximum concentration. He exploits each creative impulse down to the minutest detail, is able to bring his message across with the use of the most economical devices, his idiom conveying an experience of great intensity. He works with space, light, and color, employing various combinations of new and classical technologies. He manages to conjure...continue reading

LIGHT CONDUCTORS, Jiří Valoch, Brno, 2005

Pavel Korbička is a Czech artist of the young generation, and certainly one of the less spectacular, who consistently pursues his themes rather than pressing for immediate success.  It seems quite symptomatic that his teachers at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague were Stanislav Kolíbal and Miloš Šejn.  Essentially, both are conceptual artists, yet their concept of art work differs greatly...continue reading
