Project Climax Paradisi
Client Agentura regionílního rozvoje
Year 2022
Description CLIMAX PARADISI - The longest glass ladder in the world. The entire installation permeates two floors of the tower of the North Bohemian Museum, which was built in 1850. The first part consists of the glass ladder itself. In the second part, the ladder is complemented by silver clouds made of hand-blown metallurgical glass. The museum tower is therefore equipped with glass weighing over a quarter of a tonne. It is a permanent installation of the North Bohemian Museum. The Climax Paradisi installation awakens an irrepressible desire to climb higher. To reach the world of human knowledge and then beyond. A ladder, even on a symbolic level, can help us see beyond the known horizons. To connect the profane with the sacred. As a metaphor, it appears in almost all human beliefs. Climb the glass ladder from the depths of time up to the present. One rung at a time, you will approach the Crystal Valley, a beautiful corner of our country in northern Bohemia, where for centuries the most beautiful glass imaginable has been born. Climb to Climax Paradisi.
