The former depot of the City Transport Company on Presslova Streetwill be given a new purpose for its existence in 2015. The work of Čestmír Suška, aptly named reSTART, is resonating with the moment of this new start, the inception of the creative zone of DEPO2015. This sculptor who has achieved global renown has in recent years been engaged in the creation of unusual sculptures made from discarded metal objects. The exhibition for the general public has two parts – an exterior and an interior one. The objects meant for the outdoor exhibition will roll in all directions around the depot yard, becoming part of the other events on the schedule. The indoor part will shed light on the background of the entire project, focusing on smaller objects. There is a programme of side events to accompany the exhibition, courses and guided tours. Three, two, one, (re)START towards DEPO2015!

The Depot on Cukrovarská Street will be given a new raison d'être in 2015, a fresh start which is also the perfect moment for the work of Čestmír Suška (*1952, a sculptor from the group Tvrdohlaví – Hardheads) to take the floor. Suška has been working in recent years with discarded metal objects, transforming them into sculptures which, besides the customary audience, will also captivate the general public. Nowadays, Čestmír Suška is a globally renowned sculptor. In 2012, there was a retrospective exhibition of his works at the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art and 2015 will see his exhibition being a part of the opening of a new phase in the existence of the DEPO 2015 creative zone. Other events, courses and guided tours will accompany the exhibition.

The exhibition has both an exterior and interior part. The objects outside will roll in all directions around the depot yard, staying here to become a part of the other scheduled events. The interior part will explain the background of the whole project and present some smaller objects.

The exhibition is co-financed by the Pilsen Region.
