Transport of the statue of David Černý

In Europe Automotive Holding a.s. we do not only transport heavy industrial technologies.

A few weeks ago, we were given the opportunity to participate in the transport of masterpiece created in 1990 by the artist David Černý.

The three-ton bronze statue of the trabant, called QUO VADIS, was originally sculptured to commemorate the fall of the communist in Germany in 1989, when the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany became a temporary asylum for citizens of the NDR. There were more than 4,000 of them, and many of them left their Trabant vehicles in front of the building.

The statue was lent to Liberec, where it commemorates the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the communism. The statue will be infront of the Town hall until the autumn of next year, when it will be replaced by another masterpiece.

The author David Černý is a Czech artist who likes to shock with his works. He may be know for his project such as pink Tank No. 23, the inverted statue of St.Václav or the London Booster – double decker bus doing push ups which was created for the Czech House during the Olympic Games in London. In Liberec, we can currently find two of his projects. In addition to the newly installed Trabant, we have also had an artistic bus stop here since 2005 called Hostina obrů, which you will find in Sokolská Street.

What kind of mechanization did we use?

For the transport of the statue we used a MAN three-axle truck with a load capacity of up to 90 tons and a HYSTER S150A forklift truck, which you can rent as part of our machine rental program. (link - machine rental)
