couch for big men, or cherchez la femme

this for the sake of a man´s greater sensation of comfort, so that his sitting is both comfortable and – mainly – dignigfied, thus becoming a big man.

Helena brought in her sculptor son Matyáš Chochola, winner of Jindřich Chalupecký Prize, to create the sculptures of women which would bear the couch.

The women are of course cast in gold, joyful and content.
For they know that supporting their man is nothing against gender equality or self-respect.
For they know that the foundation of a partnership is love.
For they know that the man will reward their support in gold.

The gold statuettes are shaped as a jogawoman, a mermaid, a sphinx, a guitar player, a Nike of Samothrace, a cubist woman…
It is up to the man to choose the right tandem which will bear him…
For every man dreams of a „golden lady“ (or two?) by his side…

The project includes a series of photographs by Karin Zadrick depicting trully big men who represent different „genres“ – groups of men who we women look up to and admire. Here – the big men in Helena´s eyes.
