Jiří Černický has convinced the jury by his conceptual projects dealing with social issues based on natural human emotions. In his project Tears for Africa, he has collected real human tears which he personally brought to an Ethiopian cloister in Africa. Besides these projects, Černický has also engaged in relief painting, only later entering the real hall of fame of contemporary Czech art with his installations and objects.
