Kristek insisted that the 11th station should be unknown to the pilgrim, concealed. It should be somewhere between the first and last station, between the birth and death of the Thaya. He stuck to his intention resolutely. Through his work, Lubo Kristek asks urgent questions: Is the current postmodern society ceasing to feel the need to survive? Is it losing the survival instinct as a result of being so tightly trammelled?
There was no happening at the 11th station. For each pilgrim, his own search becomes the happening. The artist revealed the following concerning this hidden station:
“If you mix the day with the night and the night with the day, if you bring together all the addressed symbols from the other stations along with the nooks in nature which I found here, if you awaken all your senses, if at least for a while you drive out the ever more powerful rational aspect in order to let fantasy have its say... If you choose one direction for the earthy, humble, GO through the country with faith, hope and love, then you cannot fail to find this place, this station you seek. It exists, believe me. But it may take some people a while longer to find it.“
