PAF participates on yearlong curatorial program Fragile Cinema in Youth Gallery (Galerie Mladých), Brno. The fourth exhibition is a project by Jiří Kotrla 'Ordinary Language'.
Opening of the exhibition will take place on Tuesday, 4th of September, 5.30 pm.
Jiří Kotrla's creative method is his movement between the Czech Republic and Portugal, revealing the forgotten sceneries and reshaping their surroundings by using moving images. Via the footage, new film environments emerge, created only by documentation or subtle styling during the processof filming. As a result, Kotrla's creative work in his "role of a foreigner" seems as rather non-violent articulation of forgotten, though by-civilization-inward language composed of traces of post-colonial imprints, and as literally physical work on the shots.
The author uses more universal English expression as a title of his exhibition (rather than its morespecific Czech equivalents, in translation "colloquial speech" or "commonly spoken language"), reflecting his intentional work with references and fragments of citations – in this case from the bookThe Practice of Everyday Life by French thinker Michel de Certeau.
