The video originated within a project based on a system which uses another artist’s material. In my case I used Zuzana Žabková’s videos. The recontextualisation of her work by means of classical film structure did not work. Therefore I decided to work with a combination of two videos and their formal aspects: resolution, contrast, speed, rhythm and sound, and then combining the whole and the details.
If Zuzana’s direction has the character of choreography, in which the filmed constellations of a figure serve as bearers of the meaning, then I took over her creative method and to a certain extent made a new choreography for the videos. In fact it is a kind of formalist montage. The figurative component of rhythmized, changing shots of a dancing figure is in contrast with the abstracting details of the second video, while the black areas refer to the structure of the film as a medium.
