original title: Barvy 1965
running time: 2 min.
synopsisPilař returned to his original abstract film experiments in the mid-1980s when he could afford to buy his own Betamax video camera. During this period, a series of screeners were created that served as the basis for his later video experiments. Among other things, the painted animations were used to create the music video Pink Floyd (1984) and its later version reworked using the mosaic effect, Colours 1965 (1991).
biographyRadek Pilař (1931–1993) was one of the leading pioneers of videoart in Czechoslovakia in the 1980s. Lying at the intersection of animation, video, and applied forms, his work was inspired by visual expressionism, pop art, and post-war avant-garde film.
