25th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival

ji-hlavadok-revuecdfEmerging producersInspiration Forum


director: Nam June Paik
original title: Butterfly
country: South Korea
year: 1986
running time: 2 min.


This ironic collage connects aria from Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, a concert of American musician Laurie Anderson, and the symbol of butterfly. The conceptual work juxtaposes classic art and contemporary avant-garde, the East and the West, nature and civilization, and unites these contrasting themes in a diverse and poetic whole using visual effects. 


“I want to shape the TV screen canvas as precisely as Leonardo, as freely as Picasso, as colorfully as Renoir, as profoundly as Mondrian, as violently as Pollock and as lyrically as Jasper Johns.” J. P. Nam


Nam June Paik (1932-2006), a prominent member of the neo-Dadaist Fluxus movement, is considered the father of video art. Born in South Korea, he emigrated to the USA in 1964, where he helped create the multimedia landscape for fifty years. The Ji.hlava IDFF also presents his Global Groove.
