Pinup Version I

year: 1961

The black and white collage film was originally made by Pilař at a time when he was getting acquainted with the expressive language of the Nordic band Cobra. At the same time, it falls into the period of his parting with academic modernism in favour of the new language of pop-art. He revisited his film collages and decollages supplemented with animated fluids accompanied by music by The Residents in 1984 as a screener projected onto various surfaces.


Radek Pilař (1931–1993) was one of the leading pioneers of video art 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.
