Film as an Art Object – The Films Of Stanislav Hora. Jihlava IDFF
October 28 - 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
“The little-known Super 8mm films of Stanislav Hora (1959) from the 1980s are a little studied area of artistic film in our country. With his background in sculpture, Hora approaches film more as an artistic material – he uses it to animate the creation of sculptures, he draws on it, scratches and attacks its surface or uses it as a medium for art happenings. For Hora, film is a tool for expanding his artistic practice into other forms, a means for capturing visual processes or a kind of sculptural object. The Ji.hlava screenings are the premiere of newly digitized versions.”
Curator and author of the texts: Martin Blažíček (CAS FAMU)
