Petra Lelláková & Vladimíra Večeřová

Petra Lelláková assisted Vladimíra Večeřová with her graduation project at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague in 2013. They both filmed short humorous sketches in which they absurdly pantomimically helped and obstructed each other. This year, the graduate roles have changed along with their recent common videos: rather than documentation of performances, they have become complexly composed and balanced live images in which both protagonists dressed in strange microplush leotards move, sometimes only a few centimetres. The emphasis is on the image as a whole, which in parallel scenes quotes various fragments of Art History periods. (pv)
