Ophelia in the Looking Glass

Here is a little moving glimpse into Ophelia's world behind the mirror, or is it a computer screen? We followed Ophelia as she drowned herself inside a bowl of soup as if it were a lake, during her last supper. After that the shadow Ophelia travelled into the darkness of Candid Arts Club underworld, dressed... Continue Reading →

The Transparent Senses

How do we relate with our close ones when they are far, unreachable, and displayed to us through a flat screen designed to keep us safe, at distance? We see them, we talk to them, the information flow passes between us, courtesy of our advanced digital world. But how do we really keep in touch... Continue Reading →

Underwater Ophelia

We know that Ophelia drowned, she took a plunge into a large soup bowl, where wild flowers floated, making her departure from this world rather aesthetically pleasing.

Something about the different time scales being out of synch with each other. The whole experience of walking with Steve yesterday felt... Continue Reading →

Thoughts from behind the screen

Still from a filming of Self-isolation dinner, April 2020 We are living through a moment in time where a physical proximity of others has become a threat.

95th birthday of my Grandmother

Today is the 95th birthday of my grandmother Jiřina Vojáčková. Here she is in 2015 and 1940. Because we can't celebrate together in person, I wanted to mark the occasion by sharing here a short film I made, in 2017, a small tribute to the other 3 generations of women in my family. Here we...

Self-isolation Dinner – script

I wanted to share with you the latest poetic film script, which was inspired by the current lockdown and social distancing rules, while also continuing with my experiments using food and its ingestion as a means of transportation into interior worlds. I am very interested in the creative process and therefore find sharing different steps... Continue Reading →
