Adopted text on the work: The Norwegian artist Jesper Alvaer (1973), who studied at the Prague Academy of Fine Arts between 1997 and 2004, has noticeably influenced the Czech art platform mainly by his work reflecting cultural operation and relationships amongst communities.
His videos in a compilation from 1999-2004 make up a compact unit following alike motifs and themes. The short films show everyday reality which the author designs or just simply records. They are related by matching the camera eye, a game in which a simple slit through the objective creates a new autonomous event. Some of the videos were a part of his solo exhibition Installation in the Malá Špálovka Gallery in 2002.
Videos in the compilation: Birds, Oranges, Draw a Line and Follow, Bus Stop, Plastic Bag, Stripes, Reflex, Clouds, Gravity, Kritik der Urteilskraft, Singing and Dancing in the Park.
