Sunday saw a small celebration at the Jiri Svestka Gallery in central Prague. The American artist Stephen Prina unveiled his new conceptual film Vinyl II, and Radio Prague's Alena Skodova was there.
Under the name Vinyl II, Stephen Prina has created a unique composition combining music, performance and film. It focuses on the display of art in public institutions, from old masters to contemporary artists. Vinyl II is a unique attempt to juxtapose the cultural space of the museum and its existing collection, with a self-created musical score and recognizable allusions to modern art.
Stephen Prina explained to me how had his film come into existence:
Beijing ends agreement with Prague – but can spat harm Czech capital?
Czechs observe day of mourning for pop idol Karel Gott
Czechia now ahead of Spain in GDP per capita, but still below EU average
Thousands pay tribute to deceased national pop icon Karel Gott
In memoriam: Karel Gott, the ‘Bohemian nightingale’
