Biography

Daniel Pitín was born in 1977 in Prague. He studied from 1994-2001 at the Prague Academy of Fine Arts. In 2007 was Pitín awarded the Mattoni Prize for the best new artist work at the Prague Biennale.

He is a young and talented painter who is inspired by film, theatre and photography aesthetics. The film scene itself played an important role: it enabled him to transform reality into an artificial space of the painting and therefore move freely on the borderline between abstraction and narrative content. What he tries to do is to isolate the information or memories from its natural environment and analyze them, reconstruct them again through a painting on canvas.

Noise

Šumění (Orig.) / 2012 / Czech Republic / 8 min

Daniel Pitín’s video Noise ranks among “found footage” films based on the variation and post-production of original film material. The video is made up of scenes from the Czech crime drama “The Murderer Hides His Face”, however, each scene has been modified by post-production. The original plot is deconstructed, returning to the very beginning rather than developing forward.

Sandstorm

Sandstorm (Orig.) / Czech Republic / 2 min

In the video Sandstorm, a Bauhaus building from Dessau, Germany, is set down in the middle of a North-African desert storm. Similarly, collage works present tribal natives embedded in classical European interiors. The presence of indigenous art forms in an empty ‘collectable’ villa, built on the contours of modernism, creates a counter point for cultural assimilation.

“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
