Martin Kollar has gathered international recognition for his insightful observations of human relationship with the surroundings. 

 

On 31th August, 2019 the way Martin Kollar looked at the world changed. Everything has changed. Decision of his partner, Maria, to end her own life, was a distinct cut, a sharp delineation of the before and after.      

As part of the grieving process the artist came back to the archive and materials they did together for the film Letopis that was planned as their film. “I could do nothing other than continuously browse through the multitude of images, re-visiting the years, months and days spent together.”  

Hidden contexts and threads began to emerge, and the photos created “before” paradoxically became a language to tell the story of the unexpected After.
