Object:Paradise, the Prague-based performance and poetics collective, is celebrating the release of their second studio album and documentary with a live screening and performance.
The documentary, filmed entirely on VHS, follows the recording of the album, along with additional performances, interviews, and discussions that took place within the Žižkov creative community in 2021. Beginning with a streaming of the film and then proceeding with a live performance of the album, the happening will be composed in an arrangement of language, sound, and action performances in collaboration with various schools and communities across Prague.
The two pieces, curated and directed in 2021, feature over 20 Prague-based artists in compositions which span genres between mockumentary, documentary, punk, and world music. The objective of the projects was to “recreate the dialogues of noise and voice of Žižkov which were muted by the Covid-19 pandemic”.
