Collages and poems were special intellectual moments in the life of Jiří Kolář, which took place immediately before putting a poem on paper or making a collage. These were two options of putting his intellectual perceptions into concrete form. The pencil is exchanged against scissors, old newspaper and glue. The collages show pictures, reliefs and objects. The style and the design method were adapted according to the conditions of or the statement in every specific case. The artist created some uniformity by producing the same surface structure for the printed paper. It irritates the viewer that the artist refuses to endow objects with their own material nature. Jiří Kolář draws the viewer's attention to the essential point, to his artistic action. The quotations from different periods in art history demonstrate his particular sense of humor and wit, as well as his irony.
