Hommage to Billie 2003-2004
Tomislav Gotovac (1937) is
considered the precursor of performance art in the former Yugoslavia.
He began his career with photographic works and then he moved on to produce
collages, films and performances. The artist made a number of avant-garde
structuralist films, which positioned him alongside experimental filmmakers
like Michael Snow and Peter Frampton. In his works, Gotovac plays close
attention to procedures of film directing, including quotes and extracts
of images and music as references and homages to other film directors
and musicians who have inspired him.
