Maybe nothing, maybe something
In 1965, Jiři Kolář wrote an article which revealed his creative evolution not only as a poet but also as original artist who especially concentrated on collages. The definition of evident poetry includes the circumstances of the breakup with traditional poetry, in which words carried meaning. Kolazh analyzes the essence of his visual poetry while revealing the mundane inspiration and genesis (literal and figurative). He concentrated on the so-called ‘subject poems’ and earlier gradual discovery of the varieties of collage technique. Imaging characteristics of creative learning through different kinds of collage is based on the idea of overlapping poetry and visual arts. Readers of poetry participate in writing poems based on poetic ‘instruction’. Kolazh’s non-static poetry (also known as ‘comparative texts’) can be compared with action art. At the end of the article, Kolazh analyses the perspective of that kind of literature.
