At the beginning of the 1970s Jolanta Marcolla was one of the founding members of a group of artists known as "The Actual Art's Agency". The members were students and graduates of the Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław (painting and sculpture departments) with a particular interest in film and photography. In her films, Marcolla focuses on the analysis of media properties of film and video (concentrating mainly on the analysis of the relation between the film and the reality depicted within). She presents her movies as very long film loops.
The artist explains: “Coercion and confrontation as effects of actions of an aggressive camera in real conditions in the first part of the film are confronted in its second part with forced repetitions of the shot using the formal procedure of copying and editing a fragment of the film stock.”
