Elen Řádová 1993, video, 9:26 min.

One of Řádová’s first student videos (and also one of the first digital animations to be created by a Czech artist), Venus consists of a series of intimate close-up shots of a woman shaving various parts of her body. The stylized image, which moves in a distinctly slowed-down, almost dreamlike rhythm, is accompanied by the famous “Lady in the Radiator Song” from David Lynch’s depressing and psychotic film Eraserhead (1979) with the lyrics “In Heaven, everything is fine.”
