A small section from the painting "The Flight to Egypt" by Joachim Patinir from 1515/24, today in the Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten, Antwerp, is located in the lower right. The sheet is mainly covered with paper cutouts inscribed with series of numbers. For his chiasmage technique Jirí Kolár uses letters, historic postcards, cloth samples or chess books that he finds on flea market. By "tearing, cutting and crumbling them he deconstructs the original motifs and puts them together again, however, from a different perspective..'The chiasmage offered me the opportunity viw the world from thousand and one angles' " the artist says.
